How to make a paper rose

Step 1:

Cut your card stock into a circle (it does not have to be a perfect circle.)

Step 2:

Cut your circle into a spiral. Remember, the thinner the strips are in your spiral, the more layers you will have in your paper rose. Leave a small circle at the end of your spiral for your “rose petals” to rest on

Step 3:

Beginning with the end that is on the outside of the circle, coil the strip of card stock around your finger until you have what looks like a rose.

Step 4:

Squeeze hot glue onto the small circle at the end of your spiral. Press all your “petals” firmly to the hot glue. Cut any left over card stock away from the bottom of the rose.

Step 5:

While the glue is still hot, sprinkle glitter in the center of your rose. Shake the glitter around in the bottom of the rose until the center is completely covered. Turn the rose upside down and shake out the excess glitter.
