1:12 Scale Paper Roses
personal use only, pleaseYou will need:
sheet of paper in color you would like your rose
Step 1:Punch out several hearts from your paper. You will need about 8 - 10 hearts per rose.
Step 2:Cut a piece of floral wire. You’ll only want it an inch at the end, but you can cut it longer to make it easier to work. It’s easy to cut it down later.
Step 3:Fold a heart in half, lengthwise and unfold. You will do this with every heart you use for your roses. Use a toothpick to place glue along the crease. Glue to the top of your piece of wire.
4:Put just a bit of glue at the bottom of the crease of your next heart.
You’ll want to attach this heart to the heart already on your wire. You’ll want the round part of this heart to be on the side of the flat part of the first one.
Step 5.Put glue on the bottom of the crease of your next heart. Glue to the bottom of your budding rose, off to one side. Repeat on the other side.
