Paper Rose Tutorial

I received a ton of requests on the Bo Bunny blog from people wanting to know how I made the roses on the wreath that was o the BB blog (see my post before this to see the wreath). So, I made a little video on how to make your own. Please be kind and remember that I am no professional! :) There is a part where I escape off of the screen for a little while...oops. So, I am following this video up with some photos of what you misssed.  Here's the video...




and here the photos....


This first one is what your square piece of paper looks like after you have folded it in half diagonally three times. 
                            


this second one shows me holding the tip that is folded, you will cut the top of your petal on the end that I am NOT holding.


This third photo is what your triangle should look like after you have cut the top of the flower.



This last photo is of me now holding the rounded end of the flower petal that I just cut off in the previous photo. You now need to cut off the pointed tip. This is what your flower should look like once you have done that.



Hope that helps those of you that were having difficulty visualizing it!

I look forward to seeing all of your projects with these roses!
