Who wouldn't be totally smitten by the giver of a dozen GIANT roses?
So easy to make and only uses 2 things!
Lightweight Paper and hot glue! You pick the colors!
Step 1: 25 pieces of paper!
You will need about 5-6 sheets cut into half size petals
You will need 1 sheet of paper for the center
And 4-5 sheets for leaves.
So, about 25 sheets of paper for 1 giant flower!
Let's get started!
I used whole sheets of paper and cut
them into rough petal shapes. Could be more rounded petals
or more heart shaped, depending on how you want your finished product to look.
Step 2: Center spiral!
Cut in a spiral, leaving the edges about 1 1/2 to 2 " wide.
Starting on the outside edge of the spiral,
I rolled it into a rosette...
Hot gluing periodically--to make a spiraled little bud.
Hot glued it into place on the circular center shaped that remained.
Step 3: Petal to the metal!
I began gluing them around the bud.
Just run a bead of hot glue along the bottom edge of the petal.
Press it carefully to the bud. Let it cool before doing the next petal.
Glue larger and larger petals on until it "looks" right.
The real professionals "eye-ball it" :)
Step 4: Curling!
they will just make a natural curl and relax.
Add some giant leaves on the bottom edge...with hot glue of course.
