How to Make "Post It Notes" Roses

In this instructable, easily made roses are made out of post it notes. Any colored paper will do, of course, but these note pads seem to be everywhere, esp. at work!

Step 1: Materials needed

Picture of Materials needed
Gather your post it notes, or colored paper, scissors, glue, forceps or tweezers, etc.

Step 3: Roll Circles Into a Cone Shape.

Self explanatory, what you want is a cone shaped unit that is glued on one end and then added into another unit, or rolled piece of paper.

Step 4: Cut Paper for exterior pedals

Cut the note into thirds as shown. The part on the right is the sticky part, which we don't want.

Step 5: Put all parts together

After all parts are glued as shown, it's time to put them altogether into the final flower.

Step 9: Completed roses and leaves

The roses and leaves are glued together simply by arranging the leaves in a pattern that looks natural. Try a dry run, then glue each leaf in turn into it's position on the roses.

i dont have any glue, so i kept the sticky edge on as a way to stick all the bits together. it might not be as durable, but it works for now

Hey, I used your flower technique and added a stem, leaves and thorns of my own and gave it to my wife for V-Day. She absolutely loved it! Quote: "I love this even more than if you would have bought me flowers because you took the time to actually make something like this for me....*kiss*" Thanks mate for a great instructable, you saved my V-Day and saved me some $!

Great! Did you take a picture? Cman
Awww, no. But it is still sitting on my wife's office desk at work, I'll get a pic monday and post it. It's not the greatest thing but she liked it and that's all that matters to me!
