yet elegant gift for anyone.
Roses received on Valentine's Day don't last very long, but these paper roses (if kept out
of reach of kids) will be here for a long, long time. When finished, a light spritz of perfume
can make the scent really fresh.
Each vase and flower can be made differently, so that each one is unique and special.
At the end of this instructable, I put in a few other rose vases that I made.
Step 1: Making the Vase: Building the Pieces
You end up making around 140 of these pieces and then assemble
them together to form the vase.
Step 2: Putting the Pieces Together
For this step, you will end up making 3 complete rows
with 20-25 pieces (I had 23) in each row.
Step 3: Creating the Sides
Step 4: Finishing the Vase
Glue (from a hot glue gun) might need to be used if the pieces fall apart or aren't tight,
but were not needed in this project.
Step 5: Creating the Rose
Step 6: Finishing the Rose
Included in this step are variations I made of this rose vase.
Keep this project in mind next year if you are thinking about making
something really creative and unique for that special someone!
