In this tutorial we will go through some simple steps, but time consuming... (depending on the size of roses your crafting!).
But the reacts from your friends and family when they see your masterpiece will make up for the time spent!
Step 1: Material Needed
Price: 1 -3 Dollar || Time: 2 - 10h || Difficulty: Easy - Medium
For this project you will need:
- Napkins/Tissues (A lot of them!)
- Paper clip
- Paper glue (That turns transparent when dry!)
You can of course change the size of both the ball and flowers. Larger ball and smaller flowers (as shown in next step) will increase the time spent on this project! Make it as you want, this is only a guide line!! :)
Step 2: Instruction Video
Start of by watching this instruction video I have made! The video
is showing all of the steps to craft this rose ball. In the flowing steps I will show in details by pictures how to fold/craft the rose it self. All other steps are shown in this video.
If you can not watch the video true the "picture frame", then you can follow this link instead! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-XOQsZocLc
Step 3: Cuting the Stripes
In this pictures I use patterned tissues. Even if it does not craft a realistic rose it can still create some wonderful effects and make the ball personalized!
Start of by pealing of any extra layers from your napkin (that may be there). You only want the layer with the pattern/color!
Then cut of stripes that are roughly 6cm, but you do not need to be precise. It is only a guideline! If you want to make larger flowers you can increase the size. This is only for the flower size shown in the video.
Do the same thing for a couple of tissues, you will need a lot of them!
Step 4: The Roll
Straiten your paper clip and place it roughly 2 cm from one of the edges, with the pattern facing down towards the table. Then roll until the whole fold is gone (as shown in picture "3.").
