Gosh these are so exquisite! I love flowers, and roses are lovely, but cut flowers never last, and even live blossoms eventually wilt off the vine.
I think I've found something to fill some time this summer!
Anyone know how to keep something like this dust-free? My place gets really dusty, and these would be even harder to clean than silk flowers!

Basically you can just tap the stem against something to knock the dust off, or lightly brush the top with a makeup/paint brush.

This is so totally, totally cool!  I really thought they were real tea roses - and so much cheaper for things that could last forever instead of days!

These are beautiful! And to think I just bought a lovely, super-realistic silk rose from Michael's, when I could have made one instead. They are really wonderful; I am going to have to try them.

For people wanting to scent their roses, I don't know how it will work on paper, but I put several drops of my Honeysuckle Delight Lampe Berger oil on the silk rose I bought, and after the alcohol evaporated, it smells EXACTLY like a real rose! Lampe Berger oil is pricey though, but there are probably other honeysuckle-scented things out there to try. I also think Orange Blossom has a nice "rosey" scent. I have never run across a scent actually marked "rose" that smelled as much like a real one as either of these.
