Hi everybody.. I had posted before but being new was unable to add my picture because I had not posted 10 times yet but after looking around Crafster that didn't take to long LOL! SUCH cute stuff here...so I want to try this again.  I thought I would jump right in and share my latest craft.  I saw this on an online tutorial a long time ago (wish I could remember where)  but never forgot it.  I finally made some... so what do you think??  I have a few ideas about what I can do with them but am anxious to hear others ideas as well!




Nice to meet everybody!!

Really pretty. I would put them all over a wreath or special picture frame. Stupid question..how do you keep them from unrolling? Is it just hot glue?

no... not a stupid question! After rolling them I use a small piece of clear tape and tape it down but then take a small paper circle with a glob of hot glue and just stick the whole flower onto the circle w/glue- making sure all layers are stuck on the bottom.. helps stabilize it and keep its shape.  I have a tutorial if your interested at http://hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Make-Gorgeous-Paper-Roses 

Thanks for the reply!!

Thanks Brackish.. yes, they would be really cute in felt wouldn't they? I'm amazed at some of the things made from felt. I bought some sheets of felt like over a year ago and they are still sitting there :0(  Procrastination....

I was confused by this for a second as I'd just gone into your first post to make your picture show up Cheesy You can always edit your posts if you have something you'd like to add or change in future.

They look gorgeous just as they are in that bowl, but I think they'd look wonderful as napkin rings by attaching them to a band of card.
