So, I've been trying to find a good site to show me how to make dollar bill roses.... I know it's out there, because there are links, but it seems a lot of them are down. Anyway.. if anyone could explain it to me or show me a good site, I'd be thrilled. I wanted to make a bouquet of these damn things for my lovey on Valentine's.

Thanks!!

I hope this helps too...Good luck!

Dollar Bill Rose

5 crisp bills
Floral tape
18 or 20 gauge wire

Fold bill in half lengthwise. Unfold. Lay bill back side facing up (looking at George). Curl all 4 corners tightly using a toothpick. Curl until the the opposite 2 side curls meet at fold. Scrunch the bills in the center, from the bottom of George to the top. Fold wire in half and place the scrunched center of the bill into the fold of the wire. Twist the wire to secure. Shape bill by smoothing out the base and forming a cup-like shape. Do this to remaining bills.

On the 1st petal push in tight to form the inner petals. Place inside of the second, pushing these petals tight. Intertwine the wires as you add petal layers. Twist the bills so that the edges are not lined up. Continue until you've used up all bills. Each layer will be a little looser than the one before it. Shape the rose. You can use a bit of tape to keep the petals where you want them. Gather all the wires from the bills and wrap with floral tape. Start at the base of the rose and wrap. Add rose leaves.
