31  Paper Roses, with a very detailed (and pic obese) tutorial. Pics fixed. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kayla_Wte on: November 23, 2006 01:18:00 AM

1) Dye coffee filters. You will need two coffee filters of slightly different colors to make ONE rose. (I used coffee and tea)

2) Fold your coffee filter THREE times.  Hack off the tip! BE VIOLENT!

3) Cut out a petal shape.  Make sure none of your petals are attached.  Repeat steps 1-3 with the other color.

4) Curl the corners of your petals.  I use my scissors!  Grin

5)Wind some wire (I use 29 gauge) around a corsage pin (or something similar).

6) Start adding your petals with the corners facing IN, alternating the colors as you go.  Wind the wire around EACH petal.  

7) Keep adding petals, overlapping the previous one by about 1/3.  After approx. 8 or 9 petals, start facing the curls OUT.  Continue until there are NO petals left.

8. Add a toothpick to the bottom of your rose (with MORE wire ;p ), then cover said toothpick with floral tape. Sorry about the blurriness of this one.

9) Add embelishements.

10) Project complete!!! WOOOOOO - freakin - HOOOOOOOOO!

Anyways, guys and girls, that would be that! I'd love some feedback.
