I think I'll have to show this thread to my bf. He's been trying to work out how to make roses out of sheet metal, and so far, every attempt that he has made has failed miserably.

This might be useful as a stepping-stone for him Smiley

It is very pretty. I think it looks like a real rose kind of. Tongue

Beautiful! Love it!

And potentially a decent fund raiser for a not for profit (assuming they have the patience to make them!).

I made a half dozen of these for my partner in the Earth Day Swap. Thanks for the great tutorial-they were easy to make. I did use recycled coffee filters. I didn't have the pearl pin for the center so instead I "fringed" the lil triangle you cut off each filter and glued it over the skewer tip-it looks like a flowers stamen. I also wanted an vintage look so I crumpled the filters before cutting, and after I made each I would crumple, fidget with each rose and sprayed them(several light layers)  with aerosol hairspray to stiffen them.

I was just going over to M. Stewart's website to see her instructions (and then I thought, what about craftster!).

You know, I remember using Kleenex and bobby pins to do this when I was a kid.  (Nowadays, parents would give you a Game Boy instead.)

i love this idea, I'm going to try to make this for my mom for mother's day!
i just have one question(this might sound a bit dumb) but how did you die the filters? did you just fill a cookie pan(a deep one) add some coffee and a ton of water and leave it there for a while?
and would you happen to have a template or whatever you call it of how you drew the rose pedals on the filter(like how big you drew it, the shape) b/c i don't think i can actually make mine look like pedals =)
