Another cardstock rose tutorial!

Here comes another card stock rose tutorial! This one is super simple! Will take you about 10 minutes to make.

All you need is;
  • scraps of card stock
  • fast drying glue
  • scissors
Optional:
  • ink
  • glimmer mist


Cut out a spiral with diameter about 4 ". Usually I don't even draw on the card stock. I just cut away. Make sure to leave a spot in the middle about 1".

Ink the edges if you like and then comes the trick..to bend down the edges. This makes all the difference.

Start from the outside and roll to the middle. Another trick is to try to roll the bottom edge a little bit tighter than the top edge. So that the rose will kind of get a cone shape.
When you are done rolling up the rose, put glue in the middle part and press the whole rose on top and hold down for a while.

You can finish off with glimmer mist and hand cut some leaves and attach under the rose.

I think they are so pretty. Now I just have to find some use for them;)
I stole this idea from a very talented lady;http://www.nancyburke.typepad.com/

Hi Hellen! I wish I had seen your blog before! So many giveaways!!! Would I qualify for one of them? I´ve been a scraper for 7 years now. Four years back home in Argentina where scrapbooking is not known. No supplies, no Michaels, no embellishments. I do the real scrapping, literally with scraps. Wouldn´t that qualify for one of your giveaways? I see you girls up there in the US or in Europe have such an abundance of things: papers, cutters, mists, stickles, blings, the whole thing!!!!!!!!! This is my e-mail address in case you feel like sending some of your stuff, leftovers, whatever! It´s anuchianuchi@aol.com Thanks!!!
