All you need is;
- scraps of card stock
- fast drying glue
- 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 stole this idea from a very talented lady;http://www.nancyburke.typepad.com/
