Crepe Paper Roses

Crepe Paper Roses

You can make roses with just about anything…paper,ribbon ,fabric ,wool,sponge….the options r so many...
Here r some crepe paper roses which r very simple ,yet pretty.




Start with a strip of crepe paper.The length and the width is totally your choice. For bigger flowers use a broad  and long strip but for something small and dainty you will need a thin and small strip.

Start by rolling a tight centre, roll it a couple of times.

Now just keep twisting and turning the strip till u reach the end .
Glue the ends.










For a shimmery look use glitter,I have used the natural glitter this blends with any colour..
Since we don’t get pastel coloured crepe paper I have dyed the paper with diluted waterproof inks.
You must wait for the paper to dry as it is very fragile.If u r in a rush use your hair dryer,it will dry in a jiffy.
