Thanks for all your comments about the little grungepaper rose I made at a crop a week or two ago. I wsh I could take all the credit but I cant, they were made based on the instructions by Maria on her fab blog http://meholder.blogspot.com/2009/03/paper-flower-tutorial.html.


I played with them some more, and thought I would share these paper versions. I dont have the punch we used at the crop, so I had a go using my cricut and found one of the flowers on Accent Essentials worked just fine. Its not quite a symmetrical flower but that adds to the charm of the roses it creates I think, after all roses arent perfectly symmetrical are they?


These were done using plain white 80 or 100gsm printer paper. The pink one was just inked round the edges. The pale orange one was lightly inked all over, then stamped with a darker orange script stamp and also inked round the edges. They also feature in the photos I used to make my new banner.

What divine roses! What sort of flower shape do I need to make them? Will have a look at the instructions and see if I can make something 1/10th as pretty as yours!!
