I may need to come up with a new word because I "love" way way way too many things it seems. what I really love is -Jesus, my husband, my family, my friends, and this beautiful earth we are so blessed to enjoy and explore.
now that my priorities are in line.... I do really fancy paper.
mostly printed paper.
magazines, books, newspaper...
the possibilities are endless!
here is one way to get creative with paper.
they are so beautiful and so easy!
cut a sheet of paper (I used magazine) in a spiral. as long as you want.
if you want you can draw a spiral out on the paper before cutting, but it's not necessary.
I'm an on the fly kinda girl, I do things my way and not very instructional.
don't worry about making it perfectly straight or even, it will add character to the rose.
then start rolling up the paper keeping the bottom tight and allowing the top to kind of fan out.
add a dab of glue (I used a glue stick) as you go to keep if from unraveling
once it's all rolled up it should look like a rose! be careful not too roll it too tight, keep it organic and whimsical :)
I want to make a ton and do something similar to this.
I have SO many other paper projects I've done that I want to share, but I have to pace myself.... right?
