Tutorial : A Simple Paper Rose

 Hey everyone! How do you like roses? Well, now you can make your own paper roses! I find it pretty simple so I thought of sharing this with you guys! Enjoy!

Here's what you need :
1) Round piece of paper (I used art block paper)
2) Scissors (preferably patterned)
3) Satay stick
4) Tape/Blue tack
 Firstly, you'd have to draw swirls in your circle till it reaches the middle. I was lazy so I just got on to cutting without really drawing. You can do this if your estimation is not bad. If you don't have a patterned scissors, use a normal one and cut waves instead. They need not be all the same.
 Take your satay stick, and pull it both ways vertically so that a slit forms in the middle. With the slit, place the end of the paper in like the picture above.
 Start twirling!
 This is how it looks like at the end of twirling! See the satay stick holding on to the paper with its slit? Try to loosen your rose a little and take the satay stick out. Be careful not to tear the paper!
 After you loosen the paper a little, it should look something like this. 
Isn't it pretty? You can tape it at the end, use super glue or use blue tack to keep it in place. If you like, you could even keep the satay stick there! Just loosen your grip on the rose before you tape firmly on the satay stick. Well, that is all for today's little post! Hope you enjoyed reading!
