More Handmade Roses

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I made these roses a while ago.  I really like them!  They are so much prettier than the last roses that I made.  I guessed because they looked so much like Prima flowers.  I made these flowers from scrap papers.  What an awesome way to get rid off some of those scraps!

I used Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  There are four flowers on the die but I used the two smallest flowers to make these roses.  I used the same tutorial that you can fine it here.

This next rose I used Stampin' Up! Fancy Flower Extra-Large punch.  It is not as nice as the Tim Holtz die because of the edges.  Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die had an uneven edge that look more like the rose petals. But it still is a nice flower.

Here are a few more hand made flowers:

This one was made from sewing the ribbon on one side and pull it together. 

 These two were called the lollipop flowers.  They were just different size of circles.  Scrunched them up and stacked them together.
 These last two were made the same way as the lollipop flower except I used the Pony nesti dies.

Thanks for looking.  Have a wonderful weekend!

All of them are excellent but the roses are just beautiful, especially the ones in the first picture. Who would guess that those were actually made from paper.
