DIY: Paper Roses

One of the projects the girls at Twilight have me and Ellen working on is re-doing their window display. We’re going to design a couple of displays for the upcoming months and then build as much of them as we can in advance so that they can easily be installed when it’s time. For valentines day we’re making a bunch of wax paper hearts to catch the afternoon sun (yes this is Seattle, but when it is sunny, it’s real sunny and our storefront is pointed right at the sunset) and accompanying them with a couple suitcases full of handmade paper roses. Ellen and I did a couple of days of research looking for the best tutorials on paper rose making, and let me tell you, it was slim pickings. There’s lots of beautiful pictures, but as far as instructions go, one seems to have a choice between paying for good tutorials or struggling through mediocre ones.
