This is a very easy technique for you to create your very own paper roses. Recently, I've created these twisted roses for one of my DT project.
Here are the steps.1) What you need is basically a stapler and a strip of paper. (Tip: A great way to use up any scraps or leftover pattern paper. Use a longer and wider strip of paper for a bigger rose)
2) Twist the strip of paper just like the picture above.
3) Fold the twisted strip of paper in circular. Start by creating a fold in the middle of the rose and then slowly adding layers around it. (Tip: Leave some angles along the circular folding) Secure the end of the strip by stapling it on the bottom of the rose. You could use this twisted rose as it is now or you could take a few steps further.
Here are some easy steps to further detail your twisted rose.
4. I've misted the roses with some distress ink. Just mix some distress ink with water in a mini mister and mist it on the roses. You could also use any other mist you have.
5. Later, I've added some distress stickles on top of it. You could also heat the stickles up with a heating tool to create a melted metallic texture.
This is such a great and easy way to use up some of the scraps that we have lying around instead of throwing it away. Try it!
