A Tutorial for Rolled Paper Roses

I was playing around with some of my scraps from the April kit from Scraptacular this weekend and created this tutorial for you on how to create Rolled Paper Roses with Glimmer Mist!

You will need just a few things.. A length of paper (mine was 1 1/2" x 12"), a small square or circle of paper, some quick dry liquid adhesive like Zip Dry, and of course the Glimmer Mist.
To start, mist your length of paper liberally with the Glimmer Mist. The paper will curl once it is wet. That's OK!

Fold the wet paper in half lengthwise. Sure, it is a little messy on the fingers, but you are washable! :)

Add a generous dollop of adhesive to the square or circle paper.

Twist one end of the long damp strip and smoosh it in the glue.

Twirl and twist the paper around and around and spiral it about while gluing it in that adhesive.


Add adhesive as need be to hold the flower together. Remember, a little goes a long way!

Once the strip has been completed, trim away the excess of the mounting paper if need be. I had to trim away the green corners seen below.

I decided that I wanted some leaves on my Rose so I freehand cut a couple from another scrap.

Glue your leaves in place as desired and there you have a Rose!

I decided to embellish my Rose with a few vintage pearls.

Now what to do with the Rose....

Create a card!
Hope that you enjoyed this! Have a great day!
