Paper Roses

I saw some really pretty upcycled books made into paper roses on a Christmas tree and thought, I gotta figure out how to make them!



I did some research and found this lovely tutorial here:

So I found some watercolor paper in my craft stash to test this idea out. I had to go to the store and get a glue gun because I didn’t have one. I am thrilled with the results and I am going to look for old books that are destined for the trash because of age or damage. I am so excited to make several of these for festive decorations!  I think I will glue some string or twine on it for a hanger.  Love!

Be Creative!
