Crepe Paper Rose Tutorial

I really loved making the crepe paper peonies back in the summer for my garden house that I wanted to try my hand at some more. This time I decided to make crepe paper roses using the Rico rose stencil, crepe paper and accessories. I made a combination of small and large roses and small and large rose buds in colours to match my Christmas 'Frosted Fairytale Forest' and added gold glitter to the tips of the petals for added sparkle. I love how they turned out and can't wait to start making more!

Everything you need to make the Rico crepe paper flowers is available in the UK from John Lewis.
