Making a cute little rolled paper rose is actually very easy and fun. It only takes a few minutes after you learn to make one so you can sit down and make quite a few for a project. They are not as hard as you might have thought if you just follow these simple steps!
The trickiest part of the rose is the very beginning. You have to take and start rolling the rose but the first two rolls are more like folds to get it started. So fold it over a couple times around itself and then start rolling the rest of the rose. You just keep bring the paper around itself with your fingers until you get to that last little platform we mentioned. When you get there just turn that little platform to the bottom of your rose to sit on while still holding the rose so it doesn't unravel.
Now if you want to loosen your rose up some gently lift up your finger a little at a time and the rose will start to open or spin some you decide how far you want it opened. Its just a matter of preference and how big you want the rose to turn out.
When your finished it should look similar to this. The nice thing is they all tun out slightly different and after you make a few you will feel like a pro. If you enjoy making these you can do a whole project like the picture below of a topiary I made from all rolled rose for a Christmas gift.
