Tutorial of The Classic Rose

 Hi everyone

As promised here is a tutorial of Sue Wilson's Classic rose. Don't take this literally this just my interpretation. Hope you enjoy!

These are the items you need to make the rose

After cutting out 3 lots, fold or score across the petals, just so that you find the middle of the flower to cut out each portion equally.

The first flower you cut to the centre of the flower, the second flower you cut 1 petal out and from the 3rd you cut 2 petals.

I usually colour them before I cut them, but doing it this way will show you it Really doesn't matter, as you don't see the darker shading when the flower is put together..

Right here goes making the flower. The 6 petals with a cut to the middle,  put some glue on one petal and glue together to make a 5 petal flower,   If you need to keep referring just look at the previous picture. Make the 5 petal into 4 and the 4 petal into 3. so you are left with a 5,4,3 a 2 and a single petal.

I then use the end of my paint brush to roll the petals back, and inwards.

I then roll the single petal to start the middle of the rose

Then roll the double petal

You then place the folded single petal inside the double folded petal, and place aside for a moment.

cut the bottom off  of the 4 petal to allow it to sit in the 5 petal

Move the petals around until they look good to you.

cut the bottom out of the 3 petal

Remember the single and double petals, place them into the 3 petal and cut the bottom off that is hanging out of the 3 petal.

Glue them together and you have your rose. Stil move them around to off set the petals. when you are happy just leave to dry.

I'm sorry, this bit is just me. I like to tweak, Fold back the petals and do a scrunch on my rose. (Totally optional ).

Finally, I hear you say. I added some glue and glittered my rose.

I hope this helps, sorry it's so long.

Big hugs
