Make your own mini roses

We have Easter Holliday here in Sweden right now. All the kids are home from school and they are with friends all day long.They sleep ower and so on so there is not that mutch time for the mother in the house to just sit down and make some scrapbooking...giggle...

But today I had to work a little bit for Kristinas and when I was finish with that I just thought that I should try to make my own mini roses.Just like the ones I always buy.
I saw on Youtube a video where they did handmade roses that we always buy so I thought I try to do my own...
HERE is the video if you would like to se it.
Sometimes it can be hard to find, or if I don´t have the colour home that I need.Then,I MAKE MY OWN!

I will show you how I made it...
Aren´t they cute?? Just like the one I use to buy, but with a little bit different paper...
I simply used left ower cardstock pieces...
This is what I need, mini retro flower punch, glue and cardstock...
I cut out 4 of the colour I want on the rose and one in grean who should be the leaf....
On one of the pink ones I cut of two of the leafs....
Then I fold the leafs in the middle , as in the picture, and then squeeze them together...
I put some glue on the end of the flower leaf...
..and put it together...I hold it together untill the glue has dryed.
With the next two pink flowers, i fold all the leafs on the flowers in the middle and put some glue in the middle of the flower...
And simply put it together.With all of them as I put them together i sqeeze them together and shape them untill I´m happy with the result....
You can se on the picture how I build the flower...
With the last pink flover i don´t fold the leafs in the middle, I just fold the leafs up a little bit so it wont be so flat.And then put it togehter wirh some glue in the middle...
I do the same with the green flower and then put it together so the green flower will become the grean leaf on the roses.
Tada!!! A finished little minirose. It´s about 1-1,5 cm wide.
Hope you liked it!!
Thanks for stoping by.
Hugs Malin
