It’s almost Mother’s Day!
Every year I have a habit of making cards for Mother’s day and this year is no exception of course. This year, I wanted to make paper roses on a card. I saw some pretty simple methods of making roses so I gave it a try.
- Colored and White Cardstock Paper
- Double sided tape or glue
I started with 3 different colors of paper: pink, beige, and white. With the pink and beige, I cut them into different sized squares and drew in swirls in them.
Then I cut out the swirls and started rolling it from the ends until I run out of paper. At the ends, I taped it down with double sided tape. Cutting it right along the lines of the swirls creates a very neat/organized rose (shown on the right). If you cut it in a swirl like form along the lines, you get a more disordered rose (shown on the left).
I made 8 of them, taped it onto the middle of a folded sheet of paper, and created a heart shape out of the 8 paper roses.
I’ll probably be giving this to her on the day of Mother’s day and then take them out to lunch.
What are your plans for mother’s day?
