Paper Roses ~

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

I always feel like I should be doing something while watching TV so last night I decided to get out some tissue paper and try my hand at making paper roses. I just cut strips of tissue paper, gathered one edge and started rolling...I love how they turned out. I did get better the more I made. First I was trying to keep the tissue paper all straight on the edges and not let it bend, but the more I made I found if you let it curl over here and there like it wants to do then they look more realistic...
I truly hope you have a beautiful day....blessings ~

Your roses are so pretty, how did you gather the edges? I always enjoy my visit.
