How To Make Paper Roses.... A Tutorial

Happy New Year!
I am back from my little blogging break!!
We had a great holiday and long visit with my parents in sunny Florida.
I thought I would jump back in with a fun tutorial to start the New Year!
 If you are like me, it feels like your house is a bit bare after the holiday decor goes down.  Maybe you have a few spots to fill and are looking for something a bit different.
 Fill your vignettes with some fun paper roses!  Let me show you how....

All you will need is....
An old book you don't mind cutting up...
A bit of wire...
Some glue or staples....
and a scalloped craft scissors or patience to make little scallops.
 I love simple crafts that don't cost anything!
 The hardest part for me is cutting circles... but don't worry, they get all wrinkled up... so don't fret if they are not perfect!
 Glue or staple the three layers together then crinkle them up... then if you want to, tape on the wire to make a stem.
Or you can just place them around the house.
I like mine with a bit of greenery and some cottage trinkets!

Have fun decorating and come back soon.... I have so much more to share!
