Everlasting “Be My Valentine Roses”.
Hi everyone, Hope you all busy preparing with “Valentines day” celebration. In this tutorial I am going to explain how to make a beautiful “ever lasting rose bouquet for your love “. I am pretty excited about this tutorial so let’s get started.
Things needed for making everlasting roses are:
- 40 mm(width) Red Polyester silk ribbon (you can pick your favourite colour),
- 40 mm(width) Olive green Polyester silk ribbon,
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks,
- 10 mm Wire flower stems (16),
- Lighter or Candle.
- Most important Lots of love and D.I.Y
Step 1: Lets begin with petals and sepals . Measure and cut 5cm of green ribbon for leaf and 2cm for sepals. Cut both in a leaf shape as shown below.Singe the ribbon with lighter or a candle If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision.
Step 2: make 3 sepals and 1 leaf for each flower.( I made 16 leaves and 48 sepals)
Step 3: Wrap the stem wires with green tape. I made 16 stems for 16 flowers (you may make as many flowers you need)
Step 4: For making petals 6cm length red ribbon.First fold the ribbon just as shown in the following pictures.
Step 5: Hold the angled corner using tweezers and scissors cut a triangle shape.Singe the ribbon with lighter or a candle If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision.
Step 6: Repeat step 5 for the other side of the ribbon .
Step 7:Once you have the ribbon petals formed, we need to get a small curve so the petals are more realistic.
Step 8: Now hold the bottom edges of the ribbon using the tweezers and make little pleat and singe that corner in candle flame so the pleat is not disturbed.
Step 9: You may end up with all the flower petals ready.
Step 10: Take one petal and apply glue on it. now place the stem in middle and roll the petal making sure the stem is wrapped around.
Step 11: Take the second petal repeat step 10 forming a bud.
Step 12:Now apply glue on one corner of the first petal and place the opposite corner on top of the first petal
Step 13: Repeat step 12 for 3 more times.
Step 14: place the bud in one corner and using glue stick the flower by rotating towards the petal circle.
Step 15: You will end up some thing like shown.
Step 16: Now stick one leaf and three sepals around the flower.
Now you may end up having this amazing bouquet which will be for ever…
