These little flowers are quick and easy to make.  Use them decorate packages.  You can use any paper in any color.  The small white rose in the picture was made with tissue paper, the larger white rose with regular paper, and the red rose with cardstock.

Step 3.  Roll the paper into a medium-tight roll.  Secure loosely with tape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4.   Cut out two green leaves.  Wrap them around the base of the rosebud and secure them with tape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5.  If desired, make the rosebud more secure by firmly twisting  the smaller  (stem) end and securing it with tape or wire.
