Make a spiral rose easily

In this video Jennie shows us how to make a perfect spiral paper rose. All you need for this is a piece of 6X6 inches of paper, scissors, some glue and, if you really want to be creative, some ink. For starters you're going to need a 6X6 inch piece of card stock. Jennie chose a double-sided card stock because she thinks it will look more interesting but you can also use a plain piece of paper. The first step in creating your rose is making a spiral patterned cut alongside the paper. The ideal width of the cut is about an inch. You don't need to worry about the spiral pattern; it's not necessary to cut a perfect spiral shape. After cutting the spiral shape you proceed to cutting a scallop edge on it. The edges shoul be about 1 inch apart.Again, they don't need to be even, the more uneven the better. Take the end of the new shaped figure and roll it alongside its length. As you keep rolling it, it's important to keep it flat alongside its straight edge, not the scallop side. As you progress in rolling the paper you will see that it takes the shape of a rose. After you finished rolling it keep the rose tight between your fingertips for a few seconds and then let go. You will see how the paper takes the shape of a rose. To make the flower stay together you add some glue in its centre. The glue will eventually reach the bottom of the paper and at this point you will hold the bottom tight against the petals so that the flower holds together. After this you form some creasings on the petals by bending them back with your fingers or by pressing them gentle on the table. For the most creative ones, before rolling up the paper you could ink the edges with an ink pad. This will give the rose a special look. Also, you could try doing the scallop edge free-handed.This will also add to your flower a pretty and interesting look.
