Paper Roses!

These paper roses are so beautiful, and really don't look that hard! I found these tutorials while just looking through some blogs the other day. While I was browsing Such a Pretty Mess , I found these great roses. Gabrielle found the tutorial on Helen Croft's blog. Helen Borrowed the idea from Nancy Burke. They all have slightly different takes on the flower, and slightly different tutorials, so check out one of them, or all of them! I am going to make a few of them, and if it goes well, I'll post the pics here. (Thank you ladies, for the awesome tutorials and pics!) Happy crafting!
