Since Christmas is AGAIN just around the corner, here is a great idea to start with.
You will need:
– paper (Any kind of paper will do)
Turn your paper counter clockwise so the bottom fold is back at the bottom. Fold the left and right sides inward toward your middle crease, so you now have four even folds.
Glue the edge of the paper opposite the side with the .5″ fold.
Re-fold that bottom 2″ fold so you have a nice, firm crease. I ran this one along the edge of a desk. Then unfold so you have a square tube.
Pinch the ends shut. It should bend easily where you made your 2″ crease.
Fold down, glue where necessary. Turn the bag upright and press the bottom flat from the inside to make sure the bottom lays flat.
This can be finished in one of two ways. I prefer to fold the inside rim down and make handles, but you can also fold the top down and tie it shut. You’re done!
Accessory to attach it to
According the tutorial we need two pieces of ric rac at 21 inches. The longer and wider the ric rac is, the taller the flower will be.
Now “braid” the two pieces of Ric Rac together.
Take the end and curl the Ric Rac in.
Continue rolling the Ric Rac. You can put a little hot glue on the sides as you are rolling it.
When you like the size of your rose, you can stop rolling. Put a little glue where you want to end the Ric Rac. Now put some glue on the under side of the rose.
Bring the Ric Rac under the rose and adhere it to the glue. If you have some excess Ric Rac, this is where you will cut it off. Then glue the tails securely under the rose.
To make some petals coming out, pull the edges of the Ric Rac down. Keep pulling the Ric Rac edges down until you like how it looks.
Now you can glue it on a hairpin, a ring-base or a pendant base – whatever you think would look great with a rose on it. 🙂
