Monday - Making a Rose


We all want to give gifts that last and roses are beautiful but their beauty fades fairly quick. So, why not make a rose that will last a while?

All you need to do is have a little patience and a good eye. I tried to make one but my son asked me if I had my glasses on while I was cutting my pieces - needless to say, I gave up. But here's my son making a Valentine's present.

Oh, wow. That does look complicated, but how beautiful it turned out! How long did that take to make?!

Thanks gals. It's not hard to do, if you want to spend the time to make it look nice. It took a couple hours for Jake to cut out the pieces and then assemble them. I tried to do one but didn't want to spend the time on the intricate cutting :( Mine didn't turn out as nice as Jake's.
