A long time ago I had made a sign using these Paper Plate Roses to embellish it. I forgot to ever do the tutorial for it but here is...........the long overdue tutorial!
Do you remember the sign? Probably not since it's been such a long time.
I love the roses on it. I don't know how I forgot the tutorial on them. Haha sorry I'm a little spacey!!!
Here is what you will need to make them (not everything is pictured)
Cheap Paper Plates
Homemade Alcohol Inks or a Spray Bottle with Water
Using extrememe caution your working with fire and paper! Carefully burn the edges of the paper plate. I do this by my sink so I can hit it with water when it starts to burn to much. Then try to knock off some of the burnt edges so they aren't falling off all over while your making your rose.
Cut out the middle of the plate, cutting a slit to the center then cutting out the middle. Place the piece of the plate your using on top of paper towels spritz well with your Homemade Alcohol Ink or water. Blot off excess with a paper towel.
Begin rolling your plate holding the burnt edge with one hand and rolling tightly the unburnt edge with your other hand. Be careful not to tear your rose to much but a little tearing ad's to it's beauty!
Continue rolling until you have rolled the entire plate.
Now you have a pretty rose!
Clip the back with a clothespin while it dries. Or don't it will still hold it's shape pretty nicely but you will end up with a nice open rose.
Make some in all different colors leave some white, it's all up to you. Make a bunch or make just one. You can use them for anything you can think of a bouquet, gift topper, on a card. If you do make one though I would love to see it.
***Make at your own risk*** but please please please use extreme caution when burning the edges of the plate I really don't want anyone getting burnt making these!
