If you haven’t already, learn how to make the rose heads, in the tutorial HERE.
Tacky Glue (or E-6000 but that is overkill)
Cardstock Scrapbook paper
Turn your roses over and snip off the middle flap.
Squeeze a fair amount of hot glue into the back center of the rose.
Then insert one stick into it.
Next fold your scrapbook paper in half.
Cut out a leaf shape with the stem landing on the fold.
Bend the stem down slightly.
Next make a crease along the length of your leaf.
Put a small dollop (I just love that word) in the middle of the two leaves to secure them together.
Next glue the stem of your leaf to the stick. I used hot glue, but half my leaves fell off. Therefore, I recommend using a tacky glue instead.
