Valentine Idea: Handmade Paper Rose Bouquet

Valentine Idea: Handmade Paper Rose Bouquet

Love it or hate it, it's THAT time of year. I generally choose to ignore Valentine's Day because it's so full of mass-produced red, lacy junk and roses shipped from far far away. So I was actually excited to come across a tutorial for paper roses that can give new life to just about any paper you have lying around. Junk into treasure! We can all love that!

Creativeman over at Instructables has created one of the most robust tutorials I've seen. He shows not only step-by-step photos with written instructions, but also added notes to each photo for further clarification.

If you scroll down through the comments, he also describes his process for making stems and leaves for the roses (made out of old book or magazine pages, no less).

Check out the full tutorial at Instructables.
