How I Impress Girls

Nothing beats a hand made gift to your special someone. It shows your sincerity because you put effort into it rather than just buy from the store. In this post, I am making a Bouquet of Thirty Three Roses.

1

This is my materials. Creep papers. For the flower part, I get rough creep and for the stem, fine creep. We also need steel string. For the rough creep paper, I cut a width of one and one quarter inch. For the fine creep paper, I cut one inch by eighteen inch. For the stem, I use eleven to twelve inch. You can experiment with the measurements.

2

For the wrapping, I used fancy wrapper, tissue wrapper and fancy ribbon. All of these just to make a bouquet of flower. Quite cheap.

3

My tools of the day, Pliers, cutter and ruler. No glue, no tape which I like it. Some would prefer scissors rather than cutter.

4

First of all, put the steel on the rough creep paper like shown.

5

Roll in.

6

Fold the roller part into half to secure the roll.

7

Tilt the loose edge of the paper and fold the paper back on the line shown.

8

Roll the stem inward.

9

This is what I get.

10

Keep folding and rolling.

11

Folding and rolling.

12

Folding and rolling.

13

Until the edge. Keep one to one and one half inch left.

14

Roll the left over around the stem

15

Keep rolling.

16

Until you get this.

17

Make a knot as shown to secure the rose with the help of the pliers.

18

Another finish rose.

19

Take the soft creep paper to wrap around the bottom part.

20

Make an initial three rounds.

21

And keep going down at forty five degree.

22

Keep going until the stem is covered with green paper.

23

Then tighten the whole stem. Keep twisting.

24

Secure with a knot like step 17.

25

Cut off the excess with the pliers.

26

Some examples.

27

Close view.

28

Getting more and more.

29

After doing this, two albums has already gone.

30

At last, secure with with the steel string.

31

Taa-daa.

32

Lastly, wrap with the wrappers and tie it with a ribbon. It is ready to go. Isn't that lovely? And it only costs me less than RM 20 and the expensive part is the wrappers, not the flowers. On Valentine's Day, the whole thing would actually costs RM 330.

So, what are you still waiting? Make your girl a gift of rose bouquet today. LoL. For more guide, go to this link.
