Sheet Music Roses Tutorial

Saturday, March 26, 2011 | Labels: crafts, Silhoutte, Tutorial
My tutorial for this week is….
Sheet Music Paper Roses!
Here’s what you need:
-Sheet Music
-Silhouette (optional, or just scissors)
-Tea, kettle, flat pan
-Hot Glue
-Glass bottle
-Spray Paint
-Fabric & cord scraps
Step 1: Prepare your sheet music. I wanted my flowers to look more antique, so I dyed the sheet music using tea.  Pour some hot water onto tea bags in a flat pan and let them tea seep for a bit.
 Step 2: Soak your sheet music pages in the tea for a few minutes, and then take them out and let them dry. I laid them out on a cookie sheet while they dried.
Step 3: While the paper is drying, prepare your vase for the flowers. I just spray painted a glass snapple bottle.
Step 4: After the sheet music has dried, load it into your silhouette and cut out the 3D paper rose shape.  Don’t have a silhouette? You can just cut it out using scissors, the shape is not that difficult.
Step 5: Form the roses by rolling the paper cutout tightly around a pencil or pen. I added a dab of hot glue occasionally so they would keep their shape better.
Step 6: I made the stems for the flowers by twisting two pieces of green wire together, and then hot gluing it to the inside of the flower.
Step 7: Add any decorative touches to the flower vase. I just hot-glued a scrap of fabric around it and tied a piece of twine on top.

Don’t mind my crappy spray paint job. This was my first time spray painting. And it was windy. Do a better job for me, k??

Then stick your flowers in the vase, and you are good to go!!
