Materials

Instructions

Steps
Step 1
1. Fold paper plate on dotted lines as shown in the image 1 and cut paper on black dots. One side will be cut deeper than the other. Bend each curved edge around a large marker or the handle of a wooden spoon. Lay the first plate, curved edges DOWN.

Step 2
2. Fold and cut three more plates, each a little smaller than the last. Cut the edges evenly, not like the first plate. Save the cut edges! We'll use those later. Use a pencil to curl the petals inward. Keep the leftover edges folded together. Cut off the top and bottom edge.

Step 3
3. Still folded together, fringe the edge. Repeat with two more leftover edges. Press the fringe of ONE leftover edge against a wide marker. Now press the fringes of TWO leftover edges against a pencil. Use the Hacksaw blade to cut holes in the center of each flower.

Step 4
4. Now cut a three- foot length of twine then fold it in half. Make a knot at the folded end. Knot again once or twice. Thread the twine through the flower petals. The knot should be in the center of the flower. Tie and knot the twine at the back of the flower. Pull the twine straight. Knot the end. Cut a medium piece from the fifth plate. Sandwich the twine between the back of the flower and the medium place of the plate. Glue in place. Start rolling up the pencil-curled fringe. Make sure the fringe is pointing outward.
Steps
Step 5
5. Leave it slightly loose in the center so that it will fit over the twine knot. Glue at regular intervals until you reach the end of the first fringe. Glue the end to the second fringe. Keep rolling. Glue third fringe. Place hot glue all over blue areas. Press and hold together until the glue cools. Now offset your petals so that it would look like a full-blown tea rose. Add drops of glue between the petal layers to help keep the petals in place.
