Always Give Her Roses

©Michele Emerson-Roberts  2015


Roses are one of the most beloved flowers in the world. They are not always available to give as a bouquet, but can always be created in any color you want as a paper casting. This little box is perfect for a gift for any occasion. I think it will make a great jewelry container for one of my sisters who loves roses!

 

Supplies:

  • Any of the Arnold Grummer paper making kits
  • CP Nature’s Miniatures Rose stem (or mold of your choice)
  • Scraps of white paper (think junk mail)
  • Blender, sponges & soft towels
  • Microwave, heat gun or sunny window
  • Scissors, BowEasy™
  • ColorBox™ Stylus  handle & tips, and light pink and light green Chalk ink pads
  • Beacon QuickGrip™ adhesive
  • 3 ¼” round container
  • 9” of pale green ½’ wide organdy ribbon.

Instruction:

  1. Follow the instructions found in any of the AG paper making kits or books to create white slurry.
  2. Create one or more rose stem casting. 
  3. When the rose casting is dry, use the Stylus handle and tip to apply light pink Chalk ink to the rose and the edge of the casting.
  4. Clean the tip, then apply light green chalk ink to the stem and leaves of the casting.
  5. Use the BowEasy™ to tie a tiny box.
  6. Attach the rose casting to the top of the round box and the bow to the lower area of the casting with QuickGrip™ adhesive.
