Book Page Roses



Recently a bride-to-be contacted me through Etsy to ask if I could create a bridal bouquet, boutonniers, bride's maid bouquets and flower girl pins for a geek-chic wedding. She is getting her PhD in Literature and does not like the normal frilly flowers.



To make these roses I used the same concept as I would to make a crepe paper rose with individual petals. Cutting out center petals and heart shaped larger petals for the outer rose.
I curl each side of the petal and wrap them around a floral wire or pipe cleaner and wrap them with floral tape

The result is a lucsious rose head that measures about 3.5 inches across on a stem of about 7 inches long.
