Sheet Music Roses Tutorial

My tutorial for this week is....

Sheet Music Paper Roses!


Here's what you need: 

Supplies:
-Sheet Music
-Silhouette (optional, or just scissors)
-Pen
-Tea, kettle, flat pan
-Hot Glue
-Glass bottle
-Spray Paint
-Fabric & cord scraps

Steps:
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!!



Prettyyyyy. I'll be linking up to all the link parties listed in my header!

  57. These are so pretty, and the painted glass jar is a great idea for a vase too.

    ReplyDelete
  58. For those of us new to this sort of thing, could you please explain a "Silouette" although I'm assuming it is some sort of plastic template?
    And pretty please, who makes them? I love this idea, and transferable to other aterials, too!

    ReplyDelete
  59. your tutorial is SUPER cute, but it seems kind of vague... you should have a template link or something for the rose shape, i dont think alot of people will know right off the top of their head what kind of shape to cut out for them. i dont mean this to be rude, by the way, i really do like it, i just thought i should tell you what i thought. :D

  60. Such a great idea!!! Very cute!!
