Spiral Rose Tutorials--Break Out the Shot Glasses

If you've read my older posts, you might have played along with the spiral rose drinking game. We did shots for every layout that featured a spiral rose. {I did shots of espresso, which only furthered the manic creation of these beauties}. I was wired non-stop for about three months. I just love spiral roses, and I realized I haven't used one in forever.  After deciding to make a new batch, I thought I'd go on the hunt and see what kind of options are out there. Here's to another three months of espresso shots.

Spiral Rose Technique Tutorials

Basic Spiral Roses

This is the basic rolled rose technique. These work best with double-sided paper or cardstock, but any type of paper will work. Try anything you come across and see what happens: book pages, waxed paper, burlap, felt, glitter paper...the list goes on. If you can cut it and it holds its shape, you can use it.

This shabby version is so pretty. These centers really give the basic flower technique a fresh lift.

I like the alternate one on the right, which gives the flower more of an actual rose look. Using them together make them look like roses in the process of blooming.

"Push-Pin" Spiral RosesSpiral Rose Technique Tutorials

This tutorial was created for the purpose of creating these beautiful push-pins, but the technique works just as well to create scrapbook or cardmaking embellishments. The hand-cut leaves are a nice touch. This version is nice if you have single-sided paper, since you fold over the edges and won't see the underside.

This rolled rose pattern looks much less abstract than most of the others, but still uses the same basic spiral rolling technique. 

Felt Rosettes

If you're looking for some added texture, try it in felt. These would work particularly great for winter layouts, where flowers can seem out of place. But the texture of these brings to mind warm woolen mittens. Here's a video shows alternate version of the felt rolled roses. 

Silhouette Cameo Roses

Silhouette Americana

This one uses a cutting machine to cut the roses, but you could easily adapt the pattern and hand cut the shapes to create this style. Don't have a Cameo? I know...I want one too. {Do you read my blog, Honey? Hint, hint!}
