    We’ve Run the Numbers

    Trace the pattern onto your favourite colour Post-it® Notes and cut them out. Trace 40 petals for the large rose, 35 petals for the medium, and 30 for the small. On the leaf-coloured paper, trace 2-3 leaves per flower.

    Pro tip: Position the paper so the V shape of the petal sits on the sticky part of the Post-it® Note. This will be helpful later!

    Twirl

    Wrap the petals around a pencil (or roll them with your fingers) so they all curl cynlindrically.

    Petal Wrap

    Take a 6-10 inch wire, and wrap a petal around it (V side down), tight enough so that the wire doesn’t show. Secure the petal with hot glue.

    Petal Harder

    Take another petal and wrap it a little looser than the first one around the stem (again, V side down). Secure with hot glue. Keep adding petals! 
    Pro tip: Move downward and distribute evenly around the rose when adding petals.

    Leaf It

    Once your blossom is set, glue or tape the leaf cutouts onto the blossom stem. You can give them a natural curl by wrapping them around a pencil.

    Stem It

    Finish up by wrapping the wire with Scotch® Masking Tape first then covering it with green floral tape. Wrap carefully around the leaves!

                                    Clap. Clap. Clap. That is truly a magnificent rose.
