hybrid hotness | paper roses

I have wanted to make paper roses like these for the longest time, and even promised my sister one made out of a map.

With the help of the Rose In Bloom Template by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs and beautiful papers from the Dream Collab Kit, which is a newsletter freebie, by the Pixels and Co designers it was so quick and easy to whip these beauties up.

After printing, I used Matte Epson Presentation Paper, it literally is just a cut, twirl, and glue affair. I think it took me about half an hour to make these three roses.

Kelleigh has a tutorial on her blog on how to put them together, and it is easy to follow along and recreating the roses will be a breeze.
