Thank you for the pictures in the directions of how to make these newspaper roses. I always get a better end product when I have photos or a video to look at. These are just stunning and I love the black and white picture of the roses around the picture frame. I did not think of making these in varying sizes until I saw that.

Hard to believe these are made from newspaper. One good purpose for these little beauties would be to use on the table as a centerpiece or tied to the back of chairs for a garden wedding. If the guest would like to snatch as party favors it would be great but you would not hate if some fell into the recycle bin at the end.

What a fantastic craft to do with your kids or students. It is really economical and uses supplies we usually have on hand like old newspapers and tubes or bottles of acrylic paints. These are so versatile. You could mount these flowers on sheets of paper or canvas and paint in stems, leaves and other foliage to create whole rose gardens.
