Default Small roses made with Nesties scalloped ovals

This little rose embellishment is 5/8" in diameter. It's done in white cardstock and colored with Copic markers, although other coloring methods would also work. To get a better idea of the scale, see this finished card in my gallery: Easter Lamb & Chick card. This rose was inspired by the lovely punched flowers in kittie747's gallery.

Supplies:

Nestabilities scalloped oval die, McGill Perfect Petals punch, Copics or other markers, bamboo skewer, large ball stylus, mouse pad, Diamond Glaze or Glossy Accents, lightweight white cardstock (I used 60 lb Hammermill Color Copy Cover.)

Directions:

1. Die cut a mid-sized scalloped oval, approximately 2 x 2.5". Trim a narrow strip off one end that has six scallops. Punch three 3/8" flowers for the base petals. Color both fronts and backs of the cardstock pieces, making one end of the scalloped strip darker and fading to lighter. The coloring doesn't need to be exact. In fact, it's prettier with some variations.

2. For the leaves, punch a 5-petal pointed flower. Snip off two petals, leaving a set of three leaves in one piece. Color with Copics, drawing vein lines if desired.

3. Shape all the pieces by pressing from the wrong side with a large ball stylus on a soft surface, such as a mouse pad.

4. Glue the rose's three base petals together in a triangle, overlapping them in the center. Starting at the darkest end, roll the scalloped strip around something thin, such as a bamboo skewer. Remove skewer and glue the rolled center to the base petals. After glue has dried, curl back the top edges of a few petals.

5. Glue leaves to card, then glue rose on top of leaves.

Thanks for the nice comments.

I've added step-by-step photos to the start of this thread. (Love the idea that it's possible to edit posts in this forum.) If you'd rather see the photos all on one page, in order with the directions, they are in this blog post: Rolled Baby Roses, Step-by-Step.

I might add....since one is using only the ends of the oval I would be prone to just cut the two ends themselves instead of wasting all the paper in between.

This is wonderful! How smart you are to use something that you have on hand and not HAVE to purchase the dies to make these! AND you are saving money - so you can go out and buy more stuff.
Way to go Judi!

I would LOVE to add those to the wedding announcements I'm about to start, but she needs 220! That *might* raise the price just a tad! I will definitely make some for my own use. Thanks!

I finally tried this and struggled, but in the end it actually looked like a rose. I found holding the end of the scallop with a pair of skinny tweezers worked best. Might try my quilling tool next.

Hi, Leslie -- I bet your quilling tool would work. In another thread we were talking about a hybrid petal roller tool. I've just ordered one and will try it. It has two ends, one with a ball for shaping the petals and the other with a slot for rolling the center.

I also have read that a hot glue gun works well for rolled flowers, so that is something else I want to try. The hot glue sets up almost instantly and the rolled center won't uncoil while waiting for a liquid glue to dry.

Ooohhh! I like that combo quilling tool. Must search for a source and some pricing. I just used the rounded top of a Sharpie marker and a knitting needle. I have a stylus from my tole painting days but the points are too tiny. Thanks for the suggestion
