TUTORIAL ~ Easy Dollar Store Rose Petal Roses/Flowers

Hey Everyone!
Just popping in on a stormy early evening
here in Michigan
to share a simple tutorial that I put together.
I know there are soooo many roses tutorials
out there, but I didn't see one like this.
So, as I was making these today
for my crafting use,
  it dawned on me to share this
 simple way to make these
sweet roses with my friends.
bag of rose petals
(I purchased mine a few years ago at
Dollar Tree)
Low Temp Glue Gun
Small piece of felt
Center piece
In the bag are white and pink petals that I stained
using coffee.  They give a vintage look.

First, cut a square or circle about 1.5 inches of felt.
Add a dab a glue around the center as shown.

Then, making sure the petals all face the same way.
Place them overlapping all around to create your base.  I used
5 petals to start with on the bottom/base.

Below, you see petals all added . 
You may need to
dabble a little bit of glue for added adherence.

Now start layering.  I added more glue to the center
and layered around with the petals
going around about 2 to 3 more times

another layer...

the last layer should have 3 petals

I then glued 3 gauzy petals on top of the other layers
(you do not have to do this, I just had them and like
how it looks)

The next pictures show how I finish the center.

Cut 3 petals at the point like below

then cut a slit in the center of each petal

glue the left side

fold over the right side to glue

glue back side overlapping all 3

this then creates a place for your center piece.
you can use buttons, pearls, earrings...

See? Simple and Pretty!

There you have it!
Let me know if you give this a try!
I am always checking available for
questions or clarification!

Thanks for stopping by!
