Valentines Day Rose Pencils

Hey everyone its been a while since ive posted anything well today is different than the regular beauty posts i do, besides nails & makeup i love doing crafts! so today is something i made for my daughters girl scout troop a cute Valentine goodie, if you want to see how i made it keep scrolling =]   

What you will need: 
Crepe  Paper
Ribbon (optional)
Valentine cards (optional)

The crepe streamer i had left over from a baby shower i used that instead but you can also use sheets of crepe paper also.

Next you want to fold the crepe paper with lots of layers
then you want to cut two diferente petal shapes oen bigger than the other.

next you want to take one petal & wrap it around the pencil this is the main petal of the rose makign it the center.

Next you want to add the petals its always an odd number so the first layer will be 3, then 5, then 7. then you keep going if you want a fuller flower.

After adding your petals you want to fold them so they look more like a real rose so i took another pencil & gently rolled it.

this is what your rose will look like!

And here is all the pencil roses together! i used a hole puncher on the valentine card put a ribbon through it & tied it to the rose.  & thats it!!!!!   enjoy making these i had fun!!!
