Making this paper rose for the Contemporary Animal Print tablescape was fun and very quick. As I was making them, I knew that they can be used in various ways. I did see a collection of them made into a beautiful wall wreath and from a distance you wouldn't even know that it was made of paper. The Pinterest pinner which inspired me to give this a try used paper maps to make the roses. I wanted a less colorful rose, so I choose to go with music sheets. The music sheets were purchased as a book at a resale shop for twenty-five cents. I think the older the sheet music, the better since the pages become brown with age and it adds a more vintage look. This simple and inexpensive project easily qualifies to be posted under my category, Frugal Frittering. Give it a try, it is a lot of fun.
Although there are many paper roses and their instructions out there on the internet, here is the direct link that I found on Pinterest to the instructions that I used on how to make this charming paper rose:
