Below you will find steps to make a rosebud.
This is a very easy craft to do and you can make several in an afternoon.
These make great gifts for all ages!




Materials:


  • Scrap material such as felt, satin, cotton, etc., in various colors
  • Floral wire or bamboo for stems
  • Floral tape
  • Either purchased leaves or green felt to make your own leaves
  • Cotton Balls
  • Thread to match material
  • Sewing needle
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure or cutting board with measurements



  • Instructions:

    Rosebuds:

    4x4 First, cut your material into 4" squares.

    cotton ball on square Shape one cotton ball into the form of a rose bud (use your imagination of what you picture a rose bud to look like, make it fun!) Next, put the shaped cotton ball into the cut square, almost to the center.

    triangle fold Now make a triangle with the fabric by taking one corner and matching it with the opposite corner.

    Fold to left side Next, take one side and fold it over to the other side, slightly off. Do not make it go evenly across. This is what forms the buds.

    Fold to right side Then take the other side and fold it across in the opposite direction as the first.

    Twist and pinch to sew Sewing base Next, twist and pinch together. Then you will sew the bottom together so that it looks like a bottom of the rose bud. You may have to shape it at this time.

    Wrapping with floral tape Next, insert floral wire or bamboo for stems. Use the floral tape and start at the upper part of the base of the rose bud and wrap the floral tape all the way down the stem.

    Attaching leaves with floral tape NOTE: If you are adding leaves to your stem, you will put them in the place where you want them to be and as you are wrapping with the floral tape you will include the leaves also.
