Handmade Roses Tutorial - Foam Roses Type 2

Handmade roses
Dear friends it was so heartwarming to read the wonderful comments on my foam roses tutorial and I was even more touched that many of you commented how difficult it must have been to write a tutorial!!Yes taking pictures for tutorials is time consuming but then I always feel I owe it to my readers to explain how I made something!!
Sharing one more home decor project- a decoupaged plate .
Since making the earlier type of foam roses was so easy I tried making a different variation by giving  a bulbous center to the handmade foam roses. 
Foam roses tutorial
Tried Napkin decoupage for the first time using some gorgeous tissue papers I had won from Unstampabelles. Decoupaged a ceramic plate and added some of my handmade foam roses.

Materials required [same as in Foam roses Type 1]
Foam sheets- thin ones are easier to shape and look better as roses
Glue gun- this is indispensable unless you want to spend hours trying to stick slippery foam!!
Scissors- to cut and shape your petals
Petal template-My foam roses are made from tear drop shaped petals the width of my fingers.
Foam flower tutorial
Die cut some foam flowers and cut them into tear drop petals as explained in my earlier foam roses tutorial
Foam rose tutorial
Or use your fingertip as a template [the upper curve is what you need!] to quickly cut up some tear drop petals!There is no need to cut the petals all uniform as after all its a rose you are making and petals do differ in size and shape!!
Foam rose tutorial
I used on an average 1+ 2+4+ 6= 13 petals to make a foam rose
Foam rose tutorial
To make the bulbous center:Take one petal and roll it from tip to lower part of rounded edge to form a cone as shown above and hot glue it with the pointed tip inside.

Dont worry about glue smears on your inner most petal[as shown above] as its going to be hidden inside another petal!
Apply a streak of glue lengthwise on a petal [as shown above] and below ]and wrap it around your innermost conical petal.
Handmade Rose tutorial
Glue on your 3rd petal in such a way that its rounded end will overlap the pointy tip of the 2nd petal as shown above.The foam rose bud actually stands!

In the next layer I changed the position of the glue to the lower part of the petal as shown above and stuck 4 petals overlapping each other. Add 5- 6 more petals as the outermost layer and you have a gorgeous  handmade foam rose.
Handmade roses tutorial
Make sepals for the roses if you wish as in my earlier foam rose tutorial.I also hand cut some green glitter paper leaves [as in the cala lily tutorial]and  added them to my foam roses
Handmade roses
Made some of the roses stand out on branches made with wire and floral tape as I wanted the little bird to have a lovely 3 dimensional rosy scenery!For a bit of glamour ,added some pearl strings at the base of the foam roses.
Handmade roses tutorial
Even though it was my first time ,I loved the beautiful texture  of the napkin decoupage on the plate.Now on the hunt for more crafts to use up my stash of foam roses!

    Hast du gut auf deine Finger aufgepasst? Mit der Klebepistole kann man sie so leicht verbrennen.
