DIY: Rosebuds

You might have noticed on top of my purple pineapple – otherwise known as my DIY: Ombre Vase - the little rosebuds.

This DIY was actually really difficult tedious. I did it with my BFF and we were both ready to call it quits.

I took my inspiration from The Idea Room, and as you can see, mine looks nothing like hers! A girl can only dream.

Materials

  1. Tissue paper streamers – I bought mine at dollarama, but they only had ugly colours remaining in the regular sized streamers, so I bought pretty pink colours in small sized streamers. I think this was my downfall. So definitely buy regular sized streamers (regular sized in width – about 2-3 inches).
  2. Glue gun and glue sticks
  3. Styrofoam ball to glue your rosebuds on

Directions

  1. Cut your streamers into 24 inch strips. You can crumple the paper if you want the paper to be softer (optional)
  2. Take one end and begin rolling the strip between your fingers
  3. Every 3-4 inches, twist the paper 180 degrees. Keep rollin’
  4. Now roll, twist, roll twist, etc etc etc etc
  5. Glue your roses onto your styrofoam ball

So, did you get beautiful roses like The Idea Room? Or not-quite bloomed rose buds like me?

  1. Of course, if you really want good mileage for
    your contest, you can also post on message boards in your niche with the signature pointing to
    your contest. Easy registration; anyone can register their child just by sending a SMS,
    which will cost not more than Rs 3. Inviting the entire class
    sounds like a great idea, but a sleepover works best with between five and ten
    girls.

  2. Or, the LLC may decide to make loans to the debtor, which circumvents both charging orders and garnishments.

    One complication of a broadly worded charging
    order, is the “exclusive remedy” benefit (detriment) of the charging order.

    Your piercer should tell you what to expect during healing.
