Awhile back I posted about working on a wreath made of paper roses. I had a little bit of free time on my hands and enjoyed making the roses. (See the original post here.) I had some fun with those roses and never got around to posting how I decorated a gift for a friend. I didn't want to post it and have it show up on Facebook before I gave the gift!! So, when going through some of my photos today, I found the picture and decided it was time to post it.
Here's a close up:
These paper flowers were a bit different than the ones in the post. These were created by making a spiral and then gluing the spiral from the outside in to make the rose. I made a few but couldn't imagine making hundreds. That's when I bought the paper punch and decided to make the punched ones rather than the spiral ones. Tutorials are readily available on the web - just search for "rolled paper flowers".
To decorate the bottle, I just tied a bow around the top with a tag and hot glued the flowers on. I apologize if the name of the wine is a bit offensive - sometimes we in the crazy world of high school discipline tend to have a weird sense of humor! Oh and also a need to break one of these puppies open now and then!
