Spiral Roses: A Tutorial

I was searching for botanical pics on the internet, when I stumbled on a blog article with these roses (dozi design). She had been inspired by a magazine article. I practiced making some of these and really like them. So I thought I'd share them with you:


Step 1:
On a square piece of cardstock (mine was 4x4) draw a spiral.

Step 2:
Working along the line, cut out the spiral.

Step 3:
On the outer edge, roll toward the center.
Keep rolling until you reach the center.

Step 4:
To keep it from unrolling, I tacked mine with a little bit of glue at the end.

These would look charming on a parcel. Some leaves and or tiny flowers would work with these too. With some practice, these are easy (and quick) to do without the pencil lines as a guide.
