Can't afford roses at Valentine's prices? Take a bit of time to make these miniature roses from paper to charm someone for Valentine's Day. These roses last forever (with care), don't need watering, and you can have them in any color you want. Make yourself one, or an entire bouquet.
The roses use a heart shaped paper punch for their petals, and take a bit of patience to make. If you are careful and look at real roses, or photos of real roses, you shouldn't have any trouble making a spectacular bouquet. Make them in scale sizes for models as small as 1:48 scale, you can use them to make miniature bouquets , model horse jumps or winners wreaths or to add to easy heart shaped topiary trees for table settings. If an upcoming wedding or party needs a spectacular miniature decoration, these may be just the thing
