Roses are one of my favorite flowers and there’s something truly beautiful about wearing them in your hair whether they’re real or fake. When you make your own rose clip, you can customize it in any color you wish – red, blue, yellow, purple – so you can have one in every color or pattern possible. It may look complicated, but it’s pretty easy to do, especially once you get the hang of it.
What you’ll need:
Step 1. Cut out a small square from the red cardstock, then trim it so it creates four adjacent petals connected by a tiny square in the center.
Step 2. Cut a small triangle from the red cardstock, then trim it so it forms three petals in the shape of a triangle that are connected by a tiny circle in the center.
Step 3. Bend both pieces so the petals face upward, then use scissors to carefully curl the ends.
Step 5. Glue the second piece inside the first, then the center piece directly in the middle.
Step 6. Make several singular petals from the red tissue paper. Use your fingers to slightly bend the edges.
Step 7. Dip the very tips of the tissue paper petals in Mod Podge, then carefully slide them in the flower to fill it out.
Step 8. After the flower dries, lightly pinch it in between your thumb and pointer finger to expand the flower a bit.
Step 9. Glue it to the edge of your clip, then let it dry thoroughly before moving it.
