4. To make the spiral roses:

a. Take one of the 2” circles (Royal Orchid, Angel Orchid, Tangerine and Quartz) and a pair of scissors. Starting at the outside edge of the circle begin cutting into the circle forming a spiral shape as you cut. As you get closer to the center make sure to stop leaving a circle shape, as this will be the base you glue the spiral shape onto.

b. Take a small skewer , quilling tool, or just use your fingers and begin rolling the paper (from the outside edge inward). Keep the spiral shape fairly snug as

you roll towards the center. When you reach the center release the spiral shape and it will relax into shape.

c. Use a hot glue gun, add some glue onto the center part of the flower and then adhere the spiral shape right onto that. Hold until set.

d. Sand the edges of the Royal Orchid and Tangerine spiral roses lightly to give a distressed look.

5. Begin to adhere the flowers to the wreath by assembling the larger flowers together first.

a. Adhere the Stiletto flower to the Sunrise Orchid embossed flower. Then adhere the Royal Orchid spiral rose to the center. (repeat 4 times)

b. Adhere the Quartz flower to the center of Tangerine embossed flower. Adhere the Tangerine spiral rose to the center (repeat 4 times)

c. Adhere a Angel Orchid spiral rose to the center of a Vanilla Cream Aunt Grace flower. Gently bend the petals of the flower. Then adhere to another Vanilla Cream Aunt Grace flower using pop/foam dots.

d. Now you can adhere these larger flowers to the wreath spacing them out accordingly.

e. Then adhere the spiral roses in between making trailing clusters as you adhere them.

What a colorful way to gussy up a porch or a room in your home that has seemed dreary. I love the color choices, they pair very well together. I think this would make a wonderful gift for someone who had a baby or maybe a couple that just got married. It would be nice to have something of their own to welcome guests that come to wish them well.
