Roll up a paper rose - or a dozen - for your Valentine

See also

No other flower is as synonymous with the expression of love as the rose is. In full bloom or tiny buds, fresh or dried, roses are exquisite. Don't want to plop down an exorbitant amount for a dozen roses this Valentine's Day? Make paper roses instead. They are simple to create and lovely to look at. Extra touch: make them scented by misting lightly with a rose-scented cologne or linen spray. Make one or dozens; they can be used in a variety of ways. Here is an easy to follow tutorial from Dozi Design; she attached a scattered few to bare branches and stood them in vases for a simple yet elegant arrangement.

Have a bunch of those lovely spray roses that start making appearances now? Use them to make pretty rosebud teacups.
