Such a Pretty Mess: Flower Tutorial ~ Making Water Distressed Cardstock Blooms!!

Rolled Paper Flower Tutorial Cut a circle out of paper. I used cardstock. (My circle was about 3 1/2" across, and it made a rose about 1 1/2" across.) Cut out the circle, making a wavy edge as you go.Now take your scissors and start cutting a spiral wavy line from the outside of the circle to the middle. When you are finished, cut off the point at the beginning. Keep wrapping the paper around in a circle. I like to wrap it tight and then let it uncurl later.
