I found a step by step pictorial on how to make these so everyone can see the steps and items needed to make them. (thank-you to the blogsite Imagine, Create, Inspire for this bloom idea)

TO MAKE THESE ROSES YOU WILL NEED:

~ A 6 petal punch (any size, the size of your rose will vary by the size of the punch you use, ....for this rose I used a punch that has a punched image about the size of a quarter)

~ Scissors

~ Glue

~ Ink

~ Cardstock

~ toothpick or wooden skewer

Step 3

Glue the petals of each of the larger pieces as shown below. Bring right petal over glued petal to make 3 cones (One cone will have 5 petals, one will have 4 petals and the other 3 petals)....

Step 4

Below is a picture of one of the glued flower cones. Using your toothpick or skewer curl each of the petals back.....




Step 5

To make the centers with the left over bits of petals follow these steps.....

For the 2 petal bloom, curl the left petal back, and curl the right side inward. Wrap the curled petal around the inward curled petal (see photo below this one for further photo help)

For the single petal piece just curl both edges inward, pop a little glue at the bottom and stick it inside the swirl of the 2 petal piece. I snip a tiny bit off the bottom of this piece, add glue and put in the center of the bloom. Picture #4 is of the finished bloom.
