Altered Faux Roses



I thought these turned out beautiful, and they were soooo simple! I just cut about 6 petal shaped pieces from vintage paper items, inked the edges and then glued them in place. Then, I tipped the edges of the rose petals and covered the plastic sepals with glitter. These are so pretty and would be gorgeous in a bouquet, if left on their stems.

Very gorgeous! Does the paper have to be pretty stiff? Or can you use tissue paper too? I'll have to try these sometime.
