Here come the roses

Standard

Too cheapskate to buy flowers

Having spent the morning mumbling over results using the tissue etc hoarded over the years, the decision was to make the majority of the roses from a lightweight(ish) writing paper and use coloured tissues for other blooms and wrapping the metal garden plant support loops for the garlands.

Writing paper – cut and curled petals before gluing to garland.

The blooms will need a little TLC when the pillar goes into place

  1. Oh wow! He’s fantastic, I say ‘he’ because of the dress although there is something about the way he is standing which reminds me of you…probably becuase you posed him. Love the flowers too, not sure about the red he is leaning against, too much soft against soft, although the colour is splendid with the flowers. Hmmm bit of a quandry. For me though he looks at his best next to the pepper pot and glasses of life because of their hard surfaces contrasting. I didn’t know how you could possibly make people good enough to not look out of place in the beauty, detail and perfection of the interior, but somehow you have done so!!! Bx

    • Oh, my! Good job I’m sitting down, mi’ old bean. So glad you like him, though. Does have a bit of a familiar boxy look, I agree. Thanks so much for having a shufty and posting a comment. See ya 😉
