Craft: Paper Roses

Many people have asked me where I came up with the idea of the paper roses that my students made for the adults who have helped volunteer/work for our classroom in some capacity throughout the year. The idea originated at an annual DIY event before Christmas organized by my church. The woman who showed me how to make the roses directed me to a website, and from there I found another paper rose-making site that was more kid-friendly. Click on the link below. This site (The Elli Blog) has many great resources for other DIY projects that might interest you as well.
