Valentine tissue paper rose
I started with a rolled up piece of green paper for a stem. Then tore a short piece of orange paper for the middle of the rose with little tears part way down for stamen. I wrapped the orange paper around the the green stem folding over one of the stamen to completely hide the top of the green stem.
Then I wrapped a strip of red tissue paper around the stem and secured it by dipping my cotton swab into my glue/water mixture and applying it to the bottom of the tissue paper around the stem.
