Would you like to make my Shabby French Script hand dyed crepe paper roses?
These are super lush and lovely and look divine gathered en masse in a bowl, scattered over the tables at a wedding, used as a gift topper in place of a bow, and used as accents in a garland. I've used them as embellishments on Dreamcatchers, faux corsages, and Christmas Tree decorations. No two ever look the same, and the hand dyeing makes them look very special.
I talked about hand dyeing the white crepe paper when I made some pretty shabby chic gift tags a little while back. You can read about that, including instructions, here. The hand dyeing is well worth it for the little extra time it takes, as it really adds to the delicate result.
French script rubber stamps can be found on eBay and Etsy.
It may take you a couple of attempts to get the hang of the rolling/winding technique to form the roses, but if you bear in mind, that the result is meant to resemble a huge overblown Cabbage Rose, you'll get the gist.
Watch here....and enjoy!
