~My handmade paper rose~

I love paper roses both vintage and new.. today I made this one.
I used watercolor paints from Isabella & Samuel watercolor kit..(hey it's all I had at the time) LOL.. to paint the petals and the leaves. I'm hoping my next one will be a better!
These paper roses were made with coffee filters. They were shown on Martha Stewart this past week.. I only came in on the end so I'm not sure I did it correctly.... Here is the Gal that makes them Mommy Makes Roses web site. Hers are FABULOUS but check out the prices. I guess mine will just have to do :-} Thanks Carole for emailing me this info!
