Step-wise tutorial for making organdy rose flower making   :

      • Cut the organdy cloth into small square pieces approx. 3.5″ as in image 1. Your organdy rose flower size will depend upon the size of the pieces you cut and also on number of petals you add.
      • Fold the piece diagonally to make a triangle and press along the crease to mark it as in image 2 & 3,
      • Fold it again, but this time, the other two corners to the marked crease as in image 4.
      • Fold this piece along the center line to create a shape as in image 6

      • Now to make a petal shape for the organdy rose flower out of it, make use of any thin stick/pen refill/toothpick to curl the two edges as shown in image 7 (I’ve used a toothpick here.)
      • Your organdy rose flower petal will look like image 9 & 10 once you have finished curling.
      • Next, simply gather the triangle end of your organdy rose flower petal as in image 12. Keep in mind that the area of petal below the toothpick marking in image 11 has to go in the gathers so that the cut edges aren’t visible in the petals.
      • Use a thread to tie them up else you can simply twist around to keep them tight

      • As shown in image 14, with the help of your thumbs on the petal side opposite to the curls, try to bring a curvy shape to the petal.
      • Now for the center bud of the organdy rose flower, use a flower making wire to make a small hook shape like in image 18
      • Take your square piece, fold into a triangle, and simply gather the raw sides as in image 17.

      • Place your hook within this piece and tie it up in such a way that the hook is tightly secured within the center bud of organdy rose flower.
      • Now you can start arranging your petals around the bud, one over the other in a way such as to give it a flowery look 🙂

      • Once the organdy rose flower part is over, start covering our stem area with the flower tape as in image 24. ( the flower tape has glue on itself so no need of applying any adhesive)
      • and tada!!! your organdy rose flower is ready :). Here I have used ready-made artificial leaves for the rose.
