|These are the cutouts from the templates that I made.|
|I used pages from this old Dinotopia book, which is usually considered Steampunk. It was also one of Matt's favorite childhood series.|
|This was my first rose! Notice the "Dinotopia"?? This is the large size rose.|
|Update: made one out of scrapbooking paper as well.|
This is the template that I used in order to create the roses. I printed the templates, cut them out, traced them onto heavy cardboard and created a reusable template. I also cut out a bunch of the template pieces. I have templates for all three sizes. I also plan on making some out of colored scrapbook paper. I think these would look great in boutonnieres. I love the medal idea, but these are just so pretty...
