Looking for a creative way to present a long stem rose? Here's one way to showcase an already brilliant work of art. Great gift idea for Mother's Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, National Nurses Day or any special occasion to honor and say, "Thank you!"
I designed these last year to give out to parents who were walking their senior players under an arch of lacrosse sticks. Sadly, for my son's class of 2020, we missed out on that special day but can still share the love with others.
Wanted to display our school colors, so used purple tissue paper and coaster sized white dollies. However, you can get an endless amount of looks by changing up the colors and using various patterns and combinations of papers.
In addition to the tissue paper and dollies, I found double sided wrapping paper, and cut into squares (looks like rectangles in the picture below because it was curved). I decided on gold for the inside and silver for the back.
Since it was for a lacrosse event, I wanted the rose's wrapping to slightly resemble a lacrosse stick. I used craft paper for the largest, outside cover and cut the length to be about two inches longer than the rose, say 23 to 25 inches. I knew the neck would need to cut in a little for the ribbon to hold in place. Used clear tape to wrap dolly around the neck of the rose and then had strip of tissue paper folded in half to wrap around from behind. Used glue stick to secure gold square to the top of back cover. Doesn't take much glue at all.
When cutting the parchment/craft paper, think of a shove type top with a wide handle. Fold handle in half but not the top, then fold the sides, almost like making a paper airplane. Use a hole puncher to make your holes for your choice of ribbon to run through, and practice getting one just right for your template to cut all the rest.
Slide your wrapped rose just inside the ribbon, secure tissue and have overlap at the base, and gently tie.
Stay humble & BOLD!
