anywho, i decided to print the template off of martha's site and try it for myself. there is a video in that link that will take you step-by-step through the process. the video moves kind of fast....so when you actually go to make a rose you will probably have to pause and catch up several times. if you dont get it the first time try-try-again. it took me about an hour and a half to finish assembling my first rose (this does not include the time it took me to cut out all the petals). this DIY has a higher difficulty level...dont get discouraged....it was hard for me and i make paper flowers all the time.
