Rolled Roses Tutorial

So I know there might be other tutorials out there on this, but I had a request for one, and I kind of just made it up the first time I did it here is mine

-fabric scissors or rotary cutter
-hot glue gun (loaded)

Cut a strip of fabric, the longer the strip the bigger the rose.  (Mine for this was 22" x 1.5" but it doesn't need to be perfect). 
Fold the fabric in half
 Tie a knot
 Start to roll the fabric.
 Add a dab of hot glue ever turn or two.
 Keep twisting the fabric and adding glue. (This is a fairly hot-glue heavy project).
 Leave a little bit at the end.
 Cover it in hot glue. 
 Glue to the bottom of the rose.
 And you're finished! 

Some people prefer to use fabric glue, but I feel as though hot glue dries more quickly, so I prefer it. 

Use these to dress up a hair clip, brooch, anything you can think here and here for a sample of what I've used them for.

I hope that wasn't too confusing.  Let me know if you have any questions!
