I've seen newspaper rose wreaths up and down the net lately, and I decided to use this same concept to make a magazine wreath. My friend Sarah let's me peruse her US Weekly magazine when she is finished, so after I read them, I made this-it's like recycling twice! Just so you know, no celebrity gossip clips were harmed in the making of this wreath....
Step One: Cut four circles, the top circle should be a brighter/more solid color because you will see the most of this. My circles were about 8 inches wide, but....it's not a science, and it doesn't have to be perfect. If it had to be perfect, I assure you, I would not be the one sharing this craft.
Step Two: Cut these four pieces of paper in a spiralwith a little bump ever few inches, this just gives the roses more of a 'petal' look, though you could just do a straight spiral.
Step Three: Start on the outside of the circle with the 'point' and just begin rolling it. This outside point will become the inside of your rose.
Step Four: The center of the spiral becomes the base of your rose, this is a good spot to smear with hot glue. I held a bunch of my roses together with pieces of tape, and later went back and hot glued them to hold their shape.
Step Five: Rose number 1 of about a million....complete. You can allow these to open, or remain closed as much as you want.
