Sheet Music Roses for Packages

I just love these roses.  They are made from sheet music or old book pages.  They are a beautiful addition to any gift, especially for Christmas. 

First you take a piece of sheet music and copy it - double sided.  If you are using a book page with words rather than music on it, just find an old book and tear out the pages one by one.  Your flowers will be smaller using a book. 

Cut a perfect square out of the page and then draw a spiral circle on the page.Then cut the page following the lines you just drew.  You will then have a long spiral looking piece of paper.  Start rolling from the big end in and keep the center tight.  You will soon have a beautiful rose.  Secure the bottom of the rose with  hot glue to hold in place.   Enjoy
