Last night I took a class in making a paper rose wreath at the wonderful Silver Clay Gifts.
The class was taught by AnnMarie Gallivan, who makes all sorts of beautiful things with paper.
I was there with my friend Barbara and only one other student, so we had individualized attention!
AnnMarie had these scalloped spirals all cut out for us. We started rolling the spiral from the long end around a thin wooden stick, loosened the roll a bit and hot glued the rose at the bottom.
Here's Angus today investigating one of my leftover roses.
We arranged the roses and some precut leaves on a cardboard base and hot glued them down.
Here's the back view, shown with the hanging ribbon.
All in all, it was easy and a lot of fun - we had a great time.
Today it has been snowing steadily and we've accumulated about 10 inches.
I just shoveled part of the driveway and am about to crash - I know Bill will do the rest with the snow blower when he gets home from work. I'm starting to wonder whether winter will ever end!!
Hope you're having a great day!
