Hi, everyone....does anyone have a good method for making rose buds? I love making folded roses, punched roses and roses out of 3/8's paper snipped and rolled but I sure would like to know how to make a realistic looking rosebud. Don't you think they look so perfect nestled in next to a rose in FULL bloom? Thanks so much for any ideas !! :)

I make them using the folded method, but only do a couple of turns, lay them on their side, and add sepals to the base (either coiled or punched).

Another option, is to make a small marquise, and add sepals to that.
