I finally got floral tape and made these last night. I think they look very realistic. I also made 3 pink ones, but I haven't finished them yet. Later, I'm going to work on some more, probably red ones. I'd like to find some silk leaves that look nice to go with them.
Here they are on top of one of the hat boxes I made. I found these on Martha Stewart, made by a lady named Cassie. The link to her site,Mommy Makes Roses is here.
I'm happy with how they turned out.
