2. Paper roses
Start with a square piece of paper towel. Fold the perforated edge down 2". Then, create 1" tears through the folded-over layer, spacing out the rips about 2" apart. These "tabs" are what create the roses petals.
Next, wrap the paper towel once around your index finger; add in next finger and wrap again, then wrap one more time around your ring finger to create the rose's coils. Pinch the wrapped towel about 3" down and twist very tightly. The top 2-4" creates the rose shape. Twist the rest of the paper towel as tightly and thinly as you can to create the stem.
For a leaf, leave out a small section of the paper towel and twist just below it and on down.
