Cupcake Paper Roses- Valentine's Day Crafts

(for Valentine's Day Crafts)

*Three cupcake papers
*Chenille stem
Flatten and fold three cupcake papers in half.  Trim one about one fourth inch to make it slightly smaller than the others.  Roll the trimmed paper into a cone for the center of the rose.  (See photos) Place a drop of glue toward the bottom. Wrap the second paper with the fold at the bottom around the first so that it is wrapped tightly at the bottom and looser at the top.  Wrap the third folded paper with the fold side to the bottom around the outside.  Fold the edges of the outer paper down to resemble the petals of a rose.  Wrap the chenille stem around the base of the rose to hold everything in place.  Bend the remainder of the chenille stem downward for a stem.

The rose can represent the perfect flower and so, it can used as a symbol for the perfect love Jesus has for us.

“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” (Solomon 2:1)

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.  (Isaiah 35:1)
