1.Start by drawing squares on the craft paper, with each square measuring 1.5 inches. Ensure you do this carefully and instead of giving the squares sharp edges, try cutting the corners in a round style. After completion, the squares will appear in a spiral pattern.

3. Create as many roses as you wish using this method. You may choose to make stand-alone roses by inserting pipe cleaners to resemble their stems.
