So what have I done with all my rolled roses?
Royal Rose Ball
I die cut them from the Royal Rose die by My Favorite Things and Red Riding Hood Red cardstock from Stampin' Up. The centers of half of the roses are stick pins with pearls on the ends. These pins are holding the roses in a Styrofoam ball I bought at a local craft store. The remaining roses are glued onto the ball using Tacky Glue.
This works great as long as you don't use the rose ball as a soccer ball...whose eight year old boy would do such a thing?...
Yes, mine did and you could have used his eyes for saucers when he saw one of the flowers fall off. Not a problem, a little more Tacky and all was fixed.
I wrapped the ball with a ribbon, tied it, and tacked it down with the roses with pins.
Then I tied it to my ceiling fan in my guest room.
I think it is a vast improvement to a plain white ceiling fan.
