At the time I made these roses I was using whatever I had on hand. White paper plates would have worked better, but the base is a quartered paper plate used as a base for the rose petals. The rest of the tutorial is as it was printed in the previous post.
I'm working on a new rose for this year, also made from coffee filters and I will be sharing it soon. These flowers are great for gifts, wedding decor, tree ornaments, etc. Just to add a little postscript, the book pages were from Reader's Digest pages. Each page made two petals, and as for the green paper plate, you can't even see the green when the flower is finished. Happy crafting everyone.
