1. Stick your template onto a thicker piece of card and then cut it out – this will help keep it sturdy when you are making it. Start by painting the outer leaves of the rose red.

Top Tip!…Give your outer petals two coats of paint for a more even finish..

2. Stick gold mosaic pieces into the centre of your rose – it doesn’t matter if they go over the lines as this will be covered anyway.

3. Scrunch up little balls of yellow tissue paper and stick these over the top of the small circles on the template so they form a ring around the gold centre.

Top Tip!…Scrunch up lots of tissue paper balls at once before you start sticking them down.

4. Next, scrunch up lots of little balls of the white tissue and fill the petals with these so you can’t see template underneath.

5. When you have filled the petals, do the same with the green tissue paper and fill in the inner leaves. You will need to scrunch up smaller balls for this.

6. Scrunch up some red balls of tissue paper and stick these around the edge of the yellow ring, so you will be sticking them on top of the white tissue paper. With the glitter glue, fill in the outer leaves. The glitter takes a while to dry so leave it for a few hours before you touch it.
