A single rose is an elegant gift, no matter what the occasion. I have been making these since the early '70s.
wow! that is a really great idea! i can't wait to find a reason to make one.
Awesome project! Thanks for the idea
This looks like a great project for gift giving. My aunt made something similar (tree) for her grandsons for Christmas. I will send her this one for her grand-daughters. Thanks,
Who knew? I really am amazed.
Don't know if i have time to do this for my mother before tomorrow, but if I don't, I will try to do it by her birthday on this coming Wednesday. She's stuck in a nursing home, but had a good life with lots of money, and
had most everything she ever needed/ wanted including every known flower (fresh, silk, exotic, dried, potted, cut, you name it) except a dollar-bill flower!
I have so little money that I really could not buy a single decent gift for either occasion, and yet I'm crafty/ artistic and may be able to sacrifice a few "one" bills for her. She will be absolutely amazed since she is not at all crafty, having been busy earning her money all of her life. She has never appreciated what she called, "home-made" crafts my grandmother and I made her, but this one, under the circumstances, will be a great solution for the one who has had most everything under the sun. God bless you. : )
The instructions and pictures are a little hard to follow. Here's another site for reference:
I hope you were able to make the rose for your mother. I've been doing these for so long they take me less and 20 minutes per rose.
I make my rose a little differently than that website. Be sure to push your rolled corners together so they crinkle. Trying to put
Action into words is not as easy as you think.
This bouquet had $380.00 in it.
I just made two of these as class gifts for my son's teachers. I tried some of the other instructions which are available (including the one listed below), but did not like how they looked in the center. This one is much better. If someone is having trouble following the instructions, it might help to go to one of the websites that has a video of how to make one (such as http://www.lisashea.com/japan/origami/dirs/rose/index.html). After watching it, these instructions should make more sense. Thanks for sharing your awesome dollar bill rose.
I haven't got started yet. I'm going to buy the material I will give you the feed back when I'm done. Have a great day.
It is so amazing and looks really hard but it is not.
Nice idea, and pretty. I would just worry about how much trouble it would be to take apart if someone wanted to spend their money gift. Maybe making a tree would be easier. If anyone has an idea for this please let me know. Thanks!
It's not hard to take a part at all, you just fold back the green cup under the money using either scissors or wire cutters snip all the wires at once and then flatten out the bills and spend away.
