Mother's Day Crepe Paper Rose Instructions for a DIY Bonbonnierre

By Stjudescreations123 @judepaperflowers
Mother's Day is May 8th,so you could gift this easy crepe paper rose (template,pattern can be used from my paper flower book) and create a  bouquet for your Mom for this year! The instructions for making these flowers are similar to any other paper flower.

Bomboniere (Italian) also known as "favors", are gifts given by hosts to their guests on special occasions such as bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings, baptism, First Communion or Confirmation. They usually include Jordan almonds, known in Italian as Confetti,so here is my twist to it.I used Hershey's Kisses for this rose. They will be perfect gifts for baby showers,baptisms or birthdays!

Step1.
Cut a large square from the crepe paper around 2/1/2 inches square.(the hersheys kisses need to fit in it)
Fold it diagonally into a triangle.
Tip: Bend the top of the stem into shepherd hook shape.This is prevent the stem from slipping off.I have learnt this the hard way that if we do not do the bend the flower slips off (to my horror at the most essential time) I do  see instructions without this but if you are going to be moving the flowers around a bit like I do for an event this is greatly advisable.

Step2.
Bring over both the upper corners of the triangle wrapping around the hersheys kisses overlapping each other keeping the stem wire inside.It's a juggle but with some effort you will get it and will be a pro soon.Hold ends down and tie tightly with the thread/wire.Cut off the extra thread.You already have the Hershey RoseBud ready!! Isn't that easy? Add sepals and tape to the stem to make the easiest Rosebuds ever..(This one is all credits to my mom who passed this technique onto me)
