Man this was difficult to make. I had some good instructions from Lincraft but couldn't figure out how to do the 'turn and roll' part and not end up with a tight bud, and only managed to work it out with the help of this Youtube video, where the girl was making a rose from a paper streamer. Once i watched that i gave it another go and this was the result.
It's made from a 10cm strip of my dress material. Gives quite a big rose (9cm diameter), so i think for the other roses i'll have mostly 8cm strip ones with a few larger and smaller ones interspersed. That one cost $1.10 to make, and i need 25 of them.
