Crepe Paper Rose - A Perfect Imitation :)

Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose!!! :)

This was a poetic line said in Gertrude Stein's poem Sacred Emily, written in 1913 and published in 1922.

I still don't understand how many interpretations that line has.

All that I want to say here is, a rose is a rose even if it is made out of paper. :) :) :) as simple as that!!!

And you know why I have posted this one today????

Today as it is childrens day which is Nehruji's Birth day, I wanted to dedicate his favorite roses to him :)

Happy childrens day to all!!! :)

My passion for paper art is still on its go.. :) Crepe paper is one versatile version of paper that best suits for making flowers.

I just gave it a try and was absolutely impressed with the outcome. Hope you all like it too.

Made this large bunch in a marathon stretch of 6 hours. :)

Google is my guru for lot of my crafts and so is this one. Find the tutorial for this flower here.

Hi Nithya,
I chanced to see your blog when I was browsing for arts and crafts in Chennai. I was really impressed by your blog. I live in Chennai and am working. I have a keen interest to learn different techniques in arts. I would like to find out if you accept students and would be able to spare a few hours to teach ?
