How to Make an Easy Paper Rose

This tutorial will show you how to make a super easy spiral rose.
Supplies :
1. Bottle cap, or a round lid ( I have used bay food jar lid)
2. Scissors, fancy edge scissors ( optional) 3
. Quilling tool ( optional)
4. Glue
5. pencil and eraser

First trace the circle on a piece of paper and cut it out. 
Start cutting the circle in round spiral shape.
Start rolling the spiral from the outside end.
When the whole rose is coiled, put it on the mat and let it unwind.
Glue the shape at the bottom and you rose is ready.
If you have scalloped scissors, you can use them to cut the paper to give a fancy look to your rose.
