Cut and curl five large rose petals (see How to Make Crepe Paper Petals), using a double thickness of crepe paper. The same color or two different tints may be used. Gather the petals slightly and sew to the waist.
The waist is plain and a calyx made of green crushed crepe forms a finish at the waist line. The stem and leaves give an unusual finish. The leaves are made of crepe paper, cut across the grain, wired and made into sprays. The stem should be made of tightly twisted crepe paper or a piece of heavy string may be wrapped with crepe paper. Follow the directions here for making the crepe paper hat.
