Cut and Roll the Spiral Shape

Draw and cut a spiral shape starting from the edges of the circle. Leave a circle in the center; this is where you will affix the rolled flower.

Start rolling the cut spiral from the edge until you reach the center.

Glue Rolled Paper

Release the swirl of rolled paper to reveal your rose, then hot glue the swirl to the center to secure the rose in place.
