June is the time to celebrate roses, the delicate, strongly scented flowers that have been a symbol of love throughout the ages as well as an avid interest for many gardeners. Roses also often show up as motifs, or ingredients, in crafts.

What sort of rose crafts are out there? Martha Stewart has shown the most delicate pink roses that are actually crafted out of coffee filters—I never would have believed these were faux.

Here's a gorgeous rose-adorned card project from Craft at Home that is heavy on the pretty and light on the cheesy.

Craft magazine has a free pdf project plan for an origami rose box mastermined by paper crafter Phillip Chapman-Bell of The Fitful Flog

If you are hoping to craft a more precious present, try this Porcelain Clay Rose Brooch project from the ever-resourceful HGTV.

If you want to go with a project that uses actual roses and harkens back to a heavily scented, '80s heyday. Here's a recipe for rose potpourri .

To take the rose-theme less literally, uber-crafter Alicia Paulson keeps a craft blog called Rosy Little Things where she blogs and crafts about all things sweet and girly.
