I make paper twist roses  to decorate packages for gifts.  They  look beautiful when paired with dried flowers and  floral or botanical gift wrap papers.
I used strips of organza and the same ribbon rose technique to make these roses to adorn a giant Victorian Christmas stocking which I made as a decoration for our schools bazaar. (I also handmade the stocking, street lamp and street sign)

I use my favorite ribbon rose technique and paper twist ribbon or strips of organza to create large roses to embellish gift packages and wreaths.

Since the length and width of ribbon or organza will determine how large you can make the roses..you can "challenge" yourself by experimenting with different sizes, lengths and types of ribbon to "grow" yourself an entire rose garden.

You will need about a 1 1/2 yard length of 3 1/2 or 4 inch wide paper twist or a soft flexible ribbon to make a nice size rose.

I'll bet he'd love these. Thanks for the idea. We're always looking for handmade ways to dress up plain wrappings. Our simplest is the folded paper (accordion, like a fan), and while you could attach it at one end and spread out the other, we like to tack it down in the middle, and spread out both ends bow tie fashion. Embellish or stay simple.
