Hi Crafters,
Well as we all know it was Valentines Day yesterday and love was in the air.

Yesterday my DH bought me a box of Ferrero Rocher ( lucky me ). Being a crafter an idea came into my head for the wrappers. So I didn't waist any time eating them lol ( not all of them I did let my Son have one and my DH. LOL ) I am such a pig when it comes to chocolate.

Any way I set about my creation this morning to to see if it would work. The process was very sticky and messy but I love the finished look.

Click on photos for a closer look.

Here it is. I made a rose. I used the same technique as the other roses I have made. ( You can see them HERE.) Instead of colouring the paper I covered it with the gold ferrero rocher wrapper, that was the messy part.
As you can see in the pic's there are a couple of nicks in places where the foil wrapper has torn, this can be covered up later when completely dry. I am pleased with the result though. I may even leave it, with it's torn edges as they are, for that shabby look.

I don't know what I am going to do with the rose yet, maybe it will go on a gift box or I may just frame it I don't know. I was just enjoying myself experimenting and seeing what I would end up with.

Well I hope you like it, why not leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Being a recycle freak I love this. It is very very effective as well. Perhaps you need to get hold of a load more FR LOL

How would you make this? It looks amazing and definitely a fun project to try. Maybe a tutorial or instructions on how you made it would be appreciated.
