A rose is just a rose is just a rose. People love 'em or hate 'em. I'm kind of indifferent. Probably because I've seen so many beautiful types of flowers. I think back to my first days at the Empty Vase in West Hollywood. I think back then I knew what a carnation was because once in 7th grade I bought my mom one for Mother's day. Yes, literally one at $3, which seemed like a fortune. I spoil that lady;)
In my quest to make the rose a bit more funky I've discovered two techniques. I will share one with you now. The other is in the reserve- hint: cut off the top to make it look like a very expensive garden rose. Fine, I told you.
Here's how to make a fringed rose. Pretty cool, eh?
