Day 75: Paper Roses

One of the Soldiers from another section got wind that I like to make paper roses from crepe paper, so he asked me to make a bouquet for a girl he likes here on the FOB. I totally forgot about it until last night, but I managed to squeeze out four in record time.

See, what I think you do is take a picture of some real flowers and tell everyone they're made of paper and you made them so you can impress everyone. lol :)

you're a talented paper-flower maker!

Oh my, does the Army know that you make those beautiful paper roses? Your talent is needed here in the states girlfriend. We would all love a class and I ain't coming there no time soon! Bryan posted photos of the BX, food court and some sand on facebook.

These are beautiful, and as far as I'm concerned, BETTER than the real thing. These roses will never wilt, and can be enjoyed forever!
