Revised rolling rose svg

using method from DCWV blog, paper rose file below

flower using rolling rose method and new RollingRose2 file 

I'm sure everyone has seen the amazing paper roses over at the DCWV blog and I wanted to give them a try too.  I made an svg based on her drawing, but I have to say, no matter how many times I try, I can't get mine to look like hers and I'm ready to give up (purple one).  I did really like that the spiral she used had a flat base so I decided to revisit my rolling rose svg post and see if creating a flat base would fix the problem some people had with it cutting funny.   I'm liking the new one better, so even if yours cut fine before, you may want to give the new one a try.  I'm also going to post the svg to try and make one like the dcwv, you can see their tutorial and blog HERE, or she has the template there to download as a pdf, there is also lots of other great stuff on their blog to peak at -I love to spend time over there.  I did some today using the RollingRose2 file and the quickie method and attached magnets to the back so I can put some roses on my fridge.    Now I'm going to work on a sewing project, you can see a sneak peak below.....


The free svg files will be posted here for at least one week, please leave a comment if you decide to download.
