Procedure:

The flower

Step 1:
Cut off 50 cm of the binding wire. String 6 R onto it. Move them about 20 cm from the beginning of the wire. Create a circle. Twist the wire under the R twice.

Step 2:
String about 1.5 – 1.6 cm of R on the longer end. Twist it around the previous circle. Connect the circle. Thread the wire behind the wire at the beginning of the circle.

Step 3:
String about 2.5 – 2.6 cm of R still on the same end. Twist it around the previous circle. Connect the circle. Thread the wire behind the wire at the beginning of the circle.

Step 6:
You need several petals to create the flower. Each petal size is created 3x. The petals in the middle of the flower are the smallest ones completed in Step 1. The petals completed in Step 3 are behind them. Then come the petals completed in Step 4. Use the petals completed in Step 5 as the final ones.

Step 7:
Reinforce all of the petals. Use the shorter end of the wire; the one by the first circle. Twist the binding wire around the middle of each circle. Initially proceed upwards to the edge of the petal. Then proceed in the same manner to the lower edge. Twist both ends of the binding wire together three times.

Step 8:
Curl the bigger petals.

Step 9:
Place the smallest petals together. Twist the wires under them at a length of 0.5 cm.

Step 10:
Add further petals. The petals should partially overlap each other. Twist the wires together under them at a length of about 0.5 cm. You can further shape them.

Step 11:
Add further petals. The petals should partially overlap each other. Twist the wires together under them at a length of at least 0.5 cm. You can further shape them.

Step 12:
Add further petals. The petals should partially overlap each other. Twist the wires together under them at a length of 1.5 to 3 cm. You can further shape them.

Step 4:
String only half a circle (about 1.8 cm). String another 1 R. Shift it slightly to the binding wire. Twist the wire twice underneath it. String the remaining section of the circle.

Step 5:
Repeat the procedure in Steps 1 to 4 another 5x.

Step 6:
Reinforce all of the petals. Use the shorter end of the wire; the one by the first circle. Twist the binding wire around the middle of each circle. Initially move upwards to the edge of the petal. At the top of the wire, secure it behind the  wire under the protruding R. Then move to the lower edge.

Step 7:
Twist the wires under one petal together at a length of 1.5 cm. Twist the wires under the others at a length of 0.5 cm.

Step 8:
Place two petals with the shorter twist at the end of the wires of the petal with the longer twist. Twist the wires together at a length of  1.5 cm.

Step 9:
Add the remaining petals. Once again twist the wires together at a length of 1 cm.

Compilation

Place the leaf on the stem of the rose. It is up to you how far from the flower you do this. Twist all of the wires together up to the end of the longest one. Snip off the narrowing end of the twisted wires. You can wind a florist's ribbon around it from the bottom upwards.
