Roses, cheese and sandwiches

I spent last night making pink roses and rosebuds. Tonight I've made a wheel of brie, edam cheese and some cheese salad sandwiches.

I'm pleased with the flowers, the sandwiches and the brie, but not so keen on the edam. It will do as a shelf-filler, with better items more prominent in the shop.

The flowers were made from paper slightly thicker than tissue paper, cut into tiny squares with the edges of one side rounded. I pasted each to a stem (made from florists' wire and green tape, prepared earlier), and rounded the edges of the roses.

The sandwiches and cheese were made from plastic corks. The texture is spongy, just the right look for bread. The cheese and salad are varying bits of yellow and green paper, and the 'tomato' is just a dab of red paint.


  1. Hi Julie,
    I love the sandwiches! Very good. And where did you get such a teeny-tiny vase for the flowers! Amazing! Keep posting!
