Cut out the rectangle from the corrugated paper. Then fold it in a half and round the right upper edge.
Stretch the paper in the center of the corrugated paper so that the candy fits well in it. Wrap the candy in prepared paper, and then clip the bottom of the paper, so that the bud does not disintegrate.
Trim the tip lightly, and then insert the wire into the bud.
In order to make petals, you will need another rectangle of corrugated paper of the same color. Fold it several times to make the fold width not less than 2.5-3 cm. Then cut into small rectangles and give them the shape of the rose petals.
Screw the petals with a wooden stick. Make 4 more petals of the rose, which should be slightly larger than the previous ones, to make a three-dimensional flower.
