Sock Rose Instructions
To teach you how to make your roses out of baby socks, I made an instructional video. Click the white arrow in the middle to play.

Once you have made your baby sock roses, there are many ways you can turn them into a bouquet. I wanted to make every part of this bouquet a useful gift, so I chose to wrap the flowers in a square of muslin.
To do this, I simply folded the muslin square into a triangle, and wrapped it around your flowers. I found that the muslin is a bit floppy, so I added some extra folds to help it keep its shape. See the step-by-step pictures below for more information.
Just experiment and see what works for you - the precise technique isn't that important. Secure your wrapping with a ribbon, and you're done :-)
Alternatively, why not mix your sock roses in a bouquet with fresh flowers or foliage? Pick from your garden or buy some green foliage to pack around your roses. Wrap your bouquet of flowers in cellophane or paper and secure with a ribbon. Beautiful!
I bought most of the materials for this project from eBay. It was especially handy for florist tape and florist wire, which can be tricky to find.
