Paper Rose Christmas Wreath

Wanted to make a paper rose wreath for our beautiful teen niece.
This isn't it, but it's the starting point.
This wreath was used as a centerpiece for a baptism.
It was made with a wreath form inside.
I then had wrapped different gift-wrap paper from our baby shower inside a layer of tulle. 
Finished it off with blue ribbons and teddy bears. 
Each centerpiece was special.
They were on the tables surrounding hurricane lamps.
It really looked beautiful.  

So I started by deconstructing the centerpiece.
You can see it in the picture below in the back.
I wanted to make paper roses and decided coffee filters were the way to go.
So I searched for some tutorials/patterns.
I found the exactly what I was looking for here

Make and make and make.
Glue and glue and glue.

To finish it, 
added a purple sparkled pointsetta 
and a beautiful matching peacock.

These pictures are with different flash settings, I really like the glow in this one, but the detail of the  flower  and peacock in the one below. Which one do you prefer?

She loved it!
