  1. Cut 3 pieces of fabric 4" X 5".
  2. Fold right sides together, and sew a 1/4" seam along the 5" side to form a tube.
  3. Turn right side out.
  4. Insert about 1" of the toothpick inside one end of the tube.
  5. Gather the fabric around the toothpick and hold a rose leaf along side the gathered fabric.
  6. Tightly wrap the gathered fabric and rose leaf with green floral tape.
  7. Puff the rose out with your fingers and fold the top of the fabric tube to the inside to form a rosebud.
  8. Wrap the three roses and baby's breath with floral tape. Tie with a ribbon.

A single rose bud would make a very nice tray favor for a nursing home or for meals on wheels.
