Fold bill in half lengthwise. Unfold. Lay bill back side facing up (looking at
George). Curl all 4 corners tightly using a toothpick. Curl until the the opposite
2 side curls meet at fold. Scrunch the bills in the center, from the bottom of George
to the top. Fold wire in half and place the scrunched center of the bill into the
fold of the wire. Twist the wire to secure. Shape bill by smoothing out the base
and forming a cup-like shape. Do this to remaining bills.
On the first petal push in tight to form the inner petals. Place inside of the
second, pushing these petals tight. Intertwine the wires as you add petal layers.
Twist the bills so that the edges are not lined up. Continue until you've used
up all bills. Each layer will be a little looser than the one before it. Shape the
rose. You can use a bit of tape to keep the petals where you want them. Gather all
the wires from the bills and wrap with floral tape. Start at the base of the rose
and wrap. Add rose leaves.
