Well I tend to think yours are some of the best and compared mine did not look as good, but they are different styles. Thanks for the compliment and all your help with this.

Haha I hate the getting up so I have a cheat. I have a mini ironing board and I plug in the iron and put the board next tome on the floor. I use a low setting on the iron and lay it over the strip while I wrap one strip. and keep this process going till I have 4 or ironed then I slip out the paper and roll/glue. After that I lay the iron on the rolled rose for 20sec and then spray with soft starch.

After lots of triallast night this has been working for me today.
