One of the kids bought a bag of tootsie rolls the other day, and I started “playing”.  Here’s what I ended up with.

Wow!! You are so creative and talented.  Did you soften in any way before you started shaping?

I had no idea you can shape things from tootsie roll. It looks so perfect, Patricia. Like a real rose. Yes, do tell how you do this! smile

Nicely done! I’ve done those. You can use Starburst candies and bubblegum, too, if you want colored ones.

Thanks Bernadette - I thought about Starburst candies, but not bubblegum.  The kids would love that!

that is awesome!! I never thought of using any of those things to make roses. i always just used to use play dough (and then the child that i am playing with ruins them)
