Hanging Roses Flower Ball Tutorial

I was browsing blogs a couple weeks back and found a post about these great hand made crepe paper roses on this cute scrapbooking blog Homespun with Heart ! The second I saw them I KNEW what I was gonna do! I have had these Styrofoam ball forms for a while now, and thought I would do cute flowers all over them, and hang them in the twins' room. But sadly, the flower idea was pretty expensive. Especially because I wanted to do three of them. SO I thought this was a great, thrifty alternative! And I LOVE how they turned out!
 
Tips:

* Your fingers WILL get burned. Work carefully. lol
* The Styrofoam balls are strangely expensive? What's up with that? I waited for coupons each week to buy all three. I also used a coupon to buy the ribbon.
* I found the pink and white crepe paper at Walmart for cheap!
The more "baby" blue color was harder to come by. I found it at Zurchers or Party city. They have LOTS of colors.
* Keep in mind the amount of crepe paper on the rolls you buy. There is NOTHING more annoying than running out of supplies in the middle of a project... I KNOW. It happened with the white AND the blue! Crepe paper is cheap! buy more than you'll THINK you need.
* I used two whole rolls of pink
* One and a half rolls of white
* And 2 rolls of blue (only because it came with less in each package at Zurchers)
