I made metal roses once for my girlfriends Birthday. Spent hours making them. I gave her one and kept the other for myself. I wanted you show how dedicated I was to her.
Unfortunately her parents hated me, they thought their daughter would be better off with someone wealthy, and forced us apart. to add insult to injury they destroyed the rose I made so she wouldn't have anything to remind her of me.
Pic related. the one of the left I gave to her the right the one I still have.

She must not have truly cared enough for you, if she let her parents decide for who who to date.

I think what he/she meant was making it for their friend, so they can give it to THEIR Valentine.

OP here,
Nope, though I did help a friend make a set to give to his gf. This pair was for a very close friend of mine who knows exactly how I feel about her and, to be honest, I'm glad she does as we're both completely open with each other.

A worthless thumb currency for an instruction that might get me laid? seems fair enough.

OP Here,
Yes, this is mine - you can see that the photos are the same, the username similar and the question the same. I think I'll go ahead and make that step-by-step then.....

Just ****** do it and quit being a thumbwhore.
#158 to #25 - unholyjebus (02/10/2013) [-]
He didn't know how many people were interested in knowing how to make these. The amount of thumb ups is a good way to gauge this. Maybe he didn't want to waste his time on making a tutorial no one was interested in.

OP here,
Seriously, I never thought it would be anywhere near this popular. I'm gonna start straight away.

Hey, isn't that Concernedmom420?

OP here,
To clear up any confusion, I made this post at roughly the same time as putting out a similar one on Instructables:

www.instructables.com/id/Copper-Rose-Perfect-for-Valentines-Day/

as I wanted to see what people thought and whether it would be worth me making a guide (and **** it, everyone likes being complemented a bit). Regarding receiver of the flowers: Yes, she knows how I feel and doesn't reciprocate those feelings. No, I don't drop people easily and so haven't given up on her, as we get along really well anyhow and if you like something enough, you'll do anything for it.
Hope that explains things

I made a rose out of jones soda bottle caps once

OP Here,
That is truly amazing, nice job - to take something and completely repurpose it is so cool. I have the luxury of starting with sheet metal, so props to you for that.
User avatar #149 to #77 - cabooseisjosh (02/10/2013) [-]
Thanks mate. Its kind of what I do. I like to find things that are essentially useless and give them a purpose y'know? Kind of a hobby, that is when I have the funds to do so haha

Those are some mighty fine pieces of work, you sir are a gentleman and a scholar and I do hope you will get your girl in the end. Cheers mate, don't give up.

...oh well, I'd love to tell guys to give me a potted plant of whatever flower they want to give me instead because flowers wilt
