Learn how to make a unique rose from clay that can be given as a gift to your special someone. 1. Make about 20 tear-drop shapes out of the clay. 2. Flatten each of these to form petals. 3. Roll one of the petals up to form the center. 4. Curl each of the other petals around this center. 5. Stretch the base of the flower downward to form the stem. Add clay as needed to make the stem the desired length. 6. Form leaves with the remaining "petals" by creasing them and attaching them to the stem.
