Finally I'm almost finished adding the salal leaves. Now I am finally going to add the last leaf right directly in front of the rose. I've already rolled the leaf to give it an exaggerated curl forward.
Roll the leaf and then bend it around the front of the rose.
Tape into place with green corsage tape when it is right where you want it.
I decided to add one more leaf on the left. I now like the effect I've created - almost like the rose leaves themselves.
You can ribbon wrap the stem if you desire. I'm going to leave the stem green as I like the vivid contrast between the red rose and the green of the leaves.
