How to Make Your Own Never-Wilting 3D Printed Roses
Sound familiar? Just a few days ago we announced a brand new offering to Brit + Co. readers in San Francisco: Hand-delivered 3D printed roses for Valentine’s Day! That’s right. Folks in SF can surprise their special someone with a single rose, a half-dozen, or a dozen roses that will never, ever wilt. Read all about it right here. Now, we’re taking you behind the scenes to show you how we created these bold, bright, and colorful flowers.

Brit + Co SFShapeways.
Use epoxy to glue roses to stems. Let dry overnight.
How cute is that?
For single roses, simply tie a yellow ribbon around each one. You can also add a gift tag for that special personal touch.
For a half dozen roses, we bundled them together with burlap and ribbon.
Pretty adorable, if we do say so ourselves.
And for a dozen, we used floral foam to create a super sweet arrangement. Floral foam can be found at any plant store or flower market.
Place all dozen roses in the foam. Then place in your painted mason jar.
The perfect bouquet for a modern Valentine’s Day.
Again, if you’re in San Francisco and want to send some roses to your Valentine, be sure to order them now while supplies last. A single rose is $15, a half-dozen is $50, and a dozen is $100. Add $10 and a TaskRabbit will hand-deliver them on the 14th!
