Remove from the bag with fingers (put on some cold cream first). It will be sticky, but it will come off after kneading for several minutes in your hand.

Continue to knead the dough until it is off of your hands and the color is solid not mottled.

Place the dough into a clean zip type bag. Let it set for several minutes.

For each petal, you will need a small ball of dough. For each rose the small balls of  dough need to be the same size. If you think the size of a garden pea, and continue with each ball of dough, it makes it easier.  Flatten the first ball of dough between your fingers until it is almost paper thin

Take the first flattened piece of dough and roll from one side to the other to create the bud or center of the flower. As you roll the petal, slight push top edge of the petal back.

Flatten another piece of dough for the second petal. Place this petal around the bud, slightly pushing back the sides at the top of petal. Pinch slightly  to help hold petal in place.

Flatten another piece of dough for the third petal. Place this petal opposite the second petal. Again slightly push dough at top edge of petal, to create the look of a real rose.

Continue to add petals, until the rose is the size you want. When finished adding the petals, cut the bottom of the flower flat, so it will glue on any surface.
