1. Lay out contact paper, sticky side up. Place the embroidery hoop on top of the paper and trace around it with a pencil, leaving about half an inch of extra contact paper on the outside edge.
2. Cut off all the petals and leaves from the faux roses.
3. Peel off the backing from the contact paper. Place the embroidery hoop onto the contact paper.
4. Place the leaves and rose petals onto the contact paper, inside the hoop. Once all the faux leaves and petals have been placed, remove the hoop from the contact paper.
5. Peel off the backing of an additional sheet of contact paper. Place this piece sticky side down on top of the sheet covered with the petals and leaves.
6. Use the back edge of the scissors to flatten the contact paper to remove any bubbles.
