More and more people are using texts to convey messages, and text pictures, or emoticons, made with symbols on the keyboard, are a clever addition to any message. Play the romantic with your next text message. Draw a picture of a rose and send it to your sweetheart on Valentine's Day or just to say, "I love you."

Make a "@" symbol by pressing "Shift" and "2." The "@" is the flower on the rose.

Enter two dashes next to the "@" symbol. Do not leave any space between the characters. Make sure you have used dashes and not the underscore symbol.

Type a " > " sign for the leaves and then two more dashes. Your completed rose looks like this: @-->---.

Type the "@" symbol to begin your rose.

Type a left facing bracket, " } ", next to the first character The rose is now fuller on the bottom.

Type one dash. Press "shift" and "6" to type the carat symbol. This is a thorn on the stem of the rose. This is the progress so far: @}-^.

Type two more dashes and another carat symbol. Finish the rose with two more dashes. The completed rose looks like this: @}-^--^--.

Type a " >" symbol under the "@" symbol to make the rose bloom look longer. After two dashes for the stem, type a semicolon on the stem to make a leaf or a different type of thorn. A rose using these symbols will look like this: @>--;----.

Use the bracket symbol to make leaves. The rose will look like this: @>--}---.

Type parentheses around the @ symbol for a fuller bloom : (@)--^--}--.

Add any of the other symbols in the above steps to make the rose exactly the way you want it. (@)>--^-- or @}>--;-- are some examples of the results you might achieve. Your imagination will dictate the result you want.

Tips

  • Type the symbols in the opposite direction and use the symbols that face the other way to make the rose face right. Make a few roses with shorter stems if you want to make several roses and stack them on top of each other.
