Open up the stem from the side, somewhere near the bottom.
Place the base of the leaf at the middle of the stem. The ridge at the middle of the stem should fit the slot at the base of the leaf.
Redo the folds you unfolded in the stem to close it.
Slide the leaf along the stem as high as you like. It can be freely adjusted anytime.
Completed rose with calyx, stem, and leaf. The stem may be trimmed to desired length. If this is your first complete rose I know you’ll be tempted to show/give this to someone else.
