Colorful Rolled Paper Rosette Flowers

Paper rolled rosettes are one of the cutest and easiest paper flowers to create. They also have many versatile uses, from bouquets to gift box toppers, wreaths, and more. It’s no wonder so many of my followers want to know how to make paper rosettes!

How to Make Paper Rosette Flowers

If using a cutting machine

  • Download your SVG cut files and then upload them to your cutting software. If you are using Cricut and are new to it, check out my beginner’s guide here.
  • Scale your rosette template on the Design Space canvas to fill an 8.5 x 11 margin or 12 x 12 margin if you are using 12 x 12 paper. You can always downsize if you prefer.
  • Place your paper of choice onto the mat.
  • Load the mat
  • Set material setting to cardstock. Choose light or heavy according to the weight of the paper you chose. Commence cut.

If hand cutting…

  • Print the template directly onto your cardstock and then cut it out with scissors. Or print the templates once onto heavy cardstock and trace with scissors onto your colored cardstock of choice, then cut the design out.
