Making Paper Flower Rosettes

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, wreathes and more. It’s no wonder so many of my followers want know how to make paper rosettes!

Today I am sharing with you my easy paper rosette tutorial and gifting you one of my files for free in the subscriber library! You can also pick up the full set of 10 here! This one is a best-seller, so I think you all will love it! The freebie is available below.

The finished size of one rosette will measure approximately 3-4 inches. But you can always roll more than one together to increase size! Check out how I do that here with my Sunflower video tutorial.

If using a cutting machine

  • Download your SVG cut files and then upload them to your cutting software. If you are using Cricut and 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 mat.
  • Load the mat
  • Set material setting to cardstock. Choose light or heavy according to the weight of paper you chose. Commence cut.

If hand cutting…

  • Print the template directly onto your cardstock and then cut 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.
