How to Make Small Paper Roses. Step by step Camellia Rose tutorial with templates. Use the SVG flower template with your Cricut machine or hand cut with the PDF printables.

Last year you all went totally crazy for my free giant Camellia paper rose template, so I was thinking about teaching you how to make small paper roses as a Camellia style?!

I did a lot of troubleshooting with this Camillia paper rose design before I released it because I wanted to get those delicate petal layers to look just perfect!

I’ve been loving this metallic cardstock paper lately. I first used it with my Anabelle classic rose that came out last month. This metallic frosted-looking paper adds such a pretty shimmer to the flower’s petals!

My new paper Camellia rose design works fabulously for arrangements, bouquets, and wreaths! Check out how I build a paper flower bouquet here!

How to Make Small Paper Camellia Roses

  1. Get your Camellia rose petals cut out. Two of the 6-point petals. Five of the 7-point petals.
  2. For two of the 6-point petals, crease each petal point slightly down the middle.
  3. Curl each side of the creased petal point backward with a wood dowel. Do this with only two of the 6-point petals.
  4. Layer together the two 6-point petals— alternating the petal points.
  5. Curl all of the 7-point petals upwards around your dowel.
  6. Choose two petal points that are opposite each other and fold and wrap them up around each other, as if they were hugging, then secure with glue. Fold up the other five-petal points around the center we created and attach with a bit of glue to the inside base of each petal point.
  7. Layer in the remaining four 7-point petals—alternating petal points.
  8. Glue in the Camellia rosebud centerpiece.
