How to Make Paper Roses: Easy Step-by-Step Tutorial

Every time I sit down and start to think about a new flower design, my mind always wanders to roses. I’ve designed many large and small rose templates but started thinking maybe it would be nice to create something that is kinda in between. Most of my larger roses measure 17-19 inches and the smaller roses (great for bouquets) measure about 3-4 inches.
So I was thinking, how about a 9-inch rose? Something that would be a stunning addition to a large table centerpiece or a filler for a backdrop between larger designs. After all, everyone wants to know how to make paper roses.
Enter Scarlet Rose…
