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 ones
(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…
When I made this rose I was very specific about how I curled the petals. Curling your paper petals is ultimately the key to how your flower will turn out.
If you feel something is off about your flower then just start with studying your curls and see what you can do to improve upon them.
Below I have a video to show you step by step how to create this Scarlet rose beauty. First let’s review supplies so you know what to pick up on your Sunday run to your craft store. My favorite is Michaels!
– 65 pound cardstock in choice color (Paper and More)
– Cutting Machine (optional: click here to see the one I recommend)
– Glue gun (Find it here)
– Wood dowel for rolling
After you acquire your downloads cut out all the layers of petals. You can use the PDFs if you are hand cutting or the SVG cut files for a cutting machine. After cutting you will begin to curl all the petals according the video instructions. Next is layering and assembling you petals. Then finally finding a place to proudly display your rose!
