Today I am sharing with you a brand new small paper rose tutorial! This is my first DIY paper roses tutorial that I am exclusively using metallic paper cardstock. I absolutely love the shine it gives to a flower.

This new Annabelle rose is a real beauty and I am approaching the building method a little bit different than my other small flowers. In fact, this small rose design follows more a giant paper rose structure.

Below is the list of supplies you will need and a full picture tutorial. You can also scroll down and watch the full video!

How to make small paper roses

Assemble Your Small Paper Roses

To get started cut out 8 paper rose petal layers. You can distress the edges of the rose with some pink or red ink to add some extra dimension and color. This is optional of course.

Fold 2 of the 5 petal points around each other so that they are hugging and secure with glue. Fold up the remaining 3 and secure them with glue also. For the rest of the 7 petal layers, you need to curl all the petal points inwards with your wood dowel.

Place the first bud center on top of one of the curled petal layers with the curl side down. Glue it to the center. Repeat the steps by folding each point up and securing it with glue. Try to pinch the paper a bit to leave some space between the folds.

At this point, you should have repeated this once more and have used 3 of your 8 petal layers.

Adding a stem to your paper rose

Using your 18 gauge wire, fashion a small circle at the top then fold it at a 90-degree angle. Glue this circle wire to the base of the rosebud as shown. Be generous with your glue and hold till dry.

For the 4 of the 5 last petals thread them up the wire and secure them with a bit of glue on the underside of the flower by punching a hole through the center with your wire. Make sure your curled side is up

When you get to the 8th petal layer thread it up the stem so that the curl side is now facing down and secure with glue. If desired, glue some greenery to the underside as well.

Enjoy your DIY paper roses! Be sure to watch the full video tutorial above to see how it is all done step by step!
