Cut Out The Rose Petal Templates

You can use a cutting machine like Cricut or a pair of scissors with PDF printables. I use seven rose petals per paper rose.

Adding Distress Ink To Your Petals

To distress the petals, ink your brush and gently rub the ink onto the petal in a circular motion on each petal point.

To curl your paper rose petals use a wood dowel or a pen/pencil to wrap each petal point around the dowel so it curls.

To build the paper rose, open out two of your petal layers. Then, glue one on top of the other, alternating the petal points.
