Paper Blooms: Penelope Rose Tutorial

With Spring in sight, it seemed like the perfect time to try a new rose design, so today, we will be making paper flowers with this Penelope paper rose DIY tutorial.

Helpful Hint: If you’d like to downside the overall size of your flower, just exclude the largest petal size from your assembly & you’ll end up with a smaller completed rose.

Start with XL petal. Cut about a 2 inch slit in the bottom center edge of the petal vertically. Add a touch of glue on one edge and slightly overlap the two pieces.


Use your dowel or marker to roll the top edges of your petal in a downward direction. Do this with all of your XL, large, and medium petals.

Using your 8 sided base piece, begin to glue an X-Large petal to each side of the base. Using an 8 sided base allows us to insure that our flower is symmetrical.

Moving up to our second layer, place a large petal in between each of the extra large petals.
