Wonderful Paper Roses
You can refresh your homedecor in some easy and cheap ways. here`s one idea for you. We`re going to make paper roses. They`re super! You can make the whole bouquet or use them as decoration for gifts. Let`s follow some easy steps and enjoy the process.
Things you need:
- 8.5 X 11″ cardstock
- Hot glue
Patterns for you:
Create 3 petal patterns from the flower template. Think heart shapes, make them wide and not too long. I used chipboard so that my patterns last longer, but you can just use cardstock paper. You can also download the free paper rose pattern in the links provided.
Trace each petal and cut 4 at the same time. You’ll need 12 petals altogether. Cut a slit at the center bottom of your petals vertically.
For the center of the paper flower, cut a circle about 8.5″ wide. Scallop the edges like petals as you cut. Cut a spiral into the circle creating scalloped petals as you make your way to the center.
Begin rolling the center paper flower and hot glue it down once you reach the center.
Overlap and glue the flaps of each petal. This makes the petals more three dimensional.
Start with the smallest petals and glue them to the small flower opposite each other.
Fold some of the petals over, use a dowel to round some of the edges of the petals.
