Paper roses and other flowers are super popular right now, especially with the popularity of the Cricut. And the Cricut also makes it so easy so to cut.
How To Make Paper Roses
And if you are wanting to learn how to make roses out of paper, then you are in the right place. With just a few supplies you can make beautiful roses for you to use in shadow boxes, on cards even wedding bouquets.
I posted a video on my Instagram the other day, it was a time lapse of me making a paper rose, I was asked for a tutorial so many times that I decided to give it to you.
What you need to make a rose out of paper is:
Spatula or weeding tool (to help get them off the matt)
Light Grip Mat
Cricut Cardstock Sampler
Hot Glue Gun
Needle nose tweezers (to roll them)
and they are super easy if you use my rose template. All you have to do is load the template to Cricut Design Space and cut. Depending on the size you are going for you may have to adjust the diy paper rose template.
If you want the same size that I have you don’t need to resize them at all and you can get 2 per printer sized pieces of colored paper and 4 per 12×12.
Watch the roses video to learn how to roll your roses.
I was amazed at how easy it was to make these roses and how super cute they looked finished.
