Tips For Making A Paper Rose

  • Firstly, if you want the same size paper rose that I have, you don’t need to resize them at all and you can get two per printer sized pieces of colored paper and 4 per 12×12.
  • Secondly, watch the roses video to learn how to roll your roses.
  • In conclusion, use thick card stock paper for more a firm paper rose, or lighter card stock if you want to give it more texture and folds.

I was amazed at how easy it was to make these roses and how super cute they looked finished.

I made these beautiful paper rose shadow boxes for Mother’s day and my customers really loved them.

You can make these as small or as large as you like. 

And with this tutorial, you will definitely be able to add a little beauty to so many things. 

To sum it up, the possibilities are endless! Add a little glitter and give them some sparkle, dip the tips into a little paint or ink and recolor the edges, even use patterned paper to give it a more unique look.

I have plans of my own for teachers’ gifts, wedding bouquets, and even more shadow boxes.
