Hello Friends, Today am going to share with you all the tutorial of making paper rose. I will also share with you some pics of the bouquet which I made using these roses. So lets get started!! ( Picture heavy post)

  1. Colour paper ( I printed these colour papers from net)
  2. Pencil
  3. Scissors
  4. Glue gun
  5. Toothpick or Quilling tool

Initially cut a six petal flower from the colour paper. Using this as the template cut three more flowers. Totally we need 4 flowers for making rose.
At the back side of the flower draw lines joining the petals. Here I used one sided colour paper so the back side is white in colour.

First we need to cut off one petal from 2 flowers ( we need 2 five petal flower). Draw a curve as shown on the picture and cut the petal leaving the curved area. This curved space is for sticking the petals together.

Repeat the same process and cut off two petals .( We need 1 four petal flower)

Similarly cut off three petals from the fourth flower ( We need 1 three petal flower)

Cut three single petals from the colour paper. Using a toothpick curl on both the edges of the petal. Do not curl the entire petal.

Repeat the same process for all the flowers. After curling the petals it looks like this (see pic 2). As you can see in this pic we have 3 single petals, 1 three petal flower , 1 four petal flower and 2 five petal flowers.

Take a single petal , apply glue at the tip and  roll it using a toothpick. 

Take the other 2 single petals and attach on two sides of the rolled bud. 
Now take the three petal flower apply glue at the flap ( Curved portion) and stick the petals.

Similarly apply glue at the flap of all the flowers and stick the petals together. 
Glue the bud to the three petal flower off centered. 

Similarly glue four petal flower and finally the five petal flowers. Thus the paper rose is ready.

I made another rose using pink colour paper.

I totally enjoyed making these bright smiling and full bloom roses so made a bouquet of paper roses.  I used orange , white and red colour papers respectively.

Now coming to the vase , its actually made by recycling a ghee bottle.

This is the original plastic bottle and I recycled this into a vase by covering it with colourful washi tapes.

I also stamped a sentiment Thank you on the vase.

These paper roses are super easy to make but a little patience is required. Does'nt these roses look like real ones?? 

Now this flower bouquet decorates my coffee table. This flower bouquet is perfect for gifting as they look beautiful and also the making cost is very very less. These roses are great for scrapbooking. Below are the links to some of my projects in which I have used these roses.
This tutorial was inspired from Elli blog.
