Paper Rose

How to make realistic paper roses from various papers and materials.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes


  • scissors
  • paper
  • glue
  • marker(s) or pens
  • floral wire
  • forceps


    Cut out pieces of rose as follows. One rose is made from a recycled grocery bag (kraft paper).
    1. Ad

      You want 3 outer petals, 4 inner petals and 2 or 3 leaves.

    2. Pieces are manipulated to resemble rose petals/leaves.

    3. Following photos, the outer petals are cut out, a small cut is made in the bottom of the petal. The resulting two pieces are glued by drawing one edge over the other.

    4. The top edges of the petal are curled with scissors and your thumb.

    5. The inner pedals: cut 3 or 4 circles as shown. The center is cut out so that you have a round piece as shown.

    6. Using forceps, wind petal around itself, so that a cone shape is made.

    7. Glue in one spot at the end of the circle. Hold until dry. (7-10 sec.)

    8. Glue the three outer petals together at the bases.

    9. Add three strips to inner cones that have been glued together. These will allow the fastening of the cones to the outer petals.

    10. Add two or three leaves by cutting patterns, serrating the edges with scissors, and gluing to the bottom of the petal structure.

    Rose(s) can be used for corsages, display, or in floral arrangements.

Looks a little complicated...

These are really beautiful! I am guessing that both pliers or even tweezers would work as alternatives to the forceps.

redhaterb, gree. I'd also like to see how the "leaves and petals" look cut before the finished product. Tweezers would work just fine. I have locking forceps I found at a yard sale.
