Rolled Paper Roses

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 277 Posts

Placed on thin branches, these easy roses make a nice table decoration for Valentine's Day. They would also make great package toppers and could be used for other purposes.


Approximate Time: about 20 minutes


  • colored card stock
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks


  1. Cut out a 6-inch circle from card stock. The larger the circle, the larger and fuller your flower will be.
  2. Begin cutting the circle into a spiral pattern. As you cut, try to create a scalloped edge by cutting the pattern in a wavy motion.
  3. Spiral cut circle for rose.

  4. Starting at the outer edge of the spiral, begin rolling the spiral very tightly.
  5. Begin to roll from outer edge.
    Tight roll.


  6. Once you reach the center and have it wound tightly, release it and it will loosen slightly to look like a rose.
  7. Apply a small amount of glue to the bottom to hold it together.
  8. Finished rose.

  9. Attach several to thin branches and place in a vase for a centerpiece, or use one or more as package toppers, to decorate picture frames, use on scrapbook pages, etc.
  10. Four roses attached to branch.
