How sweet it is to receive a bouquet of roses! The only drawback is that cut roses don’t last long. With this tutorial, I will show you how to make paper roses that look like the real deal! You can enjoy them for years and years!! This is a fairly standardized way to make paper roses, however, add your own creativity to make it unique!

                                                                  


Supplies Needed:

bouquetPaper (printing or resume paper works well – any color)

Small Kid’s Paintbrush (will use handle to curl petals)

Glue (may use school glue or hot glue)

Ruler (to measure paper)

Template (shown below)

Scissors

Pencil

All of the step-by-step instructions (with pictures) are shown in the video at the bottom of this page. Also, click on the free template below and press CTRL + P simultaneously on your keyboard to print. May need to scale to size. Or, you can simply make your own template that looks similar to a half-heart shape. If you have any questions or need help with a particular step, please leave me a comment below.

Also, it’s fun to embellish these roses with leaves, glitter, and stems. You can use any color or pattern of paper you choose. Maybe a polka dot or even a newspaper print pattern would suit you? Maybe a simple yet classic red rose? The choice is yours! You can also vary the size of the roses as long as they begin in a square with the same measurement all the way around. In the video tutorial, I used 5×5″ papers to make mine – but you can make them smaller or larger. Have fun!
