How To Make Paper Roses

(Also see this project at by clicking HERE.)


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)



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!
