I created these Easy Paper Roses for my Queen of Hearts Valentine’s Day party, but these can work for any occasion!
I saw a tutorial on Pinterest for these, but it didn’t go back to the right link, the proper sources weren’t credited and there was no text. I hate it when that happens, so I decided to kind of wing it with these. I love paper flowers, and I knew roses would fit perfectly with my party theme. They were actually way easier than I expected and now I have a whole bin in my craft closet dedicated to paper flowers.I would put these all over my house if red was my color.
I would put these all over my house if red was my color. I will have to make some teal roses STAT!
To make these Paper Roses, you’ll need:
- My FREE Templates
- Card Stock, any color
- Scissors or a Silhouette Cameo (do the cameo…it will make your life so much better!)
- Double Sided Tape
- Hot Glue Gun
- Cut out 5 of the flower templates for each rose. Set aside one circle from the middle of the flowers.
- Fold at each petal for 4 of the flower templates.
- Cut the last one in half so there are 4 petals on each side.
- Fold at each petal for one side of the flower template, and leave the other flat.
- Cut the first template at one petal, then set aside. For each petal after, cut off one more petal until the fourth template has 5 petals.
- Bend each petal so the flower looks like it’s blooming, then tape the end petals together with double sided tape.
- Repeat step 7 for each template.
- When you finish with all the folded pieces, get the flat template and roll it up.
- Get the circle from the middle of one of your flower templates and put hot glue on it.
- Attach the bottom of the flower to the circle, then let the glue dry.
I attached the paper roses to my wall using Command Poster Strips. I love them because they’re inexpensive, super easy to use and durable (without tearing up my walls). I use them ALL THE TIME! If you plan on throwing a lot of parties, or changing up your decor a lot, you need these in your life. I can’t tell you how many paint jobs I ruined before I got these. And no, they are not sponsoring this post, I just love them.
I also took this a step further and printed out red on one side and the polka dot pattern from my Queen of Heart Printables on the other. Takes up a ton of ink, but I’m loving how gorgeous they are!
