DIY Paper Rose

PaperRoseGiftTopper

Happy July everyone! Let’s start the month off with another version of a paper flower. . . the all time favorite and my first flower to make for blog readers. . . the paper rose. Ice Silver, Rose Quartz, and Red Lacquer will make some classic white, pink and red roses, but I can imagine some beautiful yellow roses using this same metallic paper in Lime. I suggest you use a letter or text weight paper as the card stock or even scrapbook paper does not curl as smoothly. The wire stem makes the rose very useful as you can add it into a bouquet or trim and curl the wire end. If you want to make a rose without the stem, you can refer to my How to Make a Paper Rose video. The only difference is using a florist wire or a removable bamboo skewer to create your rose center. You can download and print onto your selected paper the rose and the leaf pattern below and visit my blog to get the full tutorial! Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. Gorgeous. This would be such a nice project for bridesmaids. They could have a girls night in and make their own bouquets that would last so much longer than fresh flowers. And any petals that didn’t curl just right could be scattered down the aisle. It almost makes me wish I was planning a wedding! In primary colors or non-metallic papers, these would make a nice craft for children too.
