PAPER ROSE DIY WITH TEMPLATE

by Johnnie Collier

Paper crafts

As promised, here is the paper rose tutorial I teased you with at the end of

Monday’s rose embellished frame tutorial.  You can use any decorative scrapbook paper you want,

but it should have print on both sides.  I like to ink the edges of the petals and

leaves with distress ink pads.  The possibilities are endless, so raid those scrapbooking

supplies and lets make some gorgeous roses!

SUPPLIES:

SCRAPBOOK PAPER (double sided)

CRAFT GLUE

FLORAL WIRE

FLORAL TAPE

PETAL & LEAF TEMPLATE (PRINT AND CUT OUT)

SCISSORS

BAMBOO SKEWER





WHEN YOU ROLL THE PETALS, DO 3 AT A TIME BY STACKING THEM

AND ROLLING THEM TOGETHER.  SLIDE THE BAMBOO STICK OUT,

LEAVING A “TUBE” OF ROLLED UP PETALS.

STRAIGHTEN THEM OUT TO GLUE BASE AND FOLD

AROUND FLORAL WIRE IN NEXT STEP.



ADD LEAVES IN DESIRED POSITION

DOWN STEM WITH FLORAL TAPE

 


Aren’t they FABULOUS?

Mother’s Day gift… check.

PURPLE? 

Absolutely.

Best part… they live forever!
