rose methods like none other. This is one of the first ones I came across, and it is
my favorite for several reasons. It is quicker and less complicated than others, and the
result is gorgeous! Not only that, but think about the money saved on flowers
when you make your own from paper, and they won’t die. Perfect!
I found the full tutorial at Ellinee, with free printable templates.
I have made paper roses using this method from cardstock, printer paper
and coffee filters. They are all stunning, but heavyweight cardstock
makes the prettiest flowers in my opinion. I like to chalk the edges
in a bright, contrasting color like here…
I just love it!!!
Here is one I made from coffee filters and painted with watercolor.
Since I need my roses with a stem for the centerpieces, I followed the tutorial linked
above, except I built the rose around a floral wire like I showed you
in this paper flower tutorial a couple of weeks back.
This is my favorite! Remember it from this decorating with vintage
scrapbooking ephemera post?
Do you have a favorite paper flower tutorial?
I would love your ideas!
