Updated on June 19, 2013

Don't go out and buy expensive paper flower embellishments. Do what I do and make them yourself! I love making handmade paper roses. With the vast selection of gorgeous papers to choose from, you can come up with many different looks. Maybe you aren't the crafty type but that is okay. These paper roses are super easy, much easier than you may think and once you get the hang of it, you will be making tons of them in no time!

Here are a few ideas about things you can embellish using your handmade paper roses:

  • chunky greeting cards
  • scrapbook layouts
  • decorating canvas
  • make wreaths
  • topiaries
  • embellish clothespins
  • garlands
  • shadow boxes

What You Will Need:

  • Cardstock
  • Flower Paper Punch with 5 or 6 petals
  • Skewer or something else similar
  • Glue gun or another fast drying glue
  • Scissors - optional for distressing or petal shaping

STEP ONE

Select whatever card stock you want to use for your roses and then punch five flower shapes out of the card stock.

If you don't have a flower shaped punch, you can use scissors to cut out five flower shapes, just make sure they are all the same size and shape with at least 5 petals.

STEP TWO

At this point, I like to distress the edges of each of my flower shapes. I do this by taking my small scissors and scraping one of the blades around all the edges of the flower. It just makes the edges of the paper a bit thicker and gives the finished rose a little bit of a distressed look. This is completely optional, so if you prefer, you can move on to the next step. Your rose will still look fabulous!

STEP THREE

Now it's time to form the rose. Take one of the flower shapes and put the tip of the skewer in the center of one of the petals with the point right in the middle of the flower and then wrap the petal around the skewer so that it bends into a sort of U shape. Then repeat with all the petals. Once you have all the petals done, take 2 petals opposite each other and bend them into each other and glue in place. Then glue the rest of the petals up against the 2 center petals. See the illustrations below. This will be the center of your rose!

Curl the petals around the skewer.

Pull 2 opposite petals up, add some hot glue and join them together.

STEP FOUR

Take another flower shape and use the skewer to curl the side of each petal inward and make sure it's the same side on each petal. This will be the second layer to your rose.

If you are using textured paper be sure to curl the textured side of the paper on this step.

Now take another punched flower and use the skewer to curl the petal inward on one side. Repeat with each petal.
Now take another punched flower and use the skewer to curl the petal inward on one side. Repeat with each petal.

STEP FIVE

Now you have 3 more flower shapes left. Pick one up and take the skewer and use it to curl the sides of each petal under. Make sure to curl the same side on each petal.

If you are using textured paper, be sure to have the textured side up when curling the sides of each petal under.

Now with the last remaining flower shapes, curl one side of each petal under with the skewer.
Now with the last remaining flower shapes, curl one side of each petal under with the skewer.

STEP SIX

Okay, now you are ready to build your rose! First, take the first shape that you formed into the center piece and put a dot of glue on the bottom and stick it on top of the next shape you did, where you curled each petal inward and then fold the petals upward and around the center. You will see the rose starting to form.

Now what you have left is the three flower shapes that you curled each petal under. Take one of those and put a dot of glue on the center and glue it onto the bottom of the rose, making sure the petals are curled under and then fold the petals upward slightly.

For the last two shapes, do the very same thing (glue under and fold up slightly) and be sure to keep staggering the petals so that the rose will be nice and full!

Glue the middle of the rose you formed onto the 2nd flower shape that you curled inward.
Glue the middle of the rose you formed onto the 2nd flower shape that you curled inward.
Fold the 2nd flower shape up around the middle
Fold the 2nd flower shape up around the middle
Now you have three left, take one and glue it (curled side of petals pointing down just like in photo) under the first 2.
Now you have three left, take one and glue it (curled side of petals pointing down just like in photo) under the first 2.
This is what it should look like after you have glued the 3rd one under.

Now, fold each of the petals upward.
Now, fold each of the petals upward.
Now glue another one under, curled side facing down, making sure to alternate the petals.
Now glue another one under, curled side facing down, making sure to alternate the petals.
Glue the last one under (curled sides facing down) making sure to alternate with the petals already glued on and viola! Your beautiful handmade rose is finished.

Wondering how to get the shabby or tattered look?

If you want more of a shabby or tattered look to your rose, you can cut jagged edges on the tips of each petal before curling and putting the rose together. I have also cut very small scallops and zig zags on the tip of each petal and each one looks a little different when the rose is all finished. Have fun and experiment with it.. find the look that you like.

That is it!

Now you have made a gorgeous paper rose and how easy was that?!

        WoW! Super, well-described tutorial. I have one similar, but the middle "bud" is a little sloppy and not as well-defined as yours. I love making paper roses also and agree they are addictive. I'll definitely try out yours tomorrow, as it's after 11 PM here and too late to start ...I'll not want to stop. Take care and Happy New Year.

        Really an amazing hub on hand made works! Not everybody can get the opportunity of growing roses in their house. For them this tutorial can be a good consolation. At least they can make roses with their own hand! All the steps are described perfectly. Even an amateur can be greatly boosted from this post and start to make paper roses. Also the author has described in short about how to get the perfect look briefly in the end. So if you are a rose lover and want to fill your room with handmade roses, don’t waste any time!

I love your pics and all the different colors of flowers. So pretty. I also like the distressed flowers the best. I'm pinning this for later :)

        Step-by-step instructions and pictures were easily understood, and your roses are simply lovely. I am curious about the textured cardstock you had...does it have a 'name'? Loved all the varied colors and indeed, each rose is beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

        Oh wow! These look really nice. I have made tissue paper flowers before with a group of children for mother's day gifts. They turned out okay, but I really like these much better. Thanks for the great hub.

        Beautiful roses! You always have such nice step-by-step instructions and nice photos in your tutorials. Thanks for the inspiration. (btw- made the glimmer mist and folded some envelopes. Do you have a bone folder? These are great for folding a bit heavier card stock, like I used for the envelopes.)
