Video tutorial to DIY Rose paper flowers
Making paper flowers is a therapeutic activity for me. It helps me to focus on the present moment and forget about my worries. It also makes me feel happy and hopeful.
So that’s why I am fond of making these simple little things.
I made this with the help of Cricut, but you could easily create the cut-out in the rose petal with a punch.
Please follow this step-by-step instruction to DIY your paper lace rose
Step 1: Cut the templates
2 strips, 2 layers of small petals, and 3 layers of cut-out-petal will be needed for each lace rose flower.
I cut the largest lace layer to be about 8 inches wide for this flower. Please keep the ratio of all the items when you scale the size of the template.
Here are my Cricut tips and tricks to cut these intricated templates perfectly.
Step 2: Scroll the paper strips of paper and make the center flower.
Tips: Try to roll the strips as close as you can in the center, while the outer could be loosened a little bit.
Glue the 2 layers of small petals to that roll accordingly.
Please refer to my paper rose video tutorial for a clearer view.
Step 3: Apply 3 layers of cut-out-petals.
Try to use the awl to form the petal curves before applying these 3 layers.
The space between each layer is very important, it’s close to each other for the inner layers and the space is bigger for the outer layers.
And pay attention to where I glued each petal for each layer to have the flower form as I wanted.
Here is the final flower
and you can spay it and add some leaves like this
