This paper rose tutorial is so easy and it’s for a beginner, with the free templates.
I have seen so many people made this rose successful right at the first time. Their tip is just opening the video and playing with replay/stop quite many times while imitating each step. So all you need is just a little bit of patience. 🙂

6 steps to make a paper rose flower:
Step 1. Cut 4 layers of pink paper with the free template.
You can choose any color paper you want, I made some with printer paper 80gsm (21lbs). But I found that paper from 120 gsm (32 lbs) to 160gsm works better for this rose.
The free template is in both PDF and SVG files now.
Step 2. Use the edge of the scissor to curve the petal
Try to curl both sides of the petals.
Step 3. Use wire gauge20 to glue with the layers accordingly. Please refer to video instruction.
A small cool glue on the head of the wire will help to fix the stem with the flower.
Tips: Try to keep the center as the lowest point of the flower. You could trim out the petal in this first layer a little bit, just about 2mm lower than the next layer.
Then apply the other layers as video instruction. My poor English could not help to describe these step.
Step 4. Finish the sepal, receptacle and the stem of paper rose.
Cut the sepal template on green paper color and glue at the bottom of the flower.
Wrap a small strip of tissue paper to form the receptacle.
Use the green floral tape to wrap all the sepal and the stem.
3 steps to make paper rosebuds:
- I made 2 types of the rosebud. The first one will need 1 layer (5 petals) only.
- The second rosebud will need 2 layers (equals 10 petals)
- Following the steps of making rose flower above to finish the buds
You could make this paper rose bud as pretty paper boutonniere.
5 steps to make the paper rose leaves:
- Cut the leaf with the template
- Use my technique in the video to cut the edge of the leaf will help the leaf be more realistic
- Use the head of the scissor to create the leaf’s vein
- Glue the leaf with the wire gauge26 by white glue
- Arrange 5 leaves to make a rose branch.
