Step by step instruction to make giant rose:
7 steps to make a giant rose paper flower:
Step 1. Grab your A4 printer paper or cardstock (from 120 to 180gsm).
You could definitely use A3, A2, A1 or A0 to make giant roses, please consider to use heavyweight paper for the larger flower
Step 2. Cut the petals from the template.
You could use your Cricut to cut from SVG template or manually cut the PDF template by your scissors.
For the printer paper version, I cut 18 petals, 1 triangle, and 2 pentagons.
For the cardstock version, I cut 23 petals, 1 triangle, and 3 pentagons.
Color the petal if you want. In the video, I use watercolor for the orange flower and pastel chalk for the pink one, and I love the texture effect of watercolor more.
If you use watercolor, consider drawing water first as it will help to blend your color easier.
Step 3. Glue 3 petals with the triangle for the first layer.
Use a stick to curve the petal and form these 3 petals for the center of the giant rose.
Step 4. For the 2 outer petal layers, glue 5 petals with the pentagon and use a stick to make the petal’s curves.
Then glue each petal to the center accordingly.
Step 5. For the outer layer, cut and shape the petals and glue it to the flower.
Step 6. For the last layer, cut a line to divine the bottom of each petal.
Then glue it to form a curved petal before gluing to the flower.
Step 7. Insert a string to the bottom of the bottom of the flower before covering by a large circle.
This string will help you to hang the giant rose to where you want.

For backdrop arrangement:
Like arranging a centerpiece or a bouquet, the backdrop will be fancier if there have big, medium and small flowers, foliages and fillers, with color harmony. It will be boring if we arrange the same size flowers together, like this, lol.
Materials to make a large/giant rose:
Cricut or scissors.
Printer paper, or cardstock A4 size only
Green color paper (optional as you could color the printer paper)
