Step by step tutorial to make a paper rose, old version
- Cut the petals 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.
On each flower, we will need 4 pink 5-petal- layers and 1 green sepal. The free template is in both PDF and SVG files now.
Updated version: we will need 4 layers with 2 sizes for each rose flower. We will use the smaller size for the 1st and 4th layers, and the larger one for the 2nd and 3rd layers.
- Form the curves of the petals
Use the edge of the scissor to curve the petal. Try to curl both sides of the petals.
Updated: Please use the big gluestick and stylus to form the petals
- Assemble the petals
Glue the wire gauge#20 to the first layer. A small cool glue on the head of the wire will help to fix the stem with the flower.
Use your fingers and glue gun to attache the next layers accordingly. Please refer to video instruction for clearer view
Updated: Folding the pentagon shape at the bottom of each layer will help the flower be in precise shape. It’s important to see where I glue at each layer, and how to curl the petals that help the flower in natural forms.
- 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.
Then wrap a small strip of tissue paper to form the receptacle.
Use the green floral tape to wrap all the sepal and the stem.
Updated: Please see the tutorial here to see how to assemble the stem easier.
- Make the rose bud
I made 2 types of the rosebud. The first one will need 1 layer (5 petals) only.
And the second rosebud will need 2 layers (equals 10 petals)
Following the steps of making rose flower above to finish the buds
Updated: The new rose bud is made from just one layer. It is just like the first layer of the flower.
- Make the paper rose leaves
Cut the leaf with the template.
Then 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
Then glue the leaf with the wire gauge26 by white glue
After finishing the single leaves, arrange 5 leaves to make a rose branch.
You could find the tissue paper rose tutorial for my latest technique to make these rose leaves.
The above paper rose I made from updated version template, just curl the 3rd and 4th layers in different direction. And that leaf template is the first one of the SVG file.
