Tutorial for backdrop rose from printer paper, FREE template

DIY large roses from plain printer paper for your event backdrop with my full video tutorial and FREE template. So easy, so simple yet beautiful. Why not DIY wedding or party decor?

Video tutorial:

Instruction:

For the flower

  1. Grab your A4 printer paper, we need 18 pages for each flower. You could definitely use A3, A2, A1 or A0 to make giant roses, please consider to use heavy weight paper for larger flower.
  2. Cut the petals along the template
  3. Color the petal with watercolor as instructed. I use watercolor for the orange flower and pastel chalk for the pink one, and I love the texture effect of watercolor more. ย If you use watercolor, consider drawing water first as it will help to blend your color easier.
  4. For the center, glue 3 petals with the triangle
  5. For the 2 outer petal layers, glue 5 petals with the pentagonย and use a stick to make the petal’s curves.
  6. For the last outer layer, cut and shape the petals and glue it the the flower.

For the leaf:

We could use green color paper and color the edge with red watercolor or use printer paper to color the same

Use the edge of scissor to make the leaf vein and curves.

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.

    Your flowers are so beautiful and I love that they’re made from simple materials. I have been searching for info on how to make a flexible stem for an extra large rose (or any other large flower). Any ideas that don’t include chicken wire?

    Many thanks

      Thank you for passing by, Teresa. People used to cut the template on a cardstock and save it for next time. Then you use the cardstock as the pattern on your printer paper.

    Hello Dreamy Posy,

    I just discovered your awesome creations on YouTube.

    Your flowers are lovely and your tutorials make them looks very do-able. I’m going to give them a try for my mom’s 95th birthday party.

    Before I rush out to buy my printer paper, can you tell me what size to buy….8.5″X11″ or something larger?

    Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us!

      Oh hello Marilyn, I’m so thrilled to hear your mom’s 95th birthday party. Wish her all the best.
      I always try to make my flower from simple materials, so all my templates are designed for A4 (8.5″x11″) or A5 size only. But if you want to use giant rose from A3 size, please consider to use heavier weight one. ๐Ÿ™‚
