We have seen these excellent paper roses all over Pinterest, wedding web blogs and E-commerce site alike, yet we are presently euphoric to get the opportunity to share a real, well ordered instructional exercise on the best way to make these flawless paper blooms!
These little wonders could make for one amazing, unique DIY bunch [a comparable DIY paper bloom bundle here], or simply utilize them a lovely centerpiece thought for a gathering. In any case, these blooms shake my socks and we cannot hold up to discover a reason to make some [more than likely from pages of a Harry Potter book, of course]. A special thanks to Josa Cunanan Elegado, for making & sharing this awesome DIY tutorial with us!
DIY Tutorial Of Paper Roses From Wastage Books or Sheet Of Paper
- A sheet of paper
- Paper cutter and/or scissor and ruler
Step 1. Start by cutting the paper into 4 inch squares. Here we have measured it by ruler and cut it by scissor.
Step 2. After you cut three pieces the same size, you’ll fold them all the way I did below. First you fold them in half like this…
Step 3. Then, you fold them again, and again, so they’re a nice little triangle.
Step 4. Take your pencil, and draw a pattern on there, so you’ll cut the top rounded, and then cut the tip off, as well. Use this one as a pattern for your other two pieces. You should have Four pieces cut out, looking like this when you unfold them.
Step 6. Take some glue, and put it on one petal, then you’ll take the next side and overlap petals to make it stick.
You will glue all the pieces, except for two: the piece with one petal, and the piece with two.
Step 7. Here is where the Pen comes into play. Take a pen and use it to curl the petals after you’ve glued them. You’ll also curl the pieces with just one and two petals, and you should end up with the following pieces…[look at the next photo down….]
Step 8. Now you’ll assemble the rose. The piece with 7 petals will go inside the piece with 8 petals, and so on and so forth. To assemble, put glue on the outside of the smaller piece, and place it inside the rose. Alternate the petals, so your petals aren’t right on top of each other. Once you have all the pieces in the rose, let it dry for a bit before you put the twine in for the stem. For the twine, I cut a piece [this had wire in it as well], then just bent the top over so it wouldn’t slide all the way through, slid it through the center of the rose, and it stayed quite nicely.
Step 9. Once you get the hang of making these, it doesn’t take long. Like, for instance, this bouquet only took me all day. [Just kidding! It probably took me 10 min per flower]. Here you can watch it full tutorial of paper flower.
