Paper Rose Tutorial

This week I learned a great new technique! I learned how to make a beautiful paper rose! Its perfect to add a personalized touch to any scrapbook layout, card, whatever your heart desires! Its easy to do, and you can make it in a variety of sizes and colors. Try it out!

Materials Needed:

I used patterned paper, but any cardstock will do. Scissors, stapler, pencil, ink and glue dots are also needed.

Step One:

On the back of the paper draw a 5 petal flower. You will need to draw 4 large, and 4 small blooms. Then cut them all out.

Step Two:

Ink the edges of your blooms.

Step Three:
Fold each bloom in half and staple at the fold. Notice the bloom with an arrow in the second picture. That is your last small bloom. Quarter that bloom and staple.
Step Four:

Crinkle up each bloom.
Step Five:

Unfold each bloom. Try using the pencil or your fingers to round each petal upwards.
Step 6:
Starting with your large blooms, place a glue dot on the center and layer them. Then add the small blooms, saving your quartered one for last. The quartered bloom will be the flower's center. And, Viola!! You have created a beautiful paper rose!!
This idea was originally from another scrap blogger....check her out in the blogs I follow under "What a Beautiful Mess"
