I thought today I’ll do a little tutorial on creating a paper rose as it seems they might feature a bit in the tutorials over the next few weeks ...

These flowers up vast amounts of paper .

So here we go ...

Materials used

  • Today I’m using intensive red plain card 160gsm (for this flower I would recommend a paper weight of at least 220gsm - 290gsm)
  • Cutting mat
  • Cricut cutting machine
  • Glue gun

Start by cutting your petals .

Now start by curling the center into itself and glue it together .

Try to clear up as much as the residue as possible so it look as clean as possible .

Repeat this till all 4 are secured as your center should look something like this .

And then repeat the steps filling in the gaps .

Continue this process till the flower looks a bit full.

Now place you pre made centre in the middle ..

Your flower should now look like this .

As I mentioned before this flower is fairly complex do it might take a few try’s before you get to a place where you like your flower .

But guess what, practice will make this one perfect ...
