In this instructable we will see how to make paper roses

Step 1: Cut Paper

Picture of Cut Paper

  • We need 3 square pieces of paper for making one rose
  • Take one A4 size craft paper and fold diagonally to make a square
  • Trim and remove the excess. Now you can cut the left over square piece into four smaller pieces
  • Take three of the smaller square pieces of paper for making rose

Step 2: Fold the Paper

  • Take one square piece of paper and fold it diagonally
  • Make two more diagonal folds as shown

Step 3: Mark and Cut

  • Mark a semi-circle as shown on the middle.
  • Cut and remove the top portion
  • Cut a small hole at the bottom
  • Now open up the paper and you will have a flower shape with a hole at center

Cut all three of the pieces like this

Step 4: Cut Segments

  • Take one flower shape, cut and remove one segment from it
  • Take the second flower shape, cut and remove two segments from it
  • Take the last flower shape, cut and remove three segments from it

You can see all cut pieces arranged in the last picture

Step 5: Curl Edges

  • Using a plastic needle or a tooth pick, curl edges of all pieces outwards. Please see the curled pieces in the last picture

Step 6: Glue Edges

  • Take the first three larger pieces from which we cut and removed segments
  • Apply glue on one segment, fold and glue the adjacent segment over the glued portion
  • Apply glue on edges of other three smaller pieces we removed from the flower shape, roll and press
  • Allow the glue to dry

Now we have all six pieces of the rose shapes as seen in last picture

Step 7: Arrange Petals and Glue

  • Take the largest piece and place the second largest inside. Do not apply glue immediately
  • Arrange all other glued pieces inside. Adjust each piece in a different manner to see how they can be glued to make look like real one
  • Apply glue lightly and stick each piece separately
  • Our Paper rose is ready. Please see the finished one in the picture above

You can make roses with different colored papers and arrange them in a flower vase with other real flowers and leaves

It was easy to follow and suprisingly simple to do. They turned out looking great.

Very, very nice effect! One question: it looks like your cutting edges are slightly ragged. Was that intentional? I think it adds to the realism, and was wondering how you achieved that. Also, what kind of glue did you use?
