Introduction: How to Make "Post It Notes" Roses

About: Retired, doing art work now. Great. Have the time and the money to spend doing what I want to do.

In this instructable, easily made roses are made out of post it notes. Any colored paper will do, of course, but these note pads seem to be everywhere, esp. at work!

Step 1: Materials Needed

Gather your post it notes, or colored paper, scissors, glue, forceps or tweezers, etc.

Step 2: Cut Flower Parts

Starting with the pink notes, cut two or three circles from the note. Make them all different sizes, so that they will fit together properly.

Step 3: Roll Circles Into a Cone Shape.

Self explanatory, what you want is a cone shaped unit that is glued on one end and then added into another unit, or rolled piece of paper.

Step 4: Cut Paper for Exterior Pedals

Cut the note into thirds as shown. The part on the right is the sticky part, which we don't want.

Step 5: Put All Parts Together

After all parts are glued as shown, it's time to put them altogether into the final flower.

Step 6: Three Roses Are Made

I made two pink and one yellow-white rose. The three roses are joined together with short strips of paper, gluing one rose to another in the back.

Step 7: Make Some Leaves for Your Roses

Using the same green note paper, or a similar light paper, place three pieces together so that we cut three leaves at one time.

Step 8: Cut Leaves Out

See picture

Step 9: Completed Roses and Leaves

The roses and leaves are glued together simply by arranging the leaves in a pattern that looks natural. Try a dry run, then glue each leaf in turn into it's position on the roses.

Step 10: Add Embellishments If Desired

If you want to make a corsage, or wall hanging, you can add a few embellishments such as ribbons.

    i dont have any glue, so i kept the sticky edge on as a way to stick all the bits together. it might not be as durable, but it works for now

    Hey, I used your flower technique and added a stem, leaves and thorns of my own and gave it to my wife for V-Day. She absolutely loved it! Quote: "I love this even more than if you would have bought me flowers because you took the time to actually make something like this for me....*kiss*" Thanks mate for a great instructable, you saved my V-Day and saved me some $!
