Layered Paper Rose

Paper Flowers

This will be my third paper rose at this point but I feel like it was the easiest to make.

The rolled paper rose was easier to make but harder to control the offset of the petals.

The giant single petal rose was tedious to make but provided the most control in terms of how the petals looked.

I thought this layered rose was a nice compromise.

I just need to learn how to manage a glue gun better and minimize all the extra little strings of glue.

Materials for Layered Paper Rose

Cardstock – I like a lot of different brands of cardstock. Here are a few of my favorites:

Glue Gun – I like using a glue gun for this project because it dries the fastest and you need that to get each layer in place in a reasonable amount of time.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

Template – I’ve included mine in both SVG and printable formats for free in my resource library.

    Tutorial for Layered Paper Flower

    Step 1: Cut out all the layers from the template.

    I like using the light grip mat for paper projects. I find the standard grip mat too hard to clean.

    Step 2: Curl the petals first

    I like to curl all except the largest 3 pieces inwards.

    Step 3: Glue the opposing petals together overlapping for the smaller template piece.

    Step 4: Glue this center to the middle of the next piece and do the same with the petals.

    Step 5: Keep adding the rest of the layers.

    For the the last three layers, I like to curl the tip of the petal outwards but create a concave edit inward along the middle of the petal.

    That’s about it. It sounds more complicated than it actually is. Just clue each layer together as you see fit.

      • I’m not sure I understand your questions, you can’t find the rolled flower templates in my resource library? It is the first item on the page.
