Make a Long Stemmed Red Rose for Your Valentine

Paper Red RoseValentine’s day is just weeks away so I just have to share my long stemmed version of the red watercolor paper rose. So lush and gorgeous and red is trending this year on the red carpet. The red watercolor template is ready for you to print with a laser printer onto regular copy paper. The PDF includes a front and back so your rose is a full bloom red. The green leaves are set up the same way, ready to print two sides of the paper. (Note that when you open the download in your browser the color is WAY off, but once you download to your computer and open in Adobe Acrobat, they show the right color). If you are wanting to make a long stemmed rose with your own colored or printed paper, you can download that outline template PDF here. Once you have your paper/template ready, just follow my step-by-step tutorial below. You can also follow my paper rose video and use the wire in place of the skewer for your long stem. You can make just one to surprise your sweetie or a full dozen bouquet. Once you see how easy these are to make you may not want to stop. Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. Hi! I so love your work, but have yet been able to download it and cut your files – apple blossoms, etc. I have literally spent hours trying to figure out what I have done wrong. Not sure that you have the answer but I am sure hoping so! Thanks so much.

  2. These are beautiful. I made the pink watercolor rose and it came out perfect. I used the Cricut Explore to cut the pedals. Will you be adding the red version to the Design Space? Also, I would like to cut in different colors, but it only wants to print then cut. Do you know a secret way to skip the print and just cut?

  3. Wow,so help me to find new idea!!

  4. hmm. I wonder what paper you used ? can i ask me the question?

  5. Do u still sell the kit for the rose tutorial?

  6. Thank you, looking forward to making 10 coffee mug centerpieces… lovely

  7. Can these roses be made with crepe paper?

  8. Wow! Love your work. May I ask what kind of paper you use so that I may reproduce a similar effect?

  9. Beautiful, beautiful….. i love it
