Valentine’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
