How to Make a Paper Rose

This is one of my reader favorites on the Ellinée blog so I wanted to share it here as well. You can download some different variations of the paper rose printable PFD on Ellinée here, or buy this red rose template in my shop. ~ Lia

  1. Everything you make is wonderful and I appreciate you being so generous sharing your talents with us. You’ve truly been blessed with creativity and talent for making life more beautiful. I know some of your things have cut files for using with Design Space but this one doesn’t. Would it be possible for you to make it available? I have Rheumatoid arthritis throughout my body, but especially in my hands. There’s no way I could cut more than a couple by hand. I would make it myself with your template but I have no idea how. I just got the Cricut Explore for Christmas from my son. My first ever cutting machine. I love it. However, I have no ideat how to make a SVG file. Thanks again for everything you do Lia. May God continue blessing you.

  2. Lia,
    I will be making these for my further DIL’s wedding bouquet. Any suggestions on how to attach these to flower wire?
    Thank you!

  3. Is there a way I could use the template but insert my own colors? My bride is asking for blue and yellow flowers, and she loves this style!

  4. You are my hero….I’m going to try a version of this from the design space.

  5. Hi..the video of paper rose ws superb… Wer can I find these papers frm? Wat type paper is it? Is it possible to make rose with normal paper ? Frm Wer can I get these ready made paper frm???

    • Thanks Mary. Yes, you can use any paper, I just suggest not to use card stock as it does not curl as nicely. You can find the red printable in my Etsy shop.

  6. Thank you for your great tutorial, i was able to make around 200 of these for my wedding (except i used books)!!!


  8. Is wonderful :) but pls, what paper is it and what is the weigth of the paper? thanks

  9. I have just discovered you and am enjoying your creativity very much. I look forward to when I can find time to make some of your great projects.

  10. These are great, I am making a wreath to place on top of a 50th gift for my mother-in-law. Thank you Lia for being a constant source of inspiration. xo

  11. Oh perfect! Thanks so much for posting this, I’ve been looking for a tutorial exactly like this to make a small bunch of roses for Valentines Day from old maps of places that are special to us. This is perfect to finish the idea! Beautiful.

  12. Lovely roses – thank you so much for sharing.

  13. Wonderful creations! You make it look so easy. I’ll try making these too. Thank you.

  14. These are fantastic! I’m using them for my wedding! Have you ever thought of making a template for gardenias?

  15. Is this some kind of special paper or a ordinary one like print paper?

  16. Omg I just love these I can’t wait to make them with my grandkids I think they will have a great time I will handle the glue gun. Thank you so much for sharing. I just love, love the dresses you made from paper too………I bet it took a long time to make those do you ever share a pattern for them I bet a lot of people would buy them. Thanks again love all your work

    • Thanks Mary! The grandkids will love paper crafting with you. The dresses are totally made up as I go so a pattern would be impossible. Haha.

  17. I make coffee filter roses which do turn out beautiful, but very fiddley! The ones I see here are both beautiful and easy.
    I must make these soon.
    Thank you so much for the tutorial !

  18. I love theses flowers. can they be made small enough to use in my scrap booking or card making I do.

  19. Hey, what kind of paper you use in this video?

    • I used a simple printer paper in text weight. It is shiny from the laser printer. Any paper will work just not card stock as it does not curl smoothly.

  20. I absolutely love these but I have such a difficult time free handing the template for myself! I was wondering if you could maybe upload it or send it to me? I am looking to make some of these for our Senior Prom this year!

    Thank you!

  21. I can’t believe how nice these come out just from paper! Speaking of paper, what sort of paper was it printed on?

  22. What can be done if my printer doesn’t print on both sides at the same time?Love all your paper roses.

  23. Stunning! You make it look so easy.

  24. thats awesome

  25. Thank you for sharing Hugs!
