My paper rose is a popular design and with Halloween just around the corner we wanted to take that design and create a rich, dark, paper flower bouquet that would be perfect for the coming season. Ideal for Halloween, a Fall wedding or as a striking table display, our paper rose bouquet is a guaranteed head-turner. Planning a Gothic Wedding? This is the bridal bouquet for you! We used three different metallic papers and printed a watercolor wash onto them to start. We then used the pattern below to print and cut our paper rose templates. Download the SVG file if you are using a cutting machine or the PDF if you will be cutting this pattern by hand.

To make your paper roses you can watch my video tutorial here which gives you clear step-by-step instructions on how to put this pretty paper rose together. You can then take a look at this post to see how to assemble the paper rose bouquet. The secret to getting a really soft looking paper rose is to curl the petals gently with a curling tool before gluing the layers together – you will see exactly how to do this in the video but I would urge you to have a little play with some scraps of text-weight paper before you commit to your metallic paper.

I always love to see my paper flower designs out there in the world so if you make this paper flower bouquet please do share pictures with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. See you there! ~Lia
