These Crepe Paper Garden Roses are a great beginner to intermediate-level craft. Still, we encourage all skill levels to give this lovely project a try. The intricate details may seem difficult, but our handy list of tools and materials will make it all come together beautifully. Due to these roses’ fresh, organic look, you’re welcome to cut your petals by hand. However, there are quite a lot of them, so we highly recommend a cutting machine for time’s sake.
Valentine’s Day and roses go hand in hand — so these Crepe Paper Garden Roses were the perfect choice for this month’s collection. Symbolizing love, passion, and beauty, roses are the undisputed queens of the holiday. When designing this piece, we tried to include almost everything that makes roses so fascinating. Gently curling petals, realistic details, and soft, delicate hues make these Crepe Paper Garden Roses a sumptuous feast for the senses. The only thing missing is their sweet perfume and maybe a bug or two!
With a few crafting tips and tricks, you’ll soon have a batch of beautiful blooms rivaled only by the real deal. We chose our double-sided crepe paper in the dreamiest shades of peach, green, and cream for a soft, elegant feel. Then, we used our curling tool to gently shape the petals to mimic the natural curl of real roses. It’s those tiniest details that result in a truly swoon-worthy piece.
Make these roses in whatever double sided crepe paper color you wish, you may even choose to make your own double sided using our extra fine crepe paper and fusible webbing. One of our roses is made using diy double side blush.
When you’re all finished, place them in a vase to beautify a side table or add some romantic charm to your workstation. Of course, these Crepe Paper Garden Roses would also make a wonderful gift for someone special this Valentine’s Day. After all, you really can’t go wrong with roses.
We truly can’t wait to see your blooming beauties, so be sure to share your gorgeous work in our crafter’s community. Additionally, you can tag us on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
