Back in July, I made this crepe paper ruby rose flower for our member make challenge. If you’re an annual member, you got to watch me make this flower live on our YouTube channel and craft along with me. Normally, member make challenges are exclusive to our annual members. But this one was so great, I just have to share how I made it with all of you!
For All My Buds
To make your own crepe paper ruby rose, gather the tools and materials below. For reference, you’ll be able to make two large roses and two rosebuds with one sheet of cherry/raspberry paper. You can use different colors, if you prefer. I just think these colors are gorgeous! Also, they’re perfect for making paper roses that look realistic.
Next, download your SVG file if you’re using a cutting machine or PDF template if you’re cutting this pattern with scissors. Once you have everything ready to go, scroll down to watch our video tutorial for this crepe paper ruby rose.

Hi, I’m curious if the Art Glitter Glue would work for this or should I stick to the low-temp hot glue?
Try the Art Glitter Glue and see what you think.
I don’t see instructions for this flower and the video is no longer available. Do you have instructions for it?
Hi, Laura! I am seeing the video right under the part that says “instructions.” Here is the direct link to where it is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDK4z_rxoMI&feature=emb_title
0`I printed the ruby rose templates but they seem too small, not like the ones in your video, is the size i have printed correct or do I have to enlarge them plwase advise. Marie
The template size should be correct if you printed it at 100%. You can send a photo to us at email@example.com and we can confirm!
I have Brother Scan and Cut, when I try to cut the files of your camellia I get the notice “image is too large for mat so will be reduced in size “so then I can not make the camellia as it cuts too small. Do you have a way around this? Thanks for any help Marie
Hi Marie! Unfortunately we don’t know the software that Brother uses so you’ll want to reach out to their customer service for more info. If there’s anything we can do to make the file compatible, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not sure what is happening but when I download the SVG for this into DS it is so much smaller than the PDF.
The circle for the centre is only 1.219. Any idea what might be causing this.
Hi Anne, we seem to be experiencing this with a several projects right now! There was an InDesign update recently, so that could be why. Our files are perfectly fine, so hopefully we’ll figure out what the trouble is and can report back soon.
Hi, I just became a member and made my first crepe paper rose and appreciate the video which explains each step. Thanks so much and look forward to making a rose half as beautiful as yours!!
Did I miss something? Where does the sepal and bud sepal come in?
I explain the bud/sepal around the 19:10 mark in the video. 35:50 is when the smaller sepals come in.
Can you please tell me the correct cut settings and mat to use for your heavy crepe paper on the cricut maker?
We have a video on tips & tricks for the Maker! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91IyqbcFQzk– check the 39 minute mark to see Lia cut heavy crepe using the Denim setting.
Hi, is it possible to get the measurements of the rose petals? I love this rose and attempted to make it with the 1 inch styrofoam ball as suggested, but there is just no way my petals will fit around it no matter how much I stretch them. I am using the Lia Griffith double sided crepe as recommended, so everything else is okay, but I’m wondering if my pattern is being shrunk when I print it. I did end up making the rose using a centre ball made out of tissue, but the rose was much smaller than the one in the video. If someone could tell me how much the petals should measure (width and height in centimetres if possible), that would be wonderful. Thank you!
The smallest petal (1) is approx 1.25″W x 2″H, and the largest petal (5) is approx 3″W x 2.65″H 🙂
where’s petal number5? Both PDF and SVG have only 4, uncles you count the centre round.
The are only 4 petal shapes, she is referring to the amount of each petal when she says 5 🙂
