One of the reasons I love to make paper flowers is because there are so many gorgeous variations to recreate! I designed this frosted paper Lolita coral rose based on the original paper rose I designed nine years ago. With hundreds of paper flower designs behind me, I added new details to improve the look of this beautiful rose and make it easier for you to craft.
Also, for all of our visual learners out there, we have created a video tutorial to show you how to make this paper rose. Once you’ve got it down, just add a few more to make a pretty paper bouquet.
The Lovely Lolita
Lolita is a hybrid tea rose that comes in shades of coral and apricot. For our frosted paper lolita coral rose, I chose the first color in our citrus pack. This vibrant shade is perfect for spring and summer — and it’s such a cheerful color, too. Some other pretty options for this rose are the pink hues in our melon pack.

I have been enjoying your site so much, Thank you. I have been making your felt tea roses for awhile now, but i saw these frosted paper ones and i was excited to try something new. I worked on the simple rose one and had success, but i liked the way the center of this one looked so i wanted to try it. I watched the video but i am having trouble with the part where you curl up the center piece and attach it to the ball. it is either too big and the top hole is huge and does not look right or it is too small and it does not fit correctly on the ball. Your videos are usually really good about showing the process from all angles but the part of the video that shows this part does not really show it. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thank you so much.
So happy to hear! And good on you for branching out. 😉 So sorry the video doesn’t show this step better. Try forming a cone with that piece and fit it over the ball before you glue it into place. This will let you practice before you add the glue. Let me know if you need more suggestions.
Hi Lia! This is definitely my favorite rose you’ve made, so much so that i’ve decided to redo my bedroom with various sizes of this rose above my bed. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to mount them on my wall and although i’ve seen several option online else where, they’re all for a flat backed paper flower, which this is not. Do you have any ideas or advice on how to mount these flowers on a wall?
I would use the wire stem (18-24 gauge, not the thick stem wire) to make a simple loop on the back of the rose then add small nails onto the wall as a hook for the wire. This should allow you to arrange the rose faces as you like by bending the wire. One of my favorite rose projects is the 9 gold mini roses in a frame that I keep in my living room. Share pics of the final project! I would love to see.
The petals on this SVG file can’t be separated and rearranged. Is there a way to get the file so I can un group them and rearrange them? I want to make a bigger flower but can’t seem to do it with this file.
We have updated the SVG and you now should be able to ungroup and rearrange the petals! 🙂
Just got my paper today and so excited to try this rose. What setting do you use to cut this frosted craft paper on the Cricut Maker?
We use the copy paper setting for our frosted paper but always suggest doing a test cut first with your machine and blade 🙂
