Would you believe me if I said these stunning flowers are quite simple to make? Well, it’s true! This was the first paper flower I designed and through the years it has taken many forms. I love decorating with a mini version of the rose in this gorgeous 3D artwork, or see how others readers add DIY to their weddings like Glorya and Tim’s 500 rose wedding decor. Today I’m sharing my video tutorial on how to make your own frosted paper rose bridal bouquet.
A Perfect Bouquet for the Bride-to-Be
If you’re thinking about making paper flowers for your wedding, I highly recommend it! Wedding flowers made out of paper won’t wilt. And a paper bouquet looks just as amazing as the real thing.
In my latest video tutorial, I teach you how to make this frosted paper rose bridal bouquet. And how to save time crafting it! More specifically, you’ll learn how to curl and rotate your petals to make them look realistic. I’ll also show you how to add leaves and sepals to your paper roses and how to add extra greenery for a fuller bouquet. Since I now use a high-temp hot glue gun for certain projects, I’ll share some tips on how to glue the different parts of your paper flower together.
Finally, you’ll see how I arrange the roses to create a beautiful bouquet! Ready to try it out for yourself? Gather the tools and materials listed here, then download our rose pattern below. We’ve included both an SVG cut file for those of you with a cutting machine as well as a PDF template if you’re cutting your roses by hand.

Hi! I am attempting to make a bouquet for a family member’s wedding. They are huge Harry Potter fans so looking to make roses out of pages from the books interspersed with other greenery and coloured flowers to keep it less monotone. I am have two issues. 1. How can I best work with this very thin paper type? Or may I have to print text onto heavier weight paper? 2. My central ‘bud’ section seems to sit very high. So the flowers look very open (if that makes sense?) am I doing something wrong? Many thanks
Hello Leigh-Ann. I have made this rose with all types of paper including vintage book pages which are almost like tissue and they came out beautifully. If your center is sitting high, see if you can open up the center hole on the lower petal sets a bit so they will slide up higher to match the slope of how the petals will be opening up. This should give you more flexibility to sculpt your roses.
Do u have to be a member? I just want to bye the bridal Rose svg templete.
We are a membership site and currently do not sell templates. You can join for one month which is the price for one template on other sites. 😉
Where do we find the template for the leaves? I don’t see it linked anywhere!
The leaves are on page 2 of the PDF template.
This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try this for my wedding.
I did have a question about the bottom. Right now you can see the thin wiring. Is there ways to hide the wiring fully and to create a thicker stem base?
Please do let me know!
Yes, you can hide the back wiring by adding leaves and you can also use the thick stem wires that we sell in our shop.
this is such a beautiful wedding bouquet you made there. Makes me wanna try it right away, hoping to see more like these in the future. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much, glad to hear you like this!
Gorgeous bouquet. Can’t wait to start making some test ones for my wedding!
Brilliant Concept!! Keep up the Good Work!!
This is stunning!
I’m trying to make this for my bridal bouquet, and a different kind of flower for my bridesmaids.
The hot glue isn’t sticking super well on the other flower (stardream metallic paper as.well). In your experience, what are other glues might work ?
Hi Natasha! I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble. Are you using the high-temp glue gun? The brand of glue stick will make a difference– we use Adtech brand, but others have told us the Gorilla glue brand works well for most metallic papers as well. I hope that helps!
I found the information about the glue gun below your tutorial. Thank you. I love your flowers.
Oh good! Have fun 🙂
Lia, I would like to know where you got your ‘fine tipped’ hot glue gun? I cannot seem to find one that looks like such a fine tip as yours.
Hi Dottie, there’s a link in the post to the high-temp glue gun we use with the fine tip.
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I’m inspired! Thank you.
Thank you Debbie!!
Hi Lia, I was wanting to make this bouquet & I went to the link you had for the frosted coral. The paper is 11.5×8. The flower you have needs 12 x 12. They do have 12×12 in coral stardream metallic. Is this frosted like you have in video? Also it is 105 lbs instead of the 81 lbs. will this work ok?
Hi! I’m using 8.5×11 paper in the video– the link will take you to the correct paper.
I love this bouquet, what do you mean by “text weight”. I am having a difficult time finding frosted text weight paper.
Text weight paper is similar to regular printer/copier paper. I just updated the post with the exact links to the paper we love to buy from PaperPapers.com!
I Love your Bridal Bouquet the first flower u
