Learn how to make giant paper roses out of cardstock with free templates! The roses are perfect for creating romantic flower backdrops for weddings or parties, and a single rose looks great as a wall ornament. We created the roses in an ombré effect and went from dark to light, choosing a deep mulberry tone for the outer petals and making the inner petals and centre light pink. Of course, these paper roses look absolutely gorgeous if you choose only one colour.

What cardstock should I use to make paper roses?

Since we want to curl and bend the petals, it’s best to use a light-weight cardstock for this project, 65 lb cardstock is ideal. The petals are made with our printable large rose flower template, which you can download below.

How to attach paper roses

You have different options when it comes to hanging paper flowers. You can use a piece of ribbon a wire loop threaded through the base of the rose and then hang it on the wall using a nail or a hook. This presentation looks particularly great if you want to present a single rose as a wall ornament. If you want to assemble a floral backdrop, it can be more practical to use double-sided tape or command strips instead of a ribbon.

Materials

Instructions

1) Create the base

To make the base, glue the circle template on a piece of cardboard and cut out a little larger than the template. If you want to hang the rose, make a small slit near the top of the circle and insert a piece of ribbon.

 

2) Use the template

Print out the template and cut out the four petal shapes and the rose centre. Lightly trace each template with a pencil and cut out the petals and centre. You need five of each “XL”, “L”, “M” and “S” petals, as well as 3 rose centres.

 

3) Shape the petals

Cut a small slit into the middle at the bottom of each petal. Using a hot glue gun, create an overlap. Be careful when handling the glue, it can be quite hot. Curl back the top edges of the “XL” and “L” petals. For the “M” and “S” petals, curl one edge forward and the other back. The handle of a wooden spoon works well for this.

 

4) Build the centre

Working with one rose centre, curl both ends of one petal inwards and glue them into a cone. Curl the second petal outwards and glue it to the cone. Glue the two remaining centres together at a 90-degree angle. Curl one edge back, the other forward, and attach the cone in the middle. Now, glue the inwardly curled edges of the petals to the cone, forming a spiral.

 

5) Assemble the flower

To assemble the flower, add a little hot glue to the bottom of the “XL” petals, and stick them around the cardboard circle. Allow the petals to overlap slightly. Add the next row of petals, the “L” petals, in-between the first. Continue this process with the “M” and “S” petals, and finish the rose by glueing on the centre. To remove any glue strings blow over the flower with a hair dryer until the strings disappear.
