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.
You can download the giant paper rose flower template for making the petals at the end of this post. And for more flower paper crafts, check out our giant paper dahlia tutorial!

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.
