Paper Roses are the most common flowers in gifting. Learn to make paper roses and it makes a perfect gift for Mother’s Day.
Origami/wrapping/colored paper (color on both sides). You require 4 squares for one rose.
Wire or broom sticks to hold the flower
Cane basket holder
Satin ribbon (or curling ribbon), packing paper
Step By Step Tutorial
Fold the square paper (I have taken 7.5 cm * 7.5 cm) in half and again in half till you have triangle with folds. Draw the petal shape, Cut at the top of the open part. Also cut a tiny amount at the bottom to make a hole in the center. Do the same with the rest of the 3 pieces. (Pic 1)
Unfold the petals. From the first paper petal cut out one petal along the folded lines. From the second cut out 2 petals along the folded lines and so on.
Apply glue to one petal and overlap to another petal shape to form a cone. Do the same with the rest leaving out the following petals 1, 2, 3 and one 4-piece petal. All of these could be used as inner petals forming buds. However, I have not used all of the smaller pieces.
Use a paintbrush or pencil and curl the cone shape petals outwards.
Take a piece of wire. Apply glue to the single petal and wrap around the wire to form a tight base. Then apply glue to the 3-petal piece and roll around the wire to form a bud. Now assemble the cone shaped petals by applying glue at the bottom of the petal. Starting with the smallest pass the wire through the hole; position the petals well.
Once the petals are secured with glue, cut a piece of calyx from green paper fix at the bottom of the flower. Attach leaves to the flower if desired.
I have put some oasis at the bottom of the cane holder. Then I added the weeds. Finally, I arranged the roses according to my liking. I covered the cane holder with packing material since the oasis was visible. I finally attached the curling ribbon.
