How to Make Rolled Paper Roses
Paper flowers fashioned from old book pages, newspaper or brown Kraft paper are a frugal alternative to store-bought ribbons and bows.
- old book pages, newspaper, scrapbook paper or Kraft paper
- hot glue gun
- glue sticks
Cut Paper Circles
Cut a rough circle out of your chosen paper type. Tip: It doesn't need to be perfectly round.
Cut and Roll the Spiral Shape
Draw and cut a spiral shape starting from the edges of the circle. Leave a circle in the center; this is where you will affix the rolled flower.
Start rolling the cut spiral from the edge until you reach the center.
Glue Rolled Paper
Release the swirl of rolled paper to reveal your rose, then hot glue the swirl to the center to secure the rose in place.
Repeat With Coordinating Paper
Repeat with varying sizes of circles and different paper textures to create a stunning adornment for cardboard gift boxes.
Finish the look with wrapped twine and a printable gift tag.
