Paper Rose Greeting Card – DIY

So I’m back with another greeting card and this time with a free template download!

I’ve been very inspired by those large paper flower decors and the Lancome La Rose Blush that I’ve been seeing. So I tried making a smaller paper rose for decorating my greeting cards. Since Mother’s Day is coming up soon, I feel that this would make a very pretty Mother’s Day card or any special occasion greeting card.

Materials I used:

  • Cardstock paper
  • Printer and printer paper
  • Double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Petals Template (which you could download here): Petals PDF File
  • Ribbon
  • Pen

2_vickytI printed out two sheets of petals and cut out all the petals. Then I rolled one of them into a tube shape (with the pink showing on the outside) and taped it into that position. Then, curl the top of all the petals.

Then, placing another piece of tape at the bottom, I wrapped more petals around the previous petals. My paper rose isn’t circular at the bottom; I kept it somewhat flat and folded (as shown on the photo above) at the bottom so it’ll be easier to tape later onto the card.

I continued adding more until I was satisfied with how it looked.

I didn’t end up using all the petals I cut out but I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

I had a half piece of card stock paper that I folded in half to be the card. On the bottom of the flower, where a typical stem would be, I taped it directly onto the card.

For finishing touches I taped a small ribbon onto the bottom of the flower.

I just need to add a message on the inside and it’ll be completed.

I feel like I’m a little bit obsessed with roses and have made quite a few rose themed crafts. LOL which flower are you obsessed with?
