Crepe Paper Rose

Materials:

  • Assorted colors of crepe paper
  • Florist wire and wire cutters
  • Floral Tape
  • Pattern- Outer Petals
  • Pattern 2- Inner Petals

 

Instructions:

  1. Create a stamen (the center of the rose) by cutting fringe on a single strip of crepe paper ( I used yellow).

  2. You can cut your petals free hand, or you can print the images above to use as templates. For each rose, you will need fourteen to sixteen outer petals, five to six inner petals and one stamen. Make sure the grain of the crepe paper is running vertically when you cut them so that you can shape them properly.

  3. To shape, place your thumbs together in the center of the petal and gently press down and tug outward. This will make your petal rounded and more natural looking.

  4. Using a bit of floral wire (or a toothpick if you prefer) roll the tip of the petal outward over the wire to create a lip and a natural looking inner petal.

  5. Use the same technique on the rounded edges of the heart shaped outer petals.

  7. Move the stamen a little down the wire.

  8. Fold the wire over to secure the stamen in place. Tape the stamen down with your floral tape. (Remember, it gets sticky as you pull on it, so pull gently on the tape as you go.)

  9. Begin adding the small inner petals, taping each one securely.
