This tutorial will show you how to make a beautiful rose of crepe paper yourself. This flower will decorate your candy bouquet. As for me, I always use such corrugated paper roses for my sweet bouquets and other compositions.
There are many variants of creating a rose of corrugated paper. I will show you two of them: the first one in my description with photos and the second one in the video below the page. Though the process of making those two roses is almost similar, the result is quite different.
How to make a rose of crepe paper
Let’s begin with preparation of material for your beautiful paper rose.
Make the lowest petal of 7×7 cm (2.7×2.7 inches).
Your following six petals will be 3×7 cm (1×2.7 inches).
Then make seven petals of 4×7 cm (1.5×2.7 inches).
Cut the edges of your petals and give them the following form.
Curl the edges of your petals towards you with the help of a toothpick.
Make those tiny curls on the both sides of your petals.
Then give your petals a shape of a boat.
Do this with all the petals except for the biggest one.
Then wrap the candy into the biggest petal and secure it with thread. This will be your rose bud.
Glue the first petal to the bud.
Glue the second petal so that it covers the first one a bit.
Cover the bud with all the petals the same way.
The first row of my rose consists of 6 petals, but the quantity depends upon the size of the candy. If it’s small, the first row may consist of 5 petals.
Then make the following row of petals the same way.
With the course of time the edges of the petals will straighten, and your rose will look like real.
Now make the sepal of your rose. You will make it of green corrugated paper of 7×8 cm (2.7×3.15 inches).
Give the green piece of your paper the following shape. The distance between the bottom line and the angles should be 1 cm (0.4 inches).
Now make the small cuts on each of the leaves.
Make your sepal dome-shaped. Make its upper edges a bit rounded.
Glue the sepal to the rose.
Now your rose is ready. Let’s make the additional rosebud.
Prepare the piece of corrugated paper of 8×7 cm (3.15×2.7 inches).
Give it the rounded shape, as shown below. Make the sepal, as you did for your rose before.
Wrap the candy into the piece of corrugated paper, stretching it a bit.
Twist the edge of your rosebud in the other direction and secure it with some thread.
Glue the prepared sepal to the rosebud.
Now your paper roses are ready!
