paper roses


I have used chart papers to make these flowers , The leaves are artificial.
I was surprised at the result. these flowers are too elegant considering how easy it is to make.
We don't even have to be precise, while cutting out the shapes. It gives it  a natural look.


My friends ask me how I did these flowers without a punch so I thought of adding a tutorial.


   Cut three circles of equal size.



Fold the circle into half , then again fold it into one fourth and again into one eighth.Repeat this with all the three circles.


   Cut all the three folded circles into a petal shape as shown in the picture.



     Unfold the three folded circles now they will look like this.



    Cut one petal out of the first circle, two petals out of the second circle and three petals out of the third.



   Apply glue on top of one end petal as shown.



   Stick the petal on the other end on top of the glued petal. Repeat this with all the three circle.


    Curl the petals with a pen or a refill like I have, repeat this with all the three circles as well as the petals that we have cut.



     Just apply glue inside and stick them all together as shown.



    You get a beautiful rose, this way we can make roses of any size.
