Hi guys! Today I am sharing how I make paper roses. The ones I am showing I am making for my daughter's wedding. They are made with Harry Potter book pages. NOTE: you cannot sell "Harry Potter" anything as it is trademarked, but you can make them for personal use. I have also made these with maps and sheet music. You can use any paper. Scrapbook paper will work but lighter weight works better than heavier weight..less stiffness, but I'd use the kind with images/color on both sides as you will see the reverse.
I pull each petal across a scissor edge from the center out to cup it. Don't pull too hard or you will tear it.
When done it should look like this.
Then I curl the petal outer edges (2 curls per petal) in the same direction as the last step.
When done it should look like this
Make a "nest" with your finger to hold the glue.
You can "zhugzz" or tweak the petal edges to add more curl or pinch in a fold or tuck a petal with your fingers.You can use them like this or add a calyx and leaves and floral tape. I'll show that step later when I get these to that point.
