How to make an Easy Paper Rose

How to make an Easy Paper Rose


– Hello everyone, this is
Yolanda from All Crafts Channel. In today’s tutorial we’re
just gonna learn how to make this quick and easy little flower. I hope you enjoy it; you can put it on different
things to embellish. It is made out of card stock, so I hope you enjoy it. Let’s get the party started! Okay, to begin you’re gonna
need a piece of card stock, and the colored part will go to the inside so we’re gonna draw our
lines here on the back part. You’re gonna need a little bit of glue just to tack it down to begin. I use a little toothpick
to start rolling it up. Of course, your pen, and
then I use a little circle. This is a little coffee
cup coaster that I have. Got it from somewhere. Anyway, I just have this little
package of different colors so I thought, “Well I’ll use and try to
make some of these flowers.” So basically what you’re
gonna do is you’re gonna turn your paper over. It’s super fast and easy. So easy, in fact, that
I always think about, “Do I really wanna do this
video ’cause it’s so easy?” I like to just kinda lightly trace around to help me kinda guide me, but you don’t have to do that. Oops, I missed this other side here, see? It was so light that it didn’t even trace. So then what I want to start
here, try to find the center. And then I’m just gonna
try to make it a little, I start here, and just
start swirling around. Try to do it as even as possible. My swirls are not always very even. See like right here, so when I cut it out I’ll try to be a little bit more careful. And then here, I’m just
gonna start there, okay? So here is where I’m gonna begin cutting. You just cut the round, oops sorry, here, if you want you can cut straight on here, or if you want it to be
a little bit more uneven, I like to go kind of… Can you see how it’s kind
of a little bit rounder? Like kind of wiggly, instead
of just going straight. See that? I’m gonna go a little bit wiggly, I’m gonna go all the way around. I’m gonna come here; I’m gonna stop there. I’m just gonna trace the other end and then I’ll start
cutting the other side. So here, then go all the way around, just to show you how to start it. And then once you start it, you guys of course don’t need to watch me cut the whole thing out. Just gonna do it there,
that’s the starting point. And it feels a little bit
awkward because I’m starting, cutting on the opposite in here. But that’s kinda how it starts. So you’re gonna cut all the way around. Don’t cut across ’cause
you’re gonna mess it up, until you get here to the end. So see how mine are not
completely straight? I’m making them a little bit curvy. So I’m gonna start, and you see that? I’m gonna keep continue
cutting all the way around. Okay so now here, before I
started, I cut this little tip because it was kinda long, just to make it easier to do this. Before I start rolling it up, remember we have to roll
the red in the inside. So here I’m going to get my toothpick… Let’s see if this is clear enough. See how it helps you kind
of start rolling it up? Just like that. So once I know that I’ve
cleared that toothpick, I’m gonna put a little dab
of glue to keep it together in the middle so it doesn’t fall apart when I’m working on it. Just a tiny little dab, you
don’t have to put a lot. And then it’ll just kinda smear there. And then you’re just going to roll it. Once you get it going, you might not need this toothpick anymore. So just go ahead and
roll it all the way up until you finish rolling the whole thing. And see how it’s coming
out nice and tight? Look here, I’ve rolled it all up. See how nice and tight it is? And it’s here all the way to the end. Once you get here, I’m gonna put a little
bit of glue right there just to kind of hold it. The Tacky Glue kinda works pretty good. And then if you want
to glue it to something then you would put glue here. Once I turn it over, you can go ahead and let
it uncurl a little bit. Remember it’s got a little bit
of glue in the middle there, so it’s not gonna really
fall apart that much. See if I could show
you what it looks like. We could put some light on here. So that’s pretty much how it is. If you want to let it
uncurl more, you can. And it’ll get a little bit
bigger, just like that. And then if you want to
attach it to something, you can attach it. And then you would just
flip it over, put glue here, see how it’s got a little bit of glue so it’s kind of staying together. They’re not gonna fall apart. If you want to put little dabs
of glue in between, you can. But I have found that’s not necessary because these are not items
that you’re gonna be wearing. It’s usually you put
it up on a little card or maybe a frame. If you want to attach it to something, then just put a little bit
of glue, stick it down, just wait for it to dry. And see, you want the color
being rolled on the inside. The wrong side is on the outside. You can even do this with… magazine pages, their colored pictures. You can cut it out, and it’ll
show different kinds of color. You can do one from sheet music. I’ve seen people do with sheet music. So this is just another
little quick, fun tip and I hope you enjoy it. See, now you can turn a
plain Dollar Store frame into a pretty little one with a rose. And it sticks up, it looks really pretty. Once the glue dries, it’ll dry clear so you
won’t be able to see that. Okay, as you can see it’s all done. That was really fast and easy. You can make tons of
these in no time at all. I do find that using a little toothpick or something like this helps. I know there’s some kids who are, I think it’s called paper quilling, but anyway, you don’t
need to get that involved. I’ve even seen these
used with sheet music, you can use regular
construction paper like the kind that the kids get, and magazine, the glossy picture side, you can cut those out. I think I want to attach three of these on top of a little frame that
I got at the Dollar Store but it was really plain
so this might make it look a little cuter. I cut a little leaf here, so I’ll paste this to my
flowers, to my three flowers, and then paste some of
these little leaves. I just cut ’em out here. It’s nothing fancy, just
got a piece of card stock that I had left over. And just kinda make a shape like a leaf, and then I’ll add these to
the bottom, just like that. When I paste them, I’m gonna
use my little Tacky Glue here on the frame. And you could also do that for
little Valentine’s Day card. I think they look really cute. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please be sure to subscribe if
