How to Make a DIY paper flower Rose
Roses are so beautiful. I have loved them for as long as I can remember. When I was little girl I would play in my grandmas rose garden for hours on end. Running around the bushes and spreading the sweet smelling petals all over the place. I’d pretend it was like the book the secret garden(my favorite book at the time). I wanted a rose to add to my home decor to remind me of those days. I came up with this DIY Paper Flower Rose.

First cut out hearts from colored card stock to create Rose petals
The very first thing we need to do is cut out a bunch of hearts from the card stock(your color of choice).
We will need three sizes of hearts for your paper flower rose petals.
The first heart petal size will be the largest you will need about 5-10 (depending on how thick you would like your rose to be).
The second size heart petals need to be about 30% smaller. You will also cut these out of the same color card stock and will need about 5-10 as well.
The third heart petal size will be about 30% smaller then the second size heart petals. Don’t worry the sizes don’t have to be exact just in general 3 sizes gradual in size is what you need. you will need about 5 of this size.
The number of rose petal hearts that you chose to create depends on how thick you would like your rose. The more card stock hearts the more petals on your rose. Therefore the thicker your paper flower rose will be.
Next attach your paper rose petals to your floral wooden stick
Some heart petals will be folded around the stick while others will glue on straighter.
Continue to work around the rose gradually increasing in petal sizes until you have glued on all of the paper heart rose petals.
Fold one of the smallest paper heart rose petals in half and glue it around(I used hot glue) the floral wooden stick.
Continue gluing the smaller heart petals around the floral wooden stick.
Glue on all paper heart rose petals
Decorate your diy paper flower rose
Add embellishments to your DIY paper flower rose if desired. I added twine around them floral wooden stick(stem) and a few rhinestones. This is completely optional.
I love the extra detail that the twine and rhinestones added. Decorate it however you like.
Think about where you would like to place your DIY paper flower rose in your home. This may influence how you decorate your DIY paper flower rose.
