Mini Paper Rose

Hello, as a woman who likes flowers, I must confess that when I saw the giant paper flowers I was fascinated, and said: “I have to make them”, but I quickly became curious to make them in different sizes so that I could use them to decorate not only walls, but also anything I could think of to give it a delicate touch. Taking into account that the roses seem to me as well as delicate, beautiful, this time I want to share with you my DIY Mini Paper Rose, with which you can make roses of 3 ¼ “approximately, and I can assure you that they will give a delicate touch to any space where you place them.

To start:

“If you do not have Silhouette Cameo, print the .pdf file and cut the pieces that have 4 petals, and the smallest petal.”

Once you have the pieces cut, take those that have 4 petals and the smallest petal, you should have:

  • 1 small petal
  • 2 pieces of 4 petals size A
  • 3 pieces of 4 petals size B
  • 2 pieces of 4 petals size C
  • 1 piece of 4 petals size D

    I often visit your page and have noticed that you don’t update it
    often. More frequent updates will give your page higher authority & rank
    in google. I know that writing articles takes a lot
    of time, but you can always help yourself with miftolo’s tools which
    will shorten the time of creating an article to a couple of seconds.

      Thank you very much for your words!, I identify with you because my love for crafts began with my eldest son’s first birthday; I’m sure your roses were beautiful; I hope you can send me photos or tag me in some on instagram. With the leftover pieces you can make a smaller rose, I hope to upload the tutorial before your child’s birthday, however, you can use this tutorial as a guide to make the other mini paper rose.
