Easy Rose Tutorial


Here's an easy way to make your own paper roses like the ones on the card below--originally posted HERE.   (Jane has asked me to show her how, so Jane, this is for you!  Sorry it took me this long to getting this tutorial done.)

Supplies required:
- flower die or punch with 5-rounded petals

There are many available dies and punches, here are a few selections and as you can see, the resulting flowers are very similar:  

using Cheery Lynn Designs B155 Large Rose Die

using Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations HCD-701 Posy Patch Die

using EK Success large Retro Flower punch

- white cardstock--I used American Crafts 80 lb. (216gr./m²) 
- Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink stamp pad (any colour) and dauber/dabber
- spray bottle filled with tap water
- stylus and molding mat
- glue


Step 1
Punch or diecut flowers.  You need 4 (of the same size) to make one rose.

Step 2
Apply ink to the centres of each flower as shown.

Step 3
Spray a light mist--just enough water to dampen the paper to make the ink spread.  If too wet, just let dry a bit.

Step 4
Place the flowers on a molding mat--if you don't have one, you can use a rubber mouse pad.
Curl up each petal using a stylus (with a medium-size ball)--one flower with the inked-side down (this is for the centre bud) and the other 3 flowers with the inked-side up as shown.

Step 5
Cup the flowers to form different degrees of tightness/openness as shown.  Let completely dry.  When dry the flowers will be stiff.

Step 6
Take the flower with the ink on the outside and apply glue to all 5 petals.

Step 7
Bring the petals together to form a bud a shown.  Hold together until the glue holds.

Step 8
Apply glue to the centres of the other 3 flowers.

Step 9
Layer the 3 flowers off-setting the petals, then place the bud in the centre.

There you go!  Have fun creating your own roses.

And I've done a video tutorial too!

Merci beaucoup pour ce partage et merci aussi à Jane pour vous avoir demander ce tuto.
En ce moment je cherche à faire mes embellissements maison car j'aime beaucoup qu'ils soient en harmonie avec mes papiers et c'est avec un grand plaisir que j'ais visionné votre vidéo.
Gros bisous et bonne après midi.
