I’m sure you’ve seen pretty paper rosettes like these popping up all over party blogs, and if you’re like me, you’re wondering about the best way to make them! Turns out, it doesn’t take much besides some 12″ square scrapbooking paper, a hot glue gun, and a little patience for folding – which means, of course, that they’re as cheap as can be to make.
This fantastic tutorial was written and photographed by A Good Affair. It has clear step-by-step instructions and photos that will help you learn how to make paper rosettes!
2- 12″x12″ sheets of paper
Glue stick or Elmer’s
Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Take your 12″x12″ sheets of paper, and cut in half.
Step 5: Making sure the glue has dried and all pieces are secure, stand your ring upwards, and gently press the top edge outwards, with the bottom edge remaining on your work surface. This will form your paper rosette!
Step 7: To secure your paper rosette, take your hot glue gun (it sets faster) and put a dollop of glue right in the center. Make sure to hold down the rosette as the glue sets. If you are planning to have your rosettes double-sided i.e. both sides will be seen, be sure to hot glue right in the center very neatly.
Step 8: (Optional) Dress up your paper rosette with a simple circle cutout, or a coordinating embellishment! You can get creative!
End Product: A beautiful 12″ Paper Rosette!
