How To Make A Paper Rose

When I make flowers I like to use hot glue guns to assemble them.
It dries quickly and makes for a sturdy flower.
To make a rose using your gypsy you want to select any image that will make a good petal, leaf and base of the flower. See diagram below to start your cut file.

Create A Cut File

On Your Gypsy make a cut file with the above images.
Cartridges - Gypsy Font, Mother's Day Bouquet.

Preparing The Petals

You Need 12 1-1/2" Petals, 9 1-1/4" and 4 1" petals

I used my quick stick and foam pad.

I rubbed the petal in a circular motion to curl the petal.
Don't worry about the folds and wrinkles it adds to the texture of the flower.

Assembling The Rose

Next ink the edges of the petal.

Layer the 2 cross shape petals for the base of the rose.
Adhere with hot glue.

Next adhere 6 1-1/2" petals with hot glue to the base of the flower.

Next adhere with hot glue and layer the next 6 petals.
Place this row of petals so they are inbetween the bottom petals met.

Next Layer 6 1-1/4" petals in the same manner as above.

Next layer and adhere with hot glue the last 3 petals of the flower.

Creating The Center Of The Rose

Place a tweezers at the side of the petal.

Next roll the 1" petal around the tweezers.
This will be the center of the rose.

With the last 3 1" petals place the tweezers in the center of the petal.

Next fold the sides of the petal around the tweezers.
This will create a bend in the petal to layer around the center of the rose.

Your 4 1" petals should look like this.

Next put a bead of hot glue in the center of a petal.

Place the center of the rose on top of the petal.
Next adhere the other 2 petals to the center of flower.

Your rose should look like this when completed.

Next adhere the leaves to the side of the rose with hot glue.

Your first rose is done. Now your ready to make some more.

Happy Crafting
