How to Make Paper Roses

Give a beautiful rose that will last forever with this DIY. These roses are made of sheet music, and make a beautiful bouquet that is perfect for decorating.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Age range: 12 and Up
Time to complete: 20 Minutes

Things you’ll need:
Sheet Music or Card Stock
8″ Circle Pattern
Wire Cutters
Floral Tape
Hot Glue Gun
Green Paper

Things to do:
1. Trace an 8″ circle onto your piece of sheet music. Cut around the pencil line, weaving your scissors in and out to create a jagged edge.

2. Cut a spiral into the circle, leaving a jagged edge.

3. Roll up the spiral that you cut, starting at the outside and working in. This coil will become the petals of your rose.

4. Loosen the coil slightly, until it reaches a size that you like.

5. Use hot glue to secure the rose-shaped coil.

6. Cut a piece of wire to create the stem of the rose. Use hot glue to attach the wire to the bottom of the flower and let it dry for a few minutes.

7. Cut a leaf shape out of green card stock. I found that mine looked best when they were about 2 inches long.

8. Fold the leaf in half and secure it to the bottom of the rose bud with hot glue.

9. Wrap the wire stem in floral tape tightly, adding strength to the stem of the rose.
