Roses You Say

August 15, 2010

Hi Everyone!!

Camilla and Trudi back today to talk about roses.  We adore roses and we love making them.  It would also appear that you all love making roses just as much as we do.  The creative process used is not ‘new’ and some of you may be familiar already with this particular  process when making the paper rose variety.  For those who are not, we will share the process we have used. 

The following roses have been made using a 6 petal flower punch.  The size of the rose will depend on the size of punched diecut that is used.   A larger punch will produce a much larger flower than a smaller punch

As you have previously seen, they make up beautifully in the Kaisercraft Lush and Secret Bird Society patterned papers

Camilla’s roses using Secret Bird Society Patterned Papers

Trudi’s roses using Lush Patterned Paper

Materials Required

Patterned Paper or Cardstock – Today we are using the Hippy Girl 6″ Paper Pad




6 petal flower punch – We have used a 2” one for the larger rose and 1” for a smaller rose.  Trudi sometimes also uses a 2 1/8” Floriano flower punch for the larger rose as a base petal, but this is not necessary.  Another 6 petal flower punched out for the base is also suffice

In addition: ink, glitter glue


Punch out 3 flowers


Fold  the flowers 3 times so that you have 3 intersecting lines as shown below – Note: Showing reverse side so that fold lines stand out


Flower 1:  Cut along one line till you reach the middle

Flower 2: Cut out one flower petal

Flower 3: Cut out 2 flower petals as one whole piece ( resembles a heart shape)


Glue each of the flowers so that they now resemble ‘cone’ shapes


Using a skewer or similar, roll over the edges of each petal


Snip of the pointy end of each flower


We are now going to start layering the flower – working from largest to smallest

Place a dob of glue in the middle of the largest cone shape petal and sit the next largest petal over the top

Place another dob of glue in the centre and place the smallest cone shape petal on top


Creating the centre of the rose

Roll the ‘heart shaped’ piece and glue at the bottom to secure

Snip the end, place some glue on bottom and sit this in the middle of your previously layered flower

Roll the single petal which remains, glue and snip the pointy end

Place some more glue on the bottom and sit in the middle

With your skewer ‘flair’ out slightly until you are happy with the result


Punch out another flower shape, place a dob of glue on the centre and sit your rose on top.  For something extra – Punch out a different shape flower.  This time we are using a Floriano shape

Roll the petal edges

And slightly bend petals so that they sit upwards

Place a dob of glue in the centre and sit your previously constructed flower on top

Allow to dry and decorate with glitter glue if you choose.

Congratulations your rose is now blooming!!

Other things to try

Distressing/roughing up the edges of your punched die cuts before the assembling process for a more vintage look

Inking the edges

Emboss punched die cuts using Cuttlebug Embossing Folders or similar for a different look

Stamp images on punched die cuts before the assembling process


As seen previously on Trudi’s Funky Wreath

Materials Required

6 Petal Punch – 3″ for larger rose and 2″ for smaller rose




Additional: Ink, glitter glue


Punch out a shape


With a pair of scissors follow the curves of the flower shape and cut around till you reach the middle of the flower; finishing off with a small circle effect


Starting from the outside and working in, wrap the edge around a skew (or similar)

A tighter coil will produce a smaller, tighter rose, a looser coil will produce a larger spread out rose.

Once you have come to the end, allow to unravel slightly.

Place some glue on the end circle and sit the flower coil on top.

Use the skewer to flair out some of the petals

When the glue has dried, roll over some of the petal tips with the skewer

Congratulations – your rose is now blooming!!

Finish off with some glitter glue if you choose

Have fun creating your own ‘blooming lovely’ roses

    I am really impressed together with your writing skills and also with the layout in your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a great weblog like this one today..
