Rolled Paper Roses

These darling little roses are a great addition to any household decor. Add them as a gift wrap accent, homemade wreath, or table decor! My original circle was about 7″ in diameter and the finished product is about 1.75″ wide.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Paper, assorted colors
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue


  1. Cut out a circle about 6–7 inches in diameter. Freehand it, it does not need to be exact.
  2. Cut the circle into a spiral. The less perfect your spiral, the more unique petals you’ll have.
  3. Starting from the outside of the spiral, begin rolling the paper. Use hot glue to secure as you roll the flower.
  4. You may need to trim the end of the paper as you finish rolling the rose.
  5. Cut arcs out of green paper (for leaves) and glue to flower. Trim, if necessary.

Ideas from the elves:

  • Use scrapbook paper for a unique look. I used red polka dot paper for the flower and green argyle paper for the leaves.

  • Attach the flower to napkin ring. I made the ring from a strip of cardstock.
  •  Cluster several together and attach to a gift.

    Hi Jessica, I’m sorry you are having trouble with this craft. Make sure you are using hot glue, because glue sticks or other types of glue will not hold the paper as you roll it up.
