Twisted Crepe Paper Rose

Apr 2, 2010

This sweet rose embellishment is perfect to use as an accent on any project or card. I think it would be gorgeous on a birthday, thinking of you or Mother’s Day card. This rose is really simple to make and I see an addiction headed my way as I just cannot seem to make enough of them right now. I guess the addiction is already here.

Supplies Used: Crepe Paper Streamer – Pink, Self Adhesive Pearls – 2MM, Felt Leaves, Platinum and Diamond Stickles, Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Creamy Brown Ink, Book Page

Tools Needed: Scissors, Fiskars Large Scallop Squeeze Punch – Seal Of Approval


  1. Using a Scallop Punch, punch one scallop circle out of an old book page.
  2. Ink the edges using a creamy brown ink.
  3. Accent the scalloped edge of the circle using Platinum Stickles. Let dry.
  4. Cut a piece of crepe paper streamer to 12″ in length, fold in half length wise.
  5. Starting at one end begin rolling the crepe paper tightly with the  folded edge on top. You want the rolled portion to look like the center of a semi opened rose.
  6. Holding the flower in your left hand and the folded crepe paper strip in your right, begin twisting the crepe paper and wrap around the center forming a circle until the entire piece has been twisted. My finished rose measures approx. 1″ in diameter.
  7. Apply a liquid adhesive to the back of the crepe paper rose and attach it to the center of the scallop circle.
  8. Attach two felt leaves with a strong adhesive as shown above.
  9. Accent the top of the crepe paper rose using Diamond Stickles and 3 self adhesive pearls.
