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.
