How To Make Paper Roses That Aren’t Kitschy
To ensure a long-lasting bouquet this Valentine’s Day, learn to make your own! These paper flowers are simple and easy– plus, you can decorate winter branches with them and make them into a Valentine’s Day centerpiece. Write a message on the inside of each flower for the people you love most. Plus, if you use compostable seed paper, you can plant the flowers in your yard as a lasting symbol for those you care about.
- Cut a 3″ x 3″ square piece of paper.
- Trace a spiral on the inside of the square, about 1/4″ between the circles of the spiral. If you would like to write a message, add one to the inside of the spirals!
- Cut the spiral out.
- Begin rolling the spiral in on itself, starting from the outside. Roll until there is no more paper left. Affix with a small dot of glue if needed.
- Add to real branches from leftover plants to create your own bouquet!
