How to make paper roses

People love receiving flowers and most people’s favourite flowers is the rose. The one bad thing about flowers is that eventually they die and the colourful petals begin to fade. With tissue roses you don’t need to worry about the rose dying or worry about the thorns hurting you. These amazing tissue rose flowers will never wilt and they are really easy to make and to use as decoration around your house.

You will need the following:

  • Tissues
  • Floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Floral tape (optional)
  • Floral perfume (optional)

Step 1: First you need to take a single tissue and flat it out flat on a smooth, flat surface. The long side of the tissues should be on the top and bottom and the short sides on the right and left.

Step 2: Now you need to fold the tissue. You need to fold about half an inch of the bottom of the tissue up. Now you need to fan-fold the next half an inch to the back. Now keep fan-folding the tissue until it is completely folded.

Step 3: Once you have the tissue folded into a long strip, you need to fold again, this time matching the short ends to each other creating a single bend in the centre.

Step 4: Now take a 12-inch piece of wire and bind the centre of the strip tightly.

Step 5: Cut the folded end. Now peel the layers of the tissue, opening the flower to form a fluffy, soft, round blossom.

Step 6: Wrap the very bottom of the flowers (where the wire is holding the tissue together) and the wire with the floral tape. Very lightly mist the flowers with a little perfume.

Enjoy this flower and with the proper care it will last a very, very long time.
