Roses from napkins: a step-by-step guide

Let's create a flower to decorate the interior or an unusual gift. Its size will depend on the length of the stick and the volume of the core.

  1. At the first stage of making a rose from a napkin with our own hands, we will cut the corrugated paper into several strips.
  2. Cut them to the width of the leaf patterns.
  3. Rose leaves are collected on a branch of five pieces. One of them, large, is placed on top.
  4. The other four, smaller, are fixed oppositely.

For one flower will betwo branches are enough, that is, you need to prepare 2 large sheets and 8 small ones. More can be done if desired.

How to make foliage for a rose

  1. Cut a strip of paper into rectangles, attach blanks to them and cut out foliage on them.
  2. Then we make the edges corrugated with scissors with teeth.
  3. We measure 10 cm from the wire and cut it off - this will be the central branch. For side leaves, fold the segment in half and divide into two parts.
  4. Straighten the tips and apply glue on one side.
  5. Fold each leaf in half, attach a wire to the center and press.
  6. When all the parts are dry, we collect them into one branch: first we take a wire with large sheets and fasten a couple of small ones on the sides. We begin to wrap the branch with floral tape, going down.
  7. Then add two more and also wrap them with tape, fixing its edge with glue.

To make the napkin rose branch look more natural, you can give the foliage a curved shape by pulling a little on the edges.

Making corrugated paper sepals

Now we need to make the sepals.

  1. To do this, take a piece of green paper 6 cm wide and about 8 cm high.
  2. Fold it in half and then fold it to find the middle.
  3. Open the workpiece, take the scissors and start cutting the teeth.
  4. We will also decorate the stem of a rose from napkins with corrugated paper. Cut off a rectangle2 cm wide and slightly longer than the wooden skewer you prepared.

Rose petal blanks

Now let's start creating the bud. To do this, take a large two-layer napkin and cut it into strips.

  1. Bend it in half and cut off the fold line - the upper part of the resulting rectangle.
  2. Now you need to fold the canvas so that one part is shorter and the other is about a centimeter longer.
  3. Cut along the fold line and unfold the resulting strips. You should get four identical parts.
  4. We put one of them aside, and from the rest we will create a bud. To do this, take a pencil, place it in the middle of one of the strips on the very edge and begin to twist the part into a tube, but not completely, but about 1/3 of the length.

Cut out the petals

Next, cut the petals.

  1. Bend the quarter strip and round the napkin on the top on both sides.
  2. Then fold it 1/4 again and cut off the corners.
  3. Repeat all steps until we get to the end. The deeper the cuts, the more open the napkin rose will be in the end.
  4. On the next layer, make one more petal.
  5. On the third, again increase the number of petals by one.
  6. Twist the ends of the napkins again with a pencil or a skewer.

Rose Center

Before you make a rose from a napkin, you need to make its core. Canuse any candy, but the larger it is, the larger the flower will be.

  1. Wrap the delicacy with a small napkin, forming a bud, and then place a wooden skewer at the bottom.
  2. Set the glue gun to warm up.
  3. At this time, take the yarn and fasten the leg with it, tightly wrapping the lower part of the future flower. Additionally, we fix the parts with glue.
  4. Cut off the thread and take a strip cut from a large napkin, without petals.
  5. Wrap it around the middle, periodically turning the edge a little to get a shape resembling a rosebud.
  6. Fix the edge with glue and take the workpiece with the largest number of petals.

Flower assembly

  1. Starting to form a rose: take a napkin and start wrapping it around the middle so that the curved petals look outward.
  2. When finished, we fix the flower with a thread at the bottom and additionally process it with glue.
  3. Repeat all steps with the rest of the blanks.
  4. When finished, spread the petals and glue the sepals by stretching the crepe paper around the rose.
  5. Now take the floral tape and start wrapping it around the skewer.
  6. Then we fix the first branch with leaves and, going down a little, cut off the floral tape and fix the tip with glue.
  7. Now takea piece of corrugated paper, which we prepared for the stem, and wrap the skewer with it, after lubricating it with glue.
  8. Place the second branch with leaves on the fold line and seal the edges.
