STEP 1: Cut the paper

Take an A4 color paper (or letter size). Here we took red paper. 

We need square paper to make the petals, therefore cut a square of length 20 cm from the A4 paper and remove the excess.

Now we have a 20 cm square paper.

STEP 2: Fold the paper to make four more squares

Take the square paper we just cut. Fold it in half and make a crease (2a and 2b).

Now fold it again in half and make another crease (2c and 2d). 

STEP 3: Cut the squares

Cut along the creases and now you will have four square pieces (3a and 3b).

f. Repeat the steps from 4a to 4e with the rest of the 3 square papers.

h. Now we have 4 petal shapes.

STEP 5: Cut segments

c. Take the third petal shape.

When you cut three segments from it, you will be left with a shape with five segments (5c).

Along with the segment we just cut out which has three segments, save the leftover cutout with five segments, as we need both to make the rose flower.

Note: Except for one segment (step c), you can discard the rest of the cutouts.

Take a green paper and cut a square of size 15 cm. 

Starting from one corner, roll the paper as thinly as possible. When you reach the opposite corner, apply glue and stick it. 

STEP 9: Insert the petals and sepals into the stem

Starting from the smallest petal layer, insert the layers one by one into the stem you just made.

And finally, insert the sepal and apply some glue to the inner portion of the sepal to stick it to the bottom portion of the largest petal to secure the flower. 

Step 10: Curl the petals

Curl the edges of each petal segment outwards to make it look real.

And thus the easy paper rose flower is ready. 

Go to this tutorial to make a beautiful paper vase to put these paper roses in. For this paper vase, it’s best to make a smaller paper rose. We recommend taking a 10 cm paper square to make the smaller rose instead of 20 cm.
