  1. so absolutely gorgeous!!! we have to try and make these! what a statement!

  2. Yay. These turned out so great Kelly! I know they were a lot of work, but they look so good.

  3. These are beautiful! Great for a styled photo shoot. I can’t wait to try these at my next party!



  4. Hi Kelly, I was at the event. You were a terrific teacher and I absolutely love how my rose turned out. Thank you for posting the instructions here so I can make more of them!

  5. these are stunning! i would love to make these for my bridal shower, but i’m pretty intimidated… I bet once you make one though, the rest are easier.

  6. Hey,

    these are STUNNING! I mean, I am hopelessly in love with them. Unfortunately, we don’t get double sided crepe in my country – atleast i’ve never seen it. Will these roses be as pretty if i make them with single color crepe or should i take two different colour sheets and glue them together?

    Another question, i don’t know if i’ll find paper wrapped wire – i might find just the wire at a flower shop. Do you think i could just use old newspaper to wrap the wires myself? Also, what can i use in place of garden tape. We definitely don’t get that here.

  12. Thank you so much for the B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L DIY!!!! I shared with my readers and I think any lovely lady would appreciate these!

  13. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your fantastic post. Also, I’ve shared your
    site in my social networks!

  14. I just made my dirst flower for my wedding! I was curious about the ironing process because I didn’t iron mine but I like the smooth appearance better. Do you iron the paper with a regular iron? How hot? And do you leave the crepe unstretched to iron it so it doesn’t lose it’s stretching ability? Thanks!

  15. I made a small trial one and found it easier to lay about 3 petals at a time onto some double sided tape, put them in place, then took the backing off, this then became the adherent for the next round. It saved the petals slipping out of place. Now to make the larger ones ready for my future daughter in law to carry at her wedding to my son next year.

  17. Thanks for the detailed tutorial. I’ve recently tried to make one, but the petals dont seem to hold up well when the stem is in an upright position. Should I have taped the floral tape up higher when attaching them? I taped the petals about 2.5 inches from the bottom of the petal downwards. Thanks!!

  22. So gorgeous! I love these! Thank you!

  23. Completely unrelated to gorg-rose question – where did you get that nailpolish?

  24. Hi Kelly,

    Ill be making these flowers for my wedding centerpieces and Bridesmaids. I wanted to ask if there was anything special about the Doublette Crepe Paper in comparison to other places that sell it? I also wanted to ask if these flowers have been done smaller and more relative to a natural size rose? I want to do smaller roses for the centerpieces and the ginormous ones for my bridesmaids. Do you think one flower per bridesmaid at this size is adequate or should I do bunches of three (same size) like you have in the photos? Last question I promise (lol) My colors are Red and Ivory. Mostly and all ivory wedding with red accents. How can I incorporate these different colors into the flowers?

    All help and advice is much appreciated. You did an AWESOME job with these flowers and I’m so excited to see how mine turn out… especially since I’m doing different sizes.

  26. I made one rose per bridesmaid (200%) for my wedding and they were amazing! Great photos too. I carried three smaller ones. Kelly, what is the email address I can send a photo to? They turned out great!

  27. Approximate cost to make roses, love them! They don’t have to be huge, something for perhas a vase? Wuld that work, not 200 or 150 can you go smaller? I use to make wreaths for front doos, Spring, Summer, Christmas, etc. But stopped for awhile, I lived @ Michaels Craft Store. I enjoyed doing crafts, relaxing an being creative @same time. Thank You

  28. Great! Thanks for sharing!

  30. So so so pretty!!! I really loved these roses.


  31. we are doing a ‘Queen of Hearts’ shower for my niece and making these out of white butcher paper (that you can purchase by the roll) on white painted tree branches in three sizes: One without enlarging, one at 150% and the other at 200%. Some of the petals I have taken and literally wadded up them up, then straightened out before rolling the edges on a pencil and subsequently used smaller diameter rolling tools for the smallest rose (ie: chop stick). And the others i have done with just the straight paper. It’s a little bit more creative challenging since it is not crepe paper and thus does not have that stretching or cupping ability as easily but it does work! They look absolutely fabulous especially with being all white just like the poor Rabbits in the Queens garden who had planted the wrong coloured roses instead of red 😉

  32. I’ve been following this DIY and made a couple of flowers using the single, heavyweight floral crepe paper and some regular floral tape sold at a popular craft chain store. I made one that was not enlarged and one that was 150%. They were both a pain in the butt! They look pretty, but I don’t think my patience can handle any more dealing with floral tape. Which brand do you use? Whichever brands I’ve tried out just get me incredibly frustrated. I know that I’m doing the floral tape correctly (stretch, apply, smooth, repeat), but I think I’m just getting cheap floral tape, but I don’t know which kind to buy online. Thanks for the tutorial!

  33. Hi,
    I was wondering where you got your dress shown in the picture? I love it!

  34. I was wondering why ur darker color looks reddish/pink and on the crepe paper website it’s called bubblegum and it looks soooo similar to the cream pink middle color? Just making sure it was the right colors or if your pictures were true to the color or edited? I just LOVE the colors and look u did in the pic and want to recreate them for my wedding?

  35. I absolutely loved this!

  36. I was wondering where double sided crepe paper can be found or if there is an alternative? Thanks girl! :)

    1. Hello, I just wanted to share a great website that carries the double sided and regular crepe paper sheets. It’s called Rose Mille, their website is rosemille.com. They have a lot of unusual craft items too.

      I absolutely LOVE your blog.

  37. Hi,

    I am thinking of making this with regular crepe paper. do you have a photo of your flower made from regular crepe? I’m trying to cut down on costs, which is why i wanted to do the reg. paper than the doublet

  38. that looks gorgeous ♡

  39. hi kelly! i was wondering on the steps showing how to make the rose was that color the bubblegum? because im making it for my mother on valentines day

  40. I cant get the paper to stay curled!! It curls for 10 mins or so and shrinks back down!

  41. Hi! I would like to know if i can buy one or a couple of flowers! I’m from quėbec, canada ! Thank you!

  45. Hi kelly,
    I wanted to make some of these for my upcoming wedding as fun props for photos but I’m not sure how much doublette crepe paper I need to order. I want to make sure I’m reading/understanding your directions correctly. To make 1 flower do I need 3 full pieces of crepe paper to obtain the 15 large heart shaped petals and 5 smaller petals? Thank you!

  47. Hi, I just have a quick question. I want to make these for my girlfriend and i was wondering how many crepe papers i would need for one flower. I bought 2 crepe papers for each color of the rose and 2 olive green paper. Would 2 crepe paper make 15 heart shaped petals and 5 small ones? Thank you very much!

  62. Hi! I am having trouble figuring out to enlarge your templates. I know this should probably be the least of my problems. I copied it to word and enlarged to 200%, but i can not figure out how to get each shape on one piece of paper.

  63. What is the gauge size of these stem wires you used?

  74. hi! seriously LOVE this post and just ordered all of the materials to make these for girl friends on valentine’s day. I noticed your small petal and heart shape in the close-up tutorial do not look like the same shapes on the template provided… will this effect the outcome of the flower?? i’m really hoping they will look exactly like they do in the photos, so i’m wondering if I should alter the template to be more like your close-up photos (small petal – slightly heart shaped, and big heart more of a wavy heart) or will the template produce the same looking flowers? thank you in advance!! xxo
