My 9 year old is the crafter of all crafters. She spends hours in our office working on crafts that she’s googled or come up with in her own head. I LOVE IT! Obvi. When she showed me these adorable paper roses I knew that they would make the cutest Valentine’s Day craft. The supplies are basic and the how-to is super simple to do on your own or with your kids.
Scissors, pencil, craft glue, craft paper in colors of your choice, toothpicks (mine are a little longer and wider than the normal size but the smaller ones would work too) and a circle approximately the size of a ramekin to trace.
Trace and cut the circle out on a piece of the colored craft paper.
Cut the paper in a spiral starting smaller and getting larger.
Begin rolling the spiral starting on the smaller small end, rolling tightly.
Once the spiral is completely rolled, attach the bottom of the flower using the craft glue.
Insert the toothpick into the bottom of the flower, poking a hole in the paper and pushing the toothpick in through the top.
That’s it! So easy and so cute.
I used them as cupcake toppers, on Valentine’s Day cards and as Valentine’s decor.
