Spring Mantle Decor - Giant Paper Roses

I have had an itch to make some giant paper flowers, but using my scrapbook paper.  I have had no specific occasion to make them, like a wedding or party, so I thought why not just use them to decorate my mantle!  Lets turn my mantle into something pretty for spring!

These flowers are fun and easy, plus they use scrapbook paper and the Xyron Mega runner!!!!  I love the gold, black, and white look of these flowers, it really makes them pop!!  Here is a video tutorial on how to make the flowers.

Here are some close up pictures of the roses and gold Adore banner.

If you want to make you own flowers you can either use the trace and cut method or cut it with your cutting machine.  Click on the flower below for the trace and cut method, instructions on on the printable!


1) You start by cutting out the 3 flowers with the template above.

2) Cut the flowers do you have 1 that is whole (5 petals), 1 with 4 petals (the left over is a single petal), and one cut into 3 petals and 2 petals. So now you have 5 layers: 5 petals, 4 petals, 3 petals, 2 petals, and 1 petal. 

3) Roll the edges of the petals down to make then look pretty, there are so many ways to do this, pinch them, roll them, twist them, have fun with this!

4) Then add adhesive to each flower to make them into flower, the gold flower above is the 4 pointed flower glued to be a complete flower. Stack the flowers into each other, nesting them, largest at the bottom, 1 single petal at the top. Use the button to string them all together, like beads on a string.

Thanks for stopping by!!
