How To Make Book Page Roses

I love these paper roses created by Jen holz from JLH upcycling .They are super easy to make and there are so many different ways they can be displayed in your home. I'm even thinking wedding bouquets?
So heres how Jen made it . (Don't forget to view our other members crafty projects by clicking here!)


3 book pages, a scissors, and a hot glue gun, pearl beads (optional) and wire flower stems (optional).

-Keeping the book pages stacked, cut the pages down to approximately 4x6.

-Next, cut the book pages into a circle.
-For the next step, cut the pages into a spiral shape

-I usually start off the spiral with a thinner strip and gradually create a thicker strip as I create the spiral. Finish the spiral by creating a tab in the middle of the circle

- Starting with the outer end of your spiral and keeping all 3 pages together, start rolling your strips inward into a spiral shape to create the rose's center.

- Then, as you keep rolling the strips inward to create the rose's shape, hold the unrolled strips together with your left hand.
Once you reach the end of the strips, put a dab of hot glue on the top of each tab and secure to the bottom of the rose.
