Rolled or Lollipop Flower Tutorial

Good afternoon all,
I am just posting a quick "how to" on the roses I made on the card I posted a few days ago. I have received several emails with questions. I hope this will help :-)

As always, if you have ANY questions, please feel free to email me at:

Okay....Here we go!
To start, you will cut out the flowers in the desired paper. You can get the cutting file HERE. It has the following formats: SVG, GSD, WPC and KNK.
Next I Inked the edges of BOTH sides. I wasn't too careful about how I inked as I wanted the flowers to have a "shabby" appearance.

After inking the edges, I spritzed some Glimmer Mist onto my mat and used a sponge to brush it onto the rose. 100% coverage. If you don't have Glimmer Mist, you can always use plain water.


Here is a shot of brushing the Glimmer Mist On.
Now you will begin to roll the rose. With the papter moist, it will be very easy to bend the paper without tearing it. You can use anything you have that has a round, smooth barrel. I used the barrel of my chalk applicator. Just begin to wrap it around your object. The smaller the object, th tighter the roll.

Here is a shot of the paper rolled around just once.
Here is a shot of it rolled a few times. I just tried to keep the "roll or wrap" as parallel and or straight with the rest of the roll.

Here I am at the end. The middle will ultimately be your bottom.

Now I just attached a glue dot to the bottom and will "sit" the rest of the rose on that.

Here is the finished rose. This shot was actually taken BEFORE I glued it down. When you do this with "moist" paper, it will keep its "roll" or shape real well.

Here are a few variations. Some were the same, I just rolled them "tighter" the little one was the file sized down and the darker pink ones are from a patterned paper that had a white core.
The sky is the limit with what and how you can make these roses.

I have been "learning" the paper cutting/crafting for about six months reading every blog I came across to learn all I could. This is the most fun technique that I have tried. Thank you for your post!
