How To Make Crepe Paper Rosettes – Scarlet and I were looking for a fun activity to do in the afternoon, and my studio is full of paper (we love tissue paper). She wanted to make a sign for her bedroom door and I wanted to try a new way of making a sign on tissue paper. Therefore, we wrapped a beautiful rosette flower and made a beautiful “S” from it. This project is so easy and so cute! Let me show you how we made our rosette letter after the jump…
First you need a letter. I traced this S loosely with a pencil on a piece of foam I had lying around, then cut it out with a craft knife, but you can also buy a cardboard letter at most craft stores.

Now to make your rosettes. First you will cut the tissue paper. Don’t worry if they are different sizes or have rough edges, they all add charm. I like to make them 4-5 inches wide and 10-12 inches long.

Grab one edge and start rolling and pinching, making sure the other edge is up. Instead, you can roll it with the edges pointed up, but this will make a different kind of flower. For the rosette, clip the edges. Fold and pinch and glue to your letter, or if you prefer you can make all your flowers first and just stick everything to the bottom, then glue to your letter later.
This was a fun way to spend the evening and would make a great centerpiece for a party. We will hang ours on Scarlet’s bedroom door.
