How to Make Rose Filled Heart Card
What you need:
- Colored Craft Paper – 2 to 3 different colors
- White school glue
- Pencil – to trace the template
Follow These Step by Step Instructions
You can use any color for the base card, we went with white constrruction paper in this tutorial. You can make it any shape you want, square or rectangular. We think a square ones looks nicest, unless you will also add a message on the card.
Draw a heart shape on the paper with a pencil.
Cut a round shape out of color construction paper (we have a template for this part if you need some help at the end of this tutorial). Cut it into a spiral.
Take the spiral paper and start to rolling it from the outer edge.
Keep rolling the spiral pattern until you reach the center.
Secure the rose by applying glue on the end of the paper spiral and pushing it under the flower (glue it on the bottom). White school glue is best.
Press down the roll on the center, this will secure and glue all parts of the rose.
Done making the roses? Take the card and start sticking them inside the traced heart pattern on the card. It’s best to start gluing them along the outer edge of the heart shape.
Fill the heart pattern with the paper roses.
Once you are done filling the heart, set the card aside for a while for the glue to set.
