video tutorial—tissue paper rosettes

I have gotten a lot of emails and comments from several of you who were having a little bit of difficulty making their tissue paper rosettes.  The word “twist” was a bit confusing and it is hard for me to explain how I was twisting mine.  So I went ahead and made quick video tutorial for Tissue Paper Rosettes.

Now I must warn you…this is not a high quality production. I simply propped up my cell phone between some cracker boxes and had my son push record and stop when I gave him a cue. He he! But hopefully you will be able to see how I am twisting the paper. I tried to get in as close as possible so you could see the tissue rosette in as much detail as possible. Hope this helps you.

I also made some of these and hung them in my daughter’s room which you can see here: Crepe Paper Flower Balls

These are the perfect decoration for Valentine’s Day and they are really inexpensive to make.  They just take time.  I would suggest making these when you sit down to relax and watch television or a movie!

    Oh, I just love your paper flowers! Possibly due to having to rush I didn’t see the part explaining how to bind them together? So happy too find your nice site too! I make hair accessories, when I have time. Patricia

    Thank you so much for posting the video! Very helpful. I found a photo of this on Pinterest. I’m planning a bachelorette party/bridal shower at my house next month, and I’m definitely using your ideas. I got crepe paper in 2 shades of pink and rolled them together so the flowers are multicolored. They look great!

      Thanks so much for sharing that. I bet they turned out so pretty. I love the idea of two colors. Good Luck with your bridal shower. I bet it will be so much fun and the bride will really appreciate all your efforts.

    These roses are awesome but I was always afraid to try them until I stumbled upon your tutorial. This is the best tutorial I have seen showing how to twist these roses. Thank you so much for sharing this information.

    What website do you recomend for buying big styrofoam balls for a low price? I’ve looked everywhere and they are just too expensive!

  12. Kathi Townzen says

    LOVE this idea! Found it on my niece’s Pinterest site and repinned it! Your video is clear as a bell! THANK YOU!!! I’ve subscribed! Glad I found you!

  13. Heather says

    Ok.. I love these. I am actually inspired to implement these into my centerpieces for my May wedding. I’m pumped!!! You make it look so easy :) I ‘ve got my tissue paper and other materials ready. I’ll be sure to stop back by and show you my finished centerpiece!!

    One question though, how do you make the super big rosettes like in the first few pictures at the top of the page?
    Do I need more tissue paper?! Help!

  14. Priscilla says

    Thank you for sharing this! I didn’t know how easy this was to make & inexpensive. So excited to make these for my house & share with my craft club!

    I love this video on how to make the rosettes, but now I have searched for the big yellow and orange sunflowers that you showed you made at the beginning and you commented that they were a Martha Stewart kit…..I can’t find the kit now anywhere online. Can you tell me what kind of paper and size of the paper that was used for these? And how are they connected in the center? I think I can figure out the rest. Thanks!!

  16. says

    What size ball did you use for those bouquets in the picture? How many rosettes would you need to cover that ball? I am planning decorations for a luncheon and need to know how much to buy.

  17. Lissa says

    So beautiful, bless you! The video is a good tutorial, concise, but answers s all the questions. I also like how you show some problems and how you resolve that, so many people try to show it perfectly but that can be misleading when you try yourself and find problems
