How to Craft a 3D Rose Panel

Designer Craft Connection is having a blog hop sponsored by DCWV's Petal Paper. I'd never worked with Petal Paper before so I ran a few tests before I decided upon what I was going to create. I will share those experiments with you before I share the tutorial for my project.

I received a package of white Petal Paper to work with for this blog hop.

Right now the papers are only available at JoAnn stores in the US.

I was wondering about coloring the Petal Paper.

I tried coloring the Petal Paper with watercolor.

Then I tried iZink spray dye.

Then I tried Nuvo Shimmer Powers with water.

Finally, I tried Americana acrylic paint.

All the different colors adhered to the Petal Paper, some better than others. None of them carried through to the other side. I think the acrylic paint had the best coverage. But since none of them seemed to have full coverage, I chose to leave the Petal Paper white for my project.

  • Extreme Sheen Gold
  • Paintbrush
  • small canvas
  • Cricut Maker
  • hot glue gun
  • Best Glue Ever
  • Petal Paper
  • Sheer ribbon
  • cardstock
  • tape runner

I covered the canvas with gold paint; it took three applications to get good coverage.

I used the Cricut Maker to cut leaves and the shape to roll into roses.
I cut using the crepe paper setting.


Once the gold paint dried, I glued leaves to the canvas.


Then the flowers were added in a pleasing arrangement.


I then covered a whiteboard with a ribbon that contained gold leaves.
It is adhered on the back with tape runner tape.

Then I hot glued the canvas to the ribbon covered board.


To finish it off, I hot glued a soda can tab to the back for hanging.
