How to Make a Star Wars Paper Rose

Amy Ratcliffe | February 10, 2014

If you’re planning to pick up flowers this Valentine’s Day, you’re probably going with roses. It’s the most popular choice for the holiday, and for good reason — roses are classic. You can’t go wrong. The only negatives are that florists know the stems are in high demand and mark up prices, and no matter how beautiful they are, real flowers die. Why not opt for a paper, Star Wars-themed solution? You can craft lovely, personalized roses from the pages of comic books, magazines, or books.

One of my favorite activities at summer camp when I was a kid was crafting. I wasn’t remotely athletic. The camp’s pond was a muddy brown, and I didn’t like to imagine what was beneath the surface. There wasn’t horseback riding and only a few hikes so I spent as much time as possible making friendship bracelets, creating images with Perler beads, and experimenting with Shrinky Dinks. I sadly didn’t know anything about Star Wars at that age (I’m a late bloomer), otherwise I’m sure I would have been making Leia buns from yarn and paper-mache astromechs.

It’s just a fun way to express your fandom. Tons of fans choose to funnel their passion for Star Wars into crafting home goods and wearables.
