Watch this video's explanation on how to make a paper rose from a napkin in a very simple manner. Use a paper napkin which is quite large to enable you to make a better looking rose. Turn the napkin around your finger a number of times to form the rose bud. Fasten tightly the lower end of the rose bud by turning the paper a number of times and open up the rose bud in shape. Use the loose end of the paper napkin to make the leaf. In order to do this attach it to the lower end of the rose bud and turn it around a number of times so that it fastens itself better. Keep turning around the napkin several times to make the stem of the rose in a thin linear shape until you reach the furthest end of the paper napkin.
