Maybe buy a kit from Paper Source and then copy it?

@vicozzie: I’ve made a whole bunch of coffee filter roses using Martha Stewart’s template- but I did find that with the last filters I bought they were just a wee bit too small… so I haven’t tried making a whole flower out of the new ones, but they seem to have cut out ok anyway. My best tips are to do it while you’re watching tv once you get the hang of it, it’ll make time go by faster, to have patience- definitely the first few weren’t so nice for me either, and have some degunker nearby if you’re going to make a bunch at once)- i use Simple Green- because your fingers will get really sticky from the tape and it actually makes it more frustrating. The trick to getting the first one to stick is to wrap it really tight and then tape it like 1.5 inches down the stem, then be gentle with the next one and also tape down the stem, then you shouldn’t have a problem getting the rest to stay in place, but I usually tape down the stem anyway after each layer, it just kind of makes it a little smoother looking at the end. Let me know if there’s any other tips I can give you- I’ve seriously made a whole bunch of them!

Try Martha’s crepe paper roses… they’re CRAZY easy to make, and crepe paper is very forgiving.
