Paper Roses is Marie Osmond's debut studio album that was released on September 22, 1973 on MGM Records & Kolob Records.

The album's name came from its title track, "Paper Roses" (a cover of an Anita Bryant Top 10 hit from 1961).

Osmond's version of the song reached #1 on the Billboard Country Chart and #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1973, making her the first female country singer to have a #1 hit with her debut single since Connie Smith with her song "Once a Day" in 1964.
