I was inspired by the paper roses made by Megan Galante and have been meaning to give this craft a try of my own. After spending a good hour or so trimming, cutting, and hot gluing, I finally had created my own version of paper flowers. The flowers are so versatile and can be strung out on ribbon, used on top of a present, arranged into a table centerpiece, or just toss them onto a desk or countertop for a bit of color.
Crafting these flowers are quite simple and they don’t require a lot of precise measurements. I think it’s great how each flower turns out slightly unique. I’ve included a brief “how-to” for those of you interested in trying these out.
The only tools required to make the flowers are light cardstock of any color (I used pink), a pencil/pen, scissors, and a hot glue gun. Using the following outlines as a guide, cut out the different petal sizes from your cardstock.
Assemble the flower as follows:
Also, I tried making the flowers with all types of paper, such as catalogue paper to create a different kind of look:
I would love to see your creations! Post a comment or link to your blog showing off your paper flowers!
