• Flower DIY

    This flowers where made with a cover paper, but you can use construction paper (cover), copy paper, scrapbooking paper, newspaper, or high end art paper.


    You will need:



    Spatula, cake knife or pencil

    Glue or hot glue

    For the base, cardboard


    Step 1


    I provided a template to download, but usually I do it freehand, Nature is not perfect, and thats what makes these flowers look a little more real.


    You will need to cut 
8-9 large petals

    6-7 medium petals

    4-6 small ones

    save small pieces, some times they help for the pistil



    Step 2

    Once you cut the petal (see picture) you will cut the bottom about an inch or so (depending on the size of the petal) glue the 2 parts (sides) to make it fold naturally and… then you curl the petal, this can be done with a spatula, a cake knife or a pencil.

    Repeat these steps with every petal in every size.


    Step 3

    Using a used gift box, foam cora or corrugated cardboard cut a circular base


    Step 4

    Start pasting each petal around the circle.


    Step 5

    Center can be 2 petals glued at the top and the bottom or using a pencil you can roll one super tight and paste it


    Look around you garden, to get new ideas on shapes for your petals.
