How to Make Paper Flowers

Description

In this tutorial we will show you how to make paper anemone flowers. These playful flowers make a simple decoration you can use at parties, in your home, or to add a little color to your office.

Materials

Instructions

  • First, gather your materials. You’ll need to print this PDF by Lia Griffith in color, double sided, on regular paper or cardstock. Alternately, you can draw your own shapes on a piece of cardstock in your color of choice. You will want four larger petals, three smaller petals, a large circle, a small circle, and a star shape for the base. You’ll also need a pair of scissors, a glue gun, and floral wire—any size will work, but we used 16 Gauge wire. We also used half inch floral tape which is optional.

  • Cut out your petals, the star shaped base of the flower, and the black circles to make the inside of the flower.
