DIY Paper Flowers Supplies
Cardstock for flowers and leaves
3/16th dowel, or anything about that size for wrapping the flowers. We used the end of a paint brush!
Downloadable Flower Template
4 Different Sizes (pdf)
Print out the free template and firmly hold it over a piece of cardstock while you cut it out on the lines.
Starting with the outside end begin to wrap it around a small dowel or the end of a small paintbrush. A pencil can work but its a bit too large and makes it difficult.
Once you get to the end you will have the other ends round piece left.
The rest of the flower will sit on this “base” as shown. FYI even if you let go of the flower it will stay together.
Place a glob of glue onto the base.
You need to use enough glue to attach the entire flower.
Press your flower down carefully, twisting it in tighter if needed.
Hold it for a few seconds. (This is what the hands of a crafter looks like… covered in paint!)
That’s how to make DIY paper flowers! Cut out your leaves and glue on if desired.
I’m a beginner so all your nice instructions are greatly appreciated!!
Glad you find them helpful! Thanks so much for visiting. Ü
I love them! How do u make the yellow flower? It looks different from the pink one. If it a different template?
You’re right Maureen… It’s been a while and I know we didn’t make a template for that one but I forget why. I found the pics of it if you want to try to make your own. Ü
