It’s DIY Tuesday again, and today I will be working on some gorgeous DIY paper flowers. These are so fun and easy to make, you might find yourself making a whole field of these darling flowers! Not only are they a fun and simple project, but they are fairly simple to construct so you brides can delegate these out to your whole wedding party (the groom might even be able to handle this one).
- solid color cardstock
- circle punches (1 in – 2 in)
- hot glue gun
Step One: Start by using your largest circle punch (2 in.) and cutting a circle from your cardstock. This will be used to form the base of your flower. Next, using whichever size punch you choose, begin to cut out circles to create your flower petals. I used about 7 circles to create my flowers.
Step Two: Once you have cut out the desired amount of circles, cut each circle in half.
Step Three: Then, stack the halves with about 10, and fold those in half. Now, you can start the center of your flower.
Step Four: Take two of your folded halves, and line the straight edge with hot glue. Place them on the base of your flower; with the points facing outward (they will make a square shape at the center).
Step Five: Once you have created your center, you will again line the straight edges of your folded halves with glue and you will begin to place them in a circular fashion around the center of your flower. You can choose to have the petals facing straight upwards to give the flower a close look, or facing out to make the flower look as though it’s blooming. Continue this step until your flower reaches your desired size.
You can group these flowers and hang them from a garland for a beautiful romantic look, or add some wire and twine like I did and create your own custom cake topper. These are a great unique touch to add some lovely flowers to your wedding. Oh and did I mention that these will never wilt?
