Tutorial Monday: DIY Paper Flowers

Hi Folks!

Louella here again, sharing you some simple ideas how to make a DIY Paper Flower.

Paper flowers have been a growing trend at many recent projects - so fun and a great DIY project and likely more cost effective than real flowers.

 
These paper roses are relatively easy to make & just adorable.

Here are the steps.

Step 1:
Look for any Free Paper Flower Templates of your choice in the internet. 
(Unless you have some dies and machines to use in making your template. )


Step 2:
Print and Cut the chosen template.

(This is the template I used for the flower above photo. However, you can use any  flower template in different sizes)


Step 3:
Trace the template onto the paper you want to use and cut the image out.
Step 4 :
Distressed edges to make it stand out even more.

Step 5:
Shape the petals with any stylus available.
 (Cushioned surface to apply different levels of pressure for molding paper shapes.)
 

Step 6:
Enhancing details.
 You can put stamens,pearls,brads and etc in the center.

 Then, you're done! :-)

These are a brilliant (and inexpensive) way to jazz up and add a little fun to your projects.


NOTE : 
You can create as many templates you want.Just be creative! :-)


Hope you all like this fast and simple  tutorial.
