From the depths of winter, the colors of spring have arrived! To celebrate the season, we went into our crafting room and started working on something bright. Here you’ll see the results: bouquets of paper flowers made from cutouts and collages of patterns we found on Shutterstock. See our flower arrangements below, then keep reading to learn how to make your own.
How to Make Your Own Paper Flowers
Supplies (pictured below)
- Three large paper petal cutouts
- One (or more) smaller petal cutout
- One longer strip of paper (approximately 3″x2″)
Starting from the center of the flower, using the inner blade of your scissors, curl each petal away from you.
Fold each petal inward, toward the center of the cutout.
Glue the cutouts together, rotating each one around the center of the flower to create a layered look.
Fold the long strip of paper in half and carefully cut small slits along the folded edge.
Curl the slits using the inner blade of your scissors.
Glue the edges of the strip together to create a circle, and glue it to the center of the flower.
Voila! Now you too can create bouquets of flowers to welcome spring.
