Today we have a little DIY treat for you!  Shanna from Ruffles and Rouge and Kathleen from JoPhoto created a tutorial for simple and easy DIY Paper Flowers!

Materials

  • Scissors
  • Cardstock Paper
  • Glue gun
  • Glitter

Directions

1. First, begin by cutting a large circle out of your cardstock.  You will be cutting this shape into a spiral.  Determine how thick or thin you’d like the spiral to be.

Note: the thicker your spiral is, the thicker your “petals” will look.  You can also manipulate the size of your flower by starting with a smaller circle for a smaller flower look and/or a larger circle with a looser twist for bigger fuller blooms.

2. Once you have decided on the thickness of your spiral, cut into the large circle, spiraling in toward the middle.  Leave a small circle in the center, as this will be the center of your flower.

3. Begin twisting the spiral starting with the outter most edge and work your way into the center circle.

4. Once you have your spiral twisted, add glue to the center circle and adhere all of your layers. Then before your glue dries, sprinkle your glitter into the center of the paper flower.

You can also use rhinestones, additional paper in a different color, broaches or any other embellishments that you want to incorporate into your flowers.

After you have finished your flowers, they are really great to add decoration to your tables, vases or even into fresh flower arrangements by adding a pipe cleaner to the center base.
