I love paper flowers. They are vintage and romantic and so beautiful. I've always wanted to make them so for our teaparty I decided to give it a try. I looked all over the internet to find a tutorial and I'm sure there is one buried somewhere but I couldn't find one I liked, so I made it up as I went. If this is a little bit rough around the edges I apologize in advance.
|Things you will need.|
The first thing you need is a template for the flower petals. I drew my own and am happy to share.
You will also need:
Cardstock, whatever pattern or colors you like (I used scraps from my paper bin)
Wooden skewers ( I found mine at the grocery store)
Brads medium sized (watch out these things are sharp)
Glue Dots 3/16in mini sized (my most favorite thing ever)*
3D foam stickers*
Double sided tape
*note: You can use double sided tape instead of these but the flower won't be as sturdy.
|Step 2 Yay there's six|
|Here are the brads. Be careful with these I stabbed myself a couple of times.|
|Step 3 front|
|Step 5 back|
|step 7 and done|
