DIY WEDDING: PAPER FLOWER TUTORIAL




Afternoon lovelies :-) I am over the moon to have a beautiful DIY tutorial for you today.




Susie and Claire from Knot & Pop (who are the newest wedding stylists on the block) sent over this super sweet paper flower DIY.




Use your flowers to create a mass installation such as the heart above, or pop them on sticks and into vases. Experiment with colour, pattern or even the texture to make your paper flowers work for your event.

Step One | Needed: Standard weight paper. Pencil. Scissors or Scalpel. PVA Glue. Bamboo skewer.

Step Two| Create two heart shapes, one a roughly third bigger than the other. Ensure you have a symmetrical shape. These will form the templates for your petals.

Step Three| To make one flower, cut out the following:

6x of each size petal

A circle of paper (size of a 10 pence)

A 5cm strip of paper and fringe

Step Four| Curl the pointed end of the petal round a pencil towards you and the wide end of the petal away from you. This will give the flower a 3D shape.

Step Five | Using your paper circle as a base, layering one on top of another, glue your larger petals clockwise to make a flower head.

Step Six | Repeat this process with the smaller petals.

Step Seven | Roll your fringed strip of paper into a stamen.

Step Eight | Glue the stamen to the central of the flower and tease out the fringing.

Et voila, one paper beautiful flower.
