{Pretty Crafty} Easy Paper Flower Tutorial

Today, I am sharing another crafty item I created for the English Garden Inspired Spring Party shoot I styled for the spring issue of Everyday Party Magazine. For the favor bags, I made gift tags that featured a handmade paper flower. These flowers were so easy to make and they don't take much time at all.

A few tips:

  • To make the flower a little more dimensional, I curled the edges of the petals with my fingers, you can also use a wooden dowel or pencil to get the same effect.  I also inked the edges of the flowers, as well, with a bit of Distress Ink.

  • Keep a small bowl of ice water near you in case you get burned by the hot glue, no fun making pretty things with burned fingers!

  • You don't have to use a 1" circle punch, you can make the flowers as big as you'd like.  You might need more flowers if you do go bigger - but I'm not 100% sure - if you happen to make them using larger circles, please share a picture and leave it in the comments box, I'd love to see how it turned out.

HAPPY CRAFTING!
