How to Make Paper Flowers

I created this tutorial when paper flowers were newish and realized that I needed to transfer it over to my new blog! So here you go! :)

These are 12x12 sheets of cardstock. I created a few templates and duplicated it. You can see on each photo how many of each petal size petal I cut.

All stacked and ready to go. You'll need a stapler, hot glue gun (or quick adhesive of your choice and keep your scissors around.

Cut a line about 1-1 1/2" up at the bottom of each petal. Depending on how many curve you want to your petal.

Fold your petals at the base so they overlap each other a bit. I used hot glue to secure mine. You can also just staple them! The I went to the opposite end of the petal and rolled them up to get the petal and folded over and blooming look. Play around with the amount of folding you want and what looks best for whatever layer of petal you're working on.

Then take all your large finished petals and began to put them together. I hot glued one half and added them to the half of the next petal until I had a ring of petals.
