Paper flowers

Making paper flowers is a fun and creative DIY craft project that you can do with just a few simple supplies. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making paper flowers:

Materials:

  • Colored tissue paper or crepe paper
  • Scissors
  • Floral wire
  • Floral tape

Instructions:

Cut several pieces of tissue paper or crepe paper into squares or rectangles. The size of the squares will determine the size of your flower, so choose the size that you want your flowers to be. For example, 8-inch squares work well for a medium-sized flower.

Stack the tissue paper or crepe paper sheets on top of each other, making sure that the edges are lined up evenly.

Starting at one end of the paper stack, fold the paper accordion-style, making each fold about 1 inch wide.

Once you’ve folded the entire stack of paper, use scissors to round the edges of each end of the paper stack. You can also cut the edges into a point for a different look.

Take a piece of floral wire and wrap it around the center of the folded paper stack, twisting the wire tightly to secure it in place.

Use scissors to trim the ends of the paper stack, making them rounded or pointed.

Beginning at the center of the flower, carefully separate each layer of paper, pulling them upwards and outwards towards you.

Repeat this process for each layer of paper until you’ve separated all the layers and your flower looks full and fluffy.

Take a piece of floral tape and wrap it around the base of the flower, starting at the top of the wire and wrapping down to the bottom of the stem.

Continue wrapping the floral tape down the length of the wire, covering it completely.

Once you’ve covered the wire with floral tape, you can shape the stem of the flower by bending it into a curve or a spiral.

And that’s it! You now have a beautiful paper flower that you can use to decorate your home, make a bouquet, or give as a gift. Repeat the process with different colors and sizes of paper to create a variety of different flowers.
