Spring Flower Tutorial: Folded Paper Flower

Thursday, June 09, 2011

I have been major neglecting my blog and Spring Flower Tutorials lately. Do you ever feel like you're just not feeling it? Being a crafter, I know everyone experiences this sometimes. I think moving from last weekend has left me still so very much exhausted and my body has hard a hard time catching up again. Sometimes, I wish we had batteries inside us where all we would need is jumper cables to give us the boost we need.

Well, here is the second to last spring flower tutorial, and then I will do a wrap up of the different flowers I featured on my blog. This one is a flower made from a folded strip. It's very easy to make and I like that it doesn't take too long to create. It's nice when you want a cute flower to add to your layout. So let's get started, shall we?

1. Start with a one-inch wide strip that is 12 inches long.

2. Add adhesive to the back of one end of the strip and paste it to the front of the other end of the strip.

Once you have done this, you should have a circle that looks like the photo above. 3. Next, begin bunching up the circle and push the top of the circle strip in and down. It should look like the below as you are doing this.

4. Adhere a small square to the back of the flower for reinforcement and durability.

5. Add a pretty brad or button to the middle, and there you have it!

Things to remember:
-The bigger you want your flower to be, the wider and longer you will make your strip of paper.
-These flowers are perfect for making "paper medals" for someone to wear {by simply adding a pin to the back} and are also perfect for hanging {just punch some holes}. Here is a larger version that I made for my mom for Mother's Day.

Happy Flower Making! Stay tuned for the last flower tutorial post and the prettiest flower of them all (in my opinion). Here's a preview of the last flower tutorial:

That'll post this weekend! Until then, have a wonderful Friday!
