Can’t watch the video or missed some of the steps? We have the tutorial below for you as well.
How to Make Paper Flowers:
Start by cutting all of your pieces with your Cricut machine. I have the cut file made for you here. You will need to rearrange the mats to make the best use of your card stock, however. Just move and flip the pieces until they fit the best. Then make a small slit in the bottom of each petal as shown below.
The larger the petal the longer the slit should be. Repeat for all of your petal pieces.
Then you want to curl all of the petals. Just wrap the card stock ends around a pencil as shown below.
You will get curled ends on your paper as shown below. Repeat for all of the flower petal pieces.
NOTE: The largest three sizes get formed with the curls going OUT. The smallest two sizes get formed with the curls going in. I put them in two different stacks so as not to get messed up when making giant paper flowers like these.
Add hot glue to one of the ends and fold over the petal as shown below. Repeat this process for all petals.
I did the first three sizes as shown above. The smallest two sizes were done in the opposite direction but using the same method.
Just add hot glue to one of the sides and fold over. Hold with your hand until the hot glue cools enough to be secure.
Now we can begin to start forming large paper flowers with the petals. Start with the largest size and use hot glue to secure the petals together at the bottom.
There are four petals so they should look like four corners slightly overlapping when complete.
Then keep layering on the sizes with additional hot glue.
Once you have all three of the largest sizes complete, set that aside. Assemble the smallest two sizes in a similar way but off to the side. Start with the three smallest petals and hot glue together.
Then do the next size and add the smallest to the center.
Add this center piece to your flower.
Your DIY paper flowers are complete! You can add the leaves to the side now with hot glue or wait until you put them in place.
Giant paper flowers are a great addition to a party or even an entire wall in a bedroom. Whatever you decide, you are sure to love how easy these are to make!
Now that you know how to make paper flowers, will you make some for your next event? I mean just look at how big they are!
These fun large paper flowers are the perfect way to amp up any party!
Grab your supplies and your Cricut machine and make your own version. You can use the cut file I provided or make another one in a different shape. So many possibilities and so little time!
