Easy Paper flowers with templates and instructions
|Designs are intended for personal use only please.|
I know, I know half you rolled your eyes, and I was one of them.
I'm trying that whole be positive thing even when your day just stinks. But I get to type to you lovelies so that brightens my morning!
After receiving my new photography lighting set this weekend I figured I needed a new flower to try it out. Enter paper lotus!
Side note: if any of my readers are fellow bloggers or artists and struggle with good pictures like I did, I highly recommend a lighting set!
The templates come with 2 petal sizes to make the lotus and I thought designing a leaf pad would be fun too.
If you want to check out the templates click here. Templates are compatible with Silhouette and Cricut or if you are brave go ahead and hand cut! Otherwise keep reading for the video tutorial!
I went a little nuts with my photos. I love pink and sparkles!
For this flower I recommend using the following tools:
- 176 gram/65lb weighted card stock (I used a shiny pink here, my favorite!)
- Rolling tool find it on amazon.
- Glue gun and sticks
- Templates of course :-)
