Easy Giant Paper Flower Tutorial
Lately my home studio has been overflowing with new flower designs.
I think my inspirations come in waves!
Last week I created and filmed two videos on building these Hawaiian style flowers.
So for this weeks tutorial I'm going to
give you a quick run down in case you didn't catch it on our Youtube channel!

Hawaiian Style Flower Tutorial
There are 2 styles of templates I will be using here.
One is a single layer flower, Hawaiian style, and the
other is our Alana style template which is used
to create the layered look.
- 7 petal cuts in 2 sizes (see templates)
- Glue gun
- 65 lb card stock
- Circle punch
- Medallion template (included in Hawaiian templates)
- Rhinestones and half of a foam ball (optional)
1. Unlike my other flower tutorials, for
this flower no slit will be cut in the bottom. Instead we will
be rolling the flower at the bottom.
Think like you want to form a cone.
2. This is optional but creates a nice look.
Cut smaller sizes of the Hawaiian templates in a
different color and lay the
smaller one inside the other.
3. Start building the flowers by gluing the
inner side to the inner side of another petal.
Keep going will you have used all the petals
4. Close the flower
5. Glue a circle over the back
6. Glue your medallion over the front side.
7. Add in your jewel center if desired.
Keep reading below if you want to
achieve the layered design!
Alana Style Flower
Alright now if you want the layered look then
stop at step 5 above and pick up here:
I use my Alana style templates when creating
the layer styled flower. Alana is only slightly
different in shape but comes with 2 more petal sizes.
It's pretty simple from here...
You will need to add in your second
layer of petals by gluing the tip of the cone
down to the center of the first layer.
Do this till you have 4 layers complete.
I ended up with 6 petals in layers 2-3 and
5 petals in layer 4.
Glue a circle over the center
Add in a pom pom or jewel center. or
combine both by wrapping the pom pom
around the jewel ball.
Watch this video on the Alana flower.
Both the Hawaiian and Alana templates make a 21 inch flower diameter!
