DIY Paper Flowers

I love getting flowers. Any kind, really; I can even relish in a cheap grocery store bouquet. (The trick is to take it apart and make separate little bunches—just ditch the baby’s breath.)

I’m always trying to invent a new way to make paper flowers. Here are some lovely examples…

Paper flower garden

From Maya*Made (one of my fave blogs)…she used shredder scissors.


I love these quilled flowers from Garden Party.


Flowers made from sewing patterns found at Polka Dot Rabbit. For real!


And lastly, from one of my favorite magazines, Parents (wink, wink), here are flowers made from catalogs and magazines. Blair Stocker from Wise Craft is the genius crafter behind these.

What’s better than a flower that doesn’t wilt?
