Paper Flower Tutorial – PART 2

Dandelion

The contrasting colours on this design really help to make the shape POP!

DANELIONS

This summer, I received my first ever flower from my daughter – a lovely little yellow Dandelion!  I have to admit that I used to think of these “flowers” as “weeds”, but when it was proudly delivered by a two-year old with a smile that can melt even the coldest heart, these petals were transformed in my mind forever!

So, for our second day of paper flower tutorials, I wanted to create a little something to commemorate that memory.  Capturing the round, “fringy” shape was the goal, and I love the effect created by the two contrasting colours in this design!  There are a fair number of simple steps involved, so I thought I would put together a printable PDF for you with all of the instructions.  This way, instead of printing pages of instructions from the blog, you’ll have a concise little 2 pager to keep in your book of ideas!  Get a copy of it here!

And if you are looking for even more ideas today, check out these pretty cardstock flowers over at Such a Pretty Mess.  I love the “brad-like” center that Gabrielle Pollacco creates for these pretty handmade petals.

Remember to come back tomorrow for PART 3 of the tutorial series!
