Paper Flower Tutorial – PART 1

This little bloom was made with MM Whimsy collection - single sided paper


For those of you who know me personally, you might find it hard to believe that I love paper flowers as much as I do.  Let’s just say that I am not the most “girly girl” that you will find.  But there is something about a beautiful piece of paper that has been transformed into something that I might see blooming in a garden that really does make me smile.  And making them…that’s even better!

So I thought it might be fun to put together a handmade flower tutorial series here at SCRaPPY CaNuCK STuDios that do not require any fancy die cuts or punches.

The dark purple are Bazzil. Made for my friend Paula!

All this week, I will be posting a series of videos and photo-based tutorials that will have you blooming flowers all over the place!  And each day, I will also feature a tutorial that I came across on another scrappy person’s blog – just to make sure that by the end of this week you are up to your eyeballs in petals!

So let’s get started!  My very favourite of all paper flowers are the rolled rosettes!  Here’s my take on these pretty embellishments:

And once you are finished making a set of these pretties, check out some beautiful poppy-like flowers over at “A Little Hut” by Patricia Zapata! I think I will make a set of these today!

So what do think?  Was this a good start to the week?

Your method is perfect, easy, with just a snail shape and a few hearts and here we go!! I have eight menus to make with a total of 24 roses for their decorations and will definitely choose your way of making paper roses!
