Christmas Paper Flower Tutorial


 Hello friends!  I hope you’re enjoying your week so far.

 I think it’s fair to say the blog world has moved into
Christmas mode, and it’s no different at our house.

 As I prepare our home to welcome the holidays, there is no doubt
I will be resorting to handmade as having to purchase
new items every year to change your decor can be very pricey.
 
 One of the easiest ways to change your decor without having
to spend too much is displaying beautifully wrapped presents under
 your tree, or setting them in various places as part of vignettes.

This is a photo of our white Christmas tree from last year.
 
 There are no real limitations to what you can do in terms of colours or theme
with gift wrap.  If you have been following my blog, you likely know
that I love working with paper and making paper flowers is a favourite of mine. 

As I prepare for Christmas, I made this pretty and easy paper flower and
put together a little  tutorial in case you wanted to make one of your own. 

 Here is what you will need:
Thick cardstock paper 
Templates
Scissors 
Glue
Hot Glue
Gold glitter (optional)
 
1. Click on template below (right click, save to computer and print)
2. Cut out flowers and boxwood out of thick cardstock paper 
3. Add glitter to boxwood

5. Hot glue the centre of the flowers from largest to smallest
6. Add glitter to centre of flower if desired
7. Hot glue flower and boxwood onto gift

Such a pretty and easy way to dress
up a simple present, don’t you think?
 
I also made some cute paper pine cones…
 
I’m working on a template for you and hope to have it ready for you tomorrow.

    I love these but I’m confused. If you use the decorative paper, why do you need the heavy card stock? I know the directions say to cut the shapes out of the heavy card stock, but the pics show the decorative paper. Can you clarify for this confused lady??

    I cut the flower and leaf pattern out of Christmas fabric; stiffened the fabric and glued it all together! It turned out fantastic! Thank you for posting this pattern.

    There are lots of DIY ideas which you could use
    on those colorless cabinets in your kitchen to bring
    back that sparkle. Four Dinner Plates one of each pattern: Leaves, Letters, Links and Circuit.
    Many units are designed with that in mind,
    but they can still be used free-standing.
