4. Place largest cut out first
5. Glue second cut out on top in the position shown on figure No. 5.
6. Glue the rest of the cut outs as shown on figure No.6 (placement is important).
7. Fold all petals upwards towards the middle except the bottom (largest) petals
8. With a curling iron (yes…I said curling iron) curl the petals in towards the centre (I don’t know if this is normally done by paper artists, but If they don’t, I recommend they do).
9. Curl some petals inwards and some outwards
10. Turn flower upside down and cut along dotted line towards the centre as shown.
11. Turn flower right side up and curl petals.
12. It should look like figure No 12.
16. Scrunch up a small piece of paper and glue to the centre of flower. As an alternative to this, I used a painted Styrofoam egg cut in half. The shape mimics the stamen of a Magnolia. If you wish, go here to see it.
17. I painted the stamen black so you can see it better.
18. Flower is now complete.

wow, i love them! it looks so fun! thanks for sharing the tutorial, i just might try it!! Have a great weekend!
Love it! they look so elegant!
I just made one – so fun! I don’t happen to have a curling iron (I know), so I just rolled the ends around a pencil. I’ve done it before for bulletin board displays for preschool when I am making 3D grass. Works like a charm!

Your magnolias are just so sweet and pretty! Love them and what a great idea to use your curling iron~ very creative! Thanks for sharing at FNF! 🙂
Well Lucy I’m a fan. Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers; do they grow up your way in Canada; they’ll be in full bloom in May here in Louisiana and I’m gonna take a bunch of pictures, but thanks to your tutorial I can have them year around and I took a look at your wreath and love the wall collage you arranged.
