Many made similar products in kindergarten and elementary school mothers on the eighth of March (and sometimes even fathers on February 23). For this reason, it may seem that this activity is more suitable for a child than an adult, a wealthy person.

But in fact, the creation of flowers from paper and Wallpaper is an art, the main advantage of which is the budget, ease of development of technology and create masterpieces that will not wither the next day. In addition, you do not need to tear fresh flowers.

Is it hard to make paper flowers?

Many can stop the memories of how they made paper flowers for a long time in childhood. Not everyone stayed positive memories on such subjects as “Fine arts”, “Crafts”, “Works” or “Work”.

Many did not manage to make smooth, beautiful flowers, and therefore as adults, people are sure that they are not able to do anything beautiful with their own hands. But it’s not. As a child, you only mastered the basic movements, and the teachers had a goal to develop fine motor skills.

After all, even doing simple origami, you trained your fingers. In the future, it helped children learn to write. Now you have developed fingers, so you wash to create masterpieces. To do this, you only need to carefully repeat the master class and follow all the instructions.

Tools and materials required for creation

Asking the question “How to make paper flowers?”, the second thing that comes to mind “What tools are needed for this?”. Let’s decide on the materials.

If you want to practice and just try your hand, suitable ordinary office paper (for example – “snow maiden”), it is not superfluous to buy a sheet of drawing paper or half-Batman. Their price does not exceed 20 rubles per sheet (one will be enough). To create colored leaves are well suited to the most common trim from Wallpaper. Surely every person left an extra couple of rolls after repair. Now is the time to use them.

Deciding to make complex products, be sure to buy colored, velvet and corrugated paper. Not be amiss and colorful cardboard.


With tools, everything is much easier than with the material. All you need is something to cut and fasten the paper. Surely these tools are in everyone’s home or office. If anything, they can be borrowed from the child.
You’ll need scissors, an awl, a box cutter. What would the sheets easier to cut, is not excessive and pencil with eraser. To fasten the details of future colors, you need glue (PVA, moment, glue-pencil, etc.), tape (normal, paper, double-sided, etc.), paper clips and buttons.

Making paper flowers

There is a great variety, both in nature and in artificial, paper flowers. To start, select a simple option (for example – “Flower wish”).

This will help you remember how to work with the material. In the manufacture of the bouquet you can use ready-made schemes and templates. You can print them out on the printer or simply attach a piece of paper to the monitor and circle it with a pencil.

Flower with a wish

Before you start, decide on the shape of the flower. Its leaves can be rounded, pointed, short and long.

  • Invented form draw on cardboard and carefully cut with scissors. This is done so that it would be possible to create a set of identical elements;
  • Attach the form to colored paper or Wallpaper and circle with a pencil. Blanks can be made from the same color or from colorful, multi-colored sheets;
  • Cut out the drawn elements. All of them must be absolutely identical.
  • On each leaf of your flower write a wish.
  • Lubricate the center of each part and glue them together. The leaves can be slightly bend with your fingers, to bring them volume and fluffiness.

  • Having finished the work, we can only come up with its application. You can buy a magnetic tape and glue it to the back of the flower. Get a nice fridge magnet.

Examples of wishes:

  • Joy of life!
  • True love!
  • Good mood!
  • What would the possibilities coincide with desires!
  • Good luck in all your endeavors!
  • Be happy!
  • Peace in your home!
  • Warmth and well-being!
  • Always smiling!
  • Good health!
  • Et al.

You could write wishes on each piece of paper to draw emoticons.

Another option is to attach to the back of the thread (use hot glue). This will allow you to hang the product on the Christmas tree, Cabinet handle, etc.

Perhaps the most difficult option is to make a few of these colors (not an even number, it is best 3 or 5). Take A3 cardboard, and fold it in half. You should have a book. On the front side, glue the three-dimensional flowers with wishes, and inside write a wish. Get a good card with their hands, suitable as an addition to the main gift.

Paper Rose DIY

At the base of the rose, fix the greens;

Paper chrysanthemum

By itself, the chrysanthemum does not have a significant size. Therefore, it will take a lot of effort to create it. You have a delicate job ahead of you.

Large paper flowers

The scheme is a bit similar to the “Flower with wishes”, but has a number of differences. Its complexity lies in the fact that it will not be enough just to cut out all the details and glue them together. You need to give them the right shape, and this requires a good eye and artistic flair.

In this technique, you can do most of the colors (poppies, roses, dahlias, etc.) you can get any Bud, you only need to choose a suitable silhouette. The difference from the first flower is that there is no universal silhouette. So …

  • You will need several elements (from 5 to 12) of exactly the same shape, but different in size. They can be cut using your own eye and artistic skills. But you can cheat. Print the finished blanks on colored paper. This will greatly facilitate your task.
  • In this work, not only the color of the petal is important, but also its relief. Before working wet harvesting water from pontificator (not much) or take them on a wet towel.
  • Fold the leaves to give them the appearance of a living plant. The main thing is not to overdo it, otherwise it will be problematic to straighten the work.
  • The last step is bonding. The process is similar to a flower with wishes.
  • Adjust the leaves to dry. Glued on the flower can be seen all inaccuracies.

Cut a new detail and paste into the center of the flower. The rear portion of the garnish with parsley. The Bud itself can be planted on a stem of wire.
