How to Make Paper Flowers

Yesterday I posted my newly decorated Spring niche, and my trial and error homemade chalkboard. I really wanted to share the rest of my homemade Spring decorations with you, yesterday as well, but I thought it might be better overwhelm you incredibly long post (and fabulous ideas!).

The theme of my Springtime niche is Butterflies and Blooms. I love them both dearly, and I have to admit that I keep showing up in front of this decorated area of my home, standing there smiling ☺.

I found this picture frame a couple years ago and had to have it; for what I didn't know, but I'm so glad that I bought it! I trimmed it out with the Flower Trim from the Stampin' Up! Spring Mini catalog, and added a simple butterfly image; Swallowtail background stamp, in Sahara Sand ink, on Whisper White card stock. I covered the books with miscellaneous Designer Series Paper, and set them under the frame for height.

That brings me to the paper flowers! I have been meaning to make flowers ever since I saw a beautiful paper flower arrangement my downline, Salpi, made. Then I saw a blog post, by Stampin' Up!, which created a similar flower to my Calypso Coral flower, and I thought, now is the time!!

I put my flowers in a recycled spice jar from Target. Thank you Archer Farms!
I made a video tutorial to show you how to make paper flowers. You can add stems, or add them to packages, tags, cards, or even cupcakes! Have fun!
