- Craft wire
- Floral tape
My Lily Paper Flower is just an experiment. I just had an idea of twirling the petals and arrange it together to make a beautiful flower. All materials I used are can be found easily. Using an old craft paper, I made a flower that is perfect for any occasion like weddings, debuts and even make it as a home decoration.
1. First, you have to cut petals from your papers. Make rectangles measuring 1 inch by 2.5 inches. Cut the corner of one side into curve. You can also download and use the template I made to make the cutting easier. Download it here.
2. Cut a piece of craft wire with a length of 2 inches. Put some glue and stick the craft wire at one side of the petal.
3. Start rolling the petal from one side until the craft wire is attached to the petal.
4. Cover the junction of the petal and the stem with a craft tape.
5. Make as many as you can. The more the petals you make, the bigger the flower you can create.
6. Arrange the petals. Put them together starting from the center until you come up with the desired size of your flower.
7. Secure the petals by tying them with a craft wire. Put the flower in a stick or a piece of hard wire and cover it with a floral tape. You're done with your lily inspired paper flower. :)
Tips: You can cut a piece of green paper to make a leaf. Make it more creative and eco-friendly by using old papers and dye it. Old magazines are great too because of its glossy effect. Create more lily paper flower to make a classy bouquet as a table centerpiece, a wall decoration or a home accent. Try different colors too.
