Easy to Make Folded Paper Flowers

Folded Paper Flowers

This idea came from this pin  on  my paper craft Pinterest board.  This would be a really cute party decoration for a birthday or baby shower.  You could use any color paper you wanted to match your theme.  I didn't have a party, I just made this for fun.  It's so happy and cheerful!

glue stick
wooden skewers
glue gun
floral foam
florist moss or grass (green raffia would work too)
a container

1.  Cut strips of paper and accordion fold them.  I cut 1 inch, 2 inch, and 3 inch wide strips.  You'll need different sizes for the different parts of the flower.  The 3 inch wide strips will make a wide circle for the flower.  The 1 inch wide strips will make a small circle for the center of the flower. 


2.  Use a glue stick to glue two strips of folder paper together.  Glue both ends to make a folded circle. 


3.  Push the circles down so they lay flat and glue the center together with a glue gun.  This can be a bit tricky because the folded paper wants to pop up.  Don't worry about making the back look nice and go ahead and use a big blob of glue to make it hold together.


4.  Glue one large and one small folded paper disk together.  Glue a button in the center.

5.  Glue a wooden skewer on the back.

6.  I used the same pattern for the leaves that I used for the felt flowers I made recently.  (Go here for the leaf pattern)  Cut out the leaves.  Poke a hole in the center of the leaf and poke the wooden skewer through.  Continue making several flowers for your arrangement.

7.  Place florist foam in a container.  Poke the flowers into the foam.  Cover the foam with florist moss, grass or raffia.  In no time at all you'll have a happy and cheerful flower arrangement!
