I do have “bought in” paper and ribbon flowers in my crafting stash, but there are not always ones to match a project I’m working on, so I like to make my own as well and then colour them in with the same medium I’ve used in my project. I also use bits of cardstock trimmed off when making a project to make matching flowers.
To make my paper flowers I use a lot of different techniques. Some are more fiddly than others, and therefore, because my hands don’t always work as they should and can be painful because of the M.E., I tend to make spares of different types when I am able to make them.
I started this with just one page with just one type of flowers, but I’ve already added to it so I’ve split my one page into a section of several pages, and I’ll probably be adding more as and when I make different flowers and remember to take photos as I’m making them.
These are the flowers I’ve made a pictorial guide for so far.
- Paper Roses From Hearts
- Paper Roses From Spirals
- No Tools Paper Flowers 01
- No Tools Paper Flowers 02
- Create Different Flowers From Mulberry Flowers
- Flowers From Circles
- Making Flatter Flowers From Waste – 1
- Flowers From Diamonds
Please do come back and have a look at these pages again in the future as I hope to continue adding pictorial guides to some of the different paper flower types I’ve made I’ve done.
- The photographs used in these pictorial guides were all taken by me and are copyright to me – so no taking copies for your own use in either paper or electronic format.
- The shapes that I’ve used to make my creations – be they digital/electronic cuts, die cuts I’ve cut myself, pieces punched with a paper punch, laser or die cut elements I’ve bought in, etc. – will all be copyrighted to the original designer/company of those designs. The same is true for any background paper designs I’ve used as well. Where I’ve used background papers, electronic/digital cutting files, dies, etc., I’ve tried to provide details, plus I’ve tried to put in links to where they are legally sold if I know of anywhere they are currently available from, so if you like them you can go and buy your own. If you want to make something similar to what I’ve made, and don’t already have the same items I’ve used, or similar shaped items, then please buy the stuff. Don’t try to use my photos to create your own digital cutting files. It isn’t nice and it isn’t legal.
