DIY Valentine’s Day Paper Flowers

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.I’m not a huge fan of brightly colored hearts hanging up everyone for Valentine’s Day, but I do love to show some spirit.

So this year I decided to make some pink and white paper flowers to decorate my mantel.

Supplies Italian crepe paper in white Construction paper in green and yellow Watercolors Paintbrush Pencil Hot glue gun Scissors

Let's make DIY Valentine’s Day Paper Flowers

Step 1

Begin by cutting a circle from the yellow construction paper and trim little slits all the way around. There should be a one inch diameter area in the center that doesn’t have any slits.

Step 2

Place your pointer finger in the center of the circle and then fold all of the outer pieces upward. This will be the center of the flower, representing the stamens.

Step 3

Next, cut a strip of crepe paper that is about 6 inches wide, and then fold it into fourths. Cut a round-ish petal sort of shape like I’ve shown above. The pencil marks were for the tutorial’s sake only.

Step 4

Now you’ll begin to hot glue petals to the stamens. Begin by stretching the petal out… this will make it much wider and more rounded, as shown in the photo above.

Step 5

At this point, the flower will have a somewhat conical shape. Stick one finger down into the center of the flower to secure it on your work surface, and use the other hand to push the bases of the petals down so the flower opens up.
