Handmade Paper flowers

Step by Step Tutorial for Hand Made 
Recycled Paper Flowers

Here's how to make these gorgeous handmade paper flowers

Step 1

To make these gorgeous recycled paper flowers, firstly, you need to purchase one of our paper kit from our website  In your paper flower kit, you will see die cut pieces of paper like this:

 Step 2   To make the flower, you need to carefully roll the paper from the end until you reach the middle  like this:

Step 3

Once you have reached rolling to the middle part of the paper flower, you need to add the glue to the large middle part. Once you let go of the rolled flower, it will naturally unroll slightly, this is ok, as you want the flower petals to look a little looser.

 I find that lifting the rolled flower in one hand and squeezing a blob of glue under the rolled part works best. You then need to add another blob of glue to the rest of the middle part, and squeeze the flower together like this :

Step 4

Leave the glue to set for 20 minutes; then start to bend your petals. By moving and bending the petals, you create a more natural look for your petals.

Depending on which kit you have purchased, you can create fantastic button holes by glueing a pin to the back.

Our flower kits are available in brown kraft card, cream vintage fleck card (as show in our diagram’s) or plantable and growable seed card. They can be used to decorate your wedding favours or invitations, or as button holes for your guests.

Why not create a lasting memory of your special day, by planting your button hole? Once your button hole has been used, it can then be planted where it will produce a wide range of British Wildflowers.

Our gorgeous plantable seed paper is hand made with Contains British Wildflower Seeds. Seeds included are;- Birdsfoot Trefoil, Black Snapweed, Black Medick, Common Vetch, Meadow Buttercup, Musk Mallow, Ox-eye Daisy, Ribwort Plantain, Red Campion, Self Heal, White Campion, Yarrow, Browntop Bent, Red Fescue, Crested Dogstail, Meadow Fescue and Smooth Stalk Meadow Grass.
