This paper flowers blossom craft is super fun to make too. I love paper flowers and these ones are one of my favorites.

Paper flowers can bring color and life to any room. They don’t wilt or fade like real flowers would over time, so they’re perfect for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and why not? for our own home decor!

This blog post shows you how to make beautiful blossom paper flowers. All you need is some basic crafting supplies like cardstock and tacky glue or hot glue!

They can be made quickly and easily customized. I’ll show you how to make them in different colors and it can be made in different sizes too. Once you get the hang of it, you can make a whole bunch of flowers in less than an hour!

What type of paper do I need to make these cute blossom paper flowers

For this specific diy paper flower, I used these rolled paper flowers is 65 lb scrapbook paper but you can use pretty much any kind of paper, plain cardstock, colorful paper that is sturdy enough that it won’t rip.

What kind of Glue should I use for these Paper Flowers

The final step when assembling your paper flowers, you’ll need glue to secure them. When it comes to the best glue for paper flowers, you have two options:

  • Hot glue gun. Hot glue is a great option since it sets up so quickly.
  • Quick-drying craft glue ia another good option. I tend to use UHU glue for most paper crafting projects but I’ve heard great things about tacky glue too. 

Quilling Tool and Alternatives

If you’re new to paper crafting, or just haven’t heard of a quilling tool, well, a quilling tool is small hand tools that you can use to make paper coils quickly and easily.

Quilling tools have a metal tip with a small slot. To use the tool, insert the end of a paper strip into the slot, and turn the tool to roll up the paper. The slot holds the paper in place while you twist the tool.

If you don’t have a quilling tool available, you can substitute an embroidery needle cutting the top of where in insert the thread.

Prep work

Found these branches in front of the house about to be picked up by the trash truck and I know I would come up with something for them LOL.

I was so lucky to find Bird Cards’s site. She shares all kinds of cut files for free and these flowers I used belongs to her, if you want to snag the free paper flower templates you can!.

I prepared the design on my silhouette studio. Then played with them like a puzzle so I could fit as many as possible in one12″x12″ sheet of cardstock.

I cut a bunch of these flowers. You can cut them in slightly different sizes and shades.

I cut one whole mat of one paper and a whole other with another paper. You can make more or less depending on how many branches or how big they might be.

Creating the Paper Flowers

Then using a quilling tool {you can also use a big needle cutting the top of where in insert the thread or just with hands} I started rolling the flower strip from the external end.

At some point, I remove the tool and finished with my hands.  I made them all first and then let it unroll a bit so they get a more natural look.

Then at the end, you will see a small circle that is made to secure the bottom of the flower. You glue it to the flower and keep every loop in place.

Tadaaaa… a cute flower is ready!

As you can see it creates in a simple way, layers of petals that look like cute little blossoms.

Assembling the blossom branches bouquet

I started to glue the flowers all over the branches mostly on the branch collars switching colors. That way the paper flowers blossom look almost real at a distance.

Applying hot glue on the pape flower to the branch

Keep gluing a few paper flowers in different spots of the branches. Do this so it looks like a blooming branch.

And that’s it!

My brother had made a cute stained vase for my mom too so we used it for the branches and my mom Loved it… So much that she put it in her office desk =D

  3. Beautiful! Love the flowers, love the branches and love the whole project! Thanks for sharing with us!

  4. That’s beautiful! Very elegant! These flowers must have required lots of patience… But worth the effort as it’s a beautiful addition to a room. I’ never made paper flowers but may try these. I’ll keep the idea in a corner of my mind. Thank you!

    1. Thanks so much France, It looks harder than it is. It does take it’s time but it’s kind of fun LOL. I’m glad you like it! Thanks so much for your sweet visit!

  5. Cami,
    Your paper flowers are beautiful! Kinda reminds me of the dogwood blooms in the spring. In addition to creating an arrangement, I can see taking your design and adding the flowers to a gift box or on a hair clip for our daughters. Terrific idea!

  6. Cami, these flowers are so lovely! I too love visiting Bird’s Cards site, she is so super talented and generous! I really like the way you placed your flowers…so realistic! Now I’ll have to keep an eye out for the right branches while I walk my dog!

    1. Yes, Bird’s Cards is amazing. She is talented indeed!… You will love how the branches look in the house!!!
      XOXO Thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. Cam, am in love!!. It’s so amazing. Almost real like. Once you print it out, you need to cut out each pattern properly right?.. So many twists and turns. It’s time consuming right?. Is that the Paint program in the 4th pic in this post?.. I love projects like these. Extremely beautiful ♡

    1. Hi Naznin, Thanks so much for your sweet comment. Actually no, I have a machine called Silhouette Cameo that cuts it for me. I juts place the paper or cardstock in the cutting mat and it does all the job! AMAzing right? I’m glad you like this project!!! you should take a look at the other blogger’s Silhouette projects, they are amazing!

      1. Hey Cam, thanks for making it clear. I read about the Silhouette Cameo in your binder post, on which I had commented yesterday but I didn’t quite understand. But now I googled it and watched how it works on Youtube and man I am impressed. It’s super duper simple and so freaking amazing!!. I love making cards for my family/friends. It’s pretty perfect for me. It’s totally neat!.

    1. Thanks Sharon, Quilling tool is not an expensive tool, as far as I know. But you can definitely make you own. I did it before having this one. What I did was using a sharpie marker body case and inserted the needle in the back part and used some super bonder ad toilet paper inside the case to keep the needle in place. Since rolling the paper doesn’t take too much effort it worked. But then I preferred a proper one LOL.

      Glad you like the project!

  8. I love the look of these! They really do look real from far away. :) Plus, adding them to a real branch is just genius. I might have to borrow that idea!

    1. Hey Kristy, It would honoured me if you feel inspired to make this project. It looks so nice inside the house!!! Thanks so much for your sweet visit!
