DIY Paper Flowers: Anemone
With only a few supplies this craft is easy to put together and make.
DIY Paper Flowers Anemone Supplies:
- Coloured craft paper – including black and white
- Craft glue
DIY Paper Flowers Anemone Process:
Print and cut out the petal pattern from the template. The template is set for A4 size paper. Trace the petal pattern on the selected craft paper and cut out 10 petals from it.
There are 3 more patterns on the template. Trace and cut out the round pattern with zigzag edge from white craft paper. Trace and cut out the 2 other patterns from a black craft paper. Cut small and even fringes on the long black strip.
Take a petal and cut a small slit (1 cm) from its bottom end.
Bring both sides of the slit by overlapping them, and apply glue to secure the joint.
Do the same for the rest of the petals. Crumble the round black craft paper into a ball shape. Cut out a round pattern around the same size of the black round pattern. This piece will be the base.
Take the petals one by one and glue them on the base. Start to glue the petals from the outer edge of the base.
Glue 5 petals for the first outer layer.
For the second inner layer glue the rest of the 5 petals. Make sure that the second layer partially overlaps the first layer, not entirely.
Done glueing the petals? Now take the white round pattern and glue it on the middle of the second petal layer.
Take the black fringed pattern and roll it entirely; apply a small amount of glue at the end of the roll t secure it. Glue the rolled fringed pattern on the centre of the white pattern. Spread the fringes carefully and then glue the black crumbled ball pattern on the centre.
Use green craft papers to create the leaves.
The result is a finished product you will love and I’m sure you will start creating lots of other DIY paper flowers. Wouldn’t these be perfect on a wreath, as a table setting or on top of a gift? so beautiful and unique.
