DIY Paper Gardenia

DIY Paper Gardenia
It seems that every time I create a new paper flower template it becomes my new favorite. Well my dears, it has happened again. This paper gardenia is simply gorgeous and just in time for Mother’s Day. Even if you don’t have time to make a full bouquet, just one on top of a wrapped gift will add that “gift-on-top-of-gift” that I love to do when I do my own gift wrapping. These gardenias would also make a perfect Mother’s Day corsage to pin onto her (or your) top or tie at the wrist. The possibilities go on. For this flower I printed a simple line template onto one of my favorite paper types, a metallic, iridescent, frosty paper, that gives such a beautiful dimension when curled and sculpted.

This layout shows varied sizes of punch-outs to glue together for the flower. The pink petals range from large to smaller sizes. Each flower except for the tiny sizes, needs at least two layers and will sometimes have as many as five or six total layers, each glued atop the lower, until you are ready to choose what center you want-large or small, paper, glitter, craft sand, rhinestones, pom-poms. I use an inexpensive thick white glue for all but the topmost layer for the glue-glob, which will be 'sanded' to make a raised textured center.

Perpetually Engaged: paper flower shower Whenever I see photos of other bloggers homes they always have fresh flowers in a pretty vintage vase on their dining room table. I'm sure a majority buy themselves a bouquet just for the shot, but I always find myself saying "I wish I did that more often". The other day I was thinking of buying myself a weekly bouquet of fresh flowers and then I remembered how cheap I am.
