Easy Large Garden DIY Paper Flower Materials

This project is not expensive to do, all you need is a few supplies – most of which you likely have around the house.

  • 4 Sheets multicolored cardstock – 1 sheet for the petals, 1 sheet for the leaves, 1 sheet for the flower back and top, 1 sheet for the center. If you use 12 x 12 paper you will be able to make a larger flower. For this project, you can use 8.5 x 11 if you wish.
  • Cutting Machine (I use a Cricut). You can also cut and score this project by hand if you do not have a machine available.
  • Glue for gluing all the flower parts together.
  • 4 Green Pipe Cleaners to be the stems.
  • Scissors – you will need these for curling the flower petals.
  • Dowel or other material for the stem.
  • SVG Template files – you can download these from my resource library.

Step 2 Change the inside portion of the leaves to score lines. And make sure the stem is attached to the leaf itself as it may get cut off (you can always glue it back on later. I decided to not use the cut stems, instead, I used short pipe cleaners to work as the stems. These were much sturdier.

Leaf Lines

Last Word on Creating an Easy Large Garden DIY Paper Flower
