Easy Make Lily of the Valley
The Perfect Personalized Wedding Invitations!
DIY paper flowers are an incredibly satisfying way to decorate your home! These can be used all year round without worrying about how long they are going to last. I know I love having fresh flowers but in reality they fade quickly so making your own bouquet to replace the fresh ones really keeps a smile on your face. Some paper flower tutorials are very complicated looking but very easy to
put together. This Lily of the Valley DIY paper flower template is truly simple and a lot of fun to make

Lily of the Valley Step-by-Step Guide
Step Two - Duplicated Flowers and Stamens
For this project, you will be making 10 flowers and stamens but only one leaf. The flowers have the jagged edges and the stamens are a long rectangle. Just select both the flower and the stamen and then duplicate them 9 times.
Also change the flower and stamens to the same color as you will want to make these from white crepe-paper
Step Three - Choosing Your Paper
Cricut gives you several options for crepe-paper and you will need to choose the one that best matches the crepe-paper you have on hand. I used a thin crepe-paper so I chose the one with the star shown in the diagram.
Step Four and Five - Making the Flowers
The first part of making these Lily of the Valley flowers is to start making the flower itself.
The process is easy. Just for a circle with the flower portion and glue the edges together. Do this for all 10 flowers.
Step Six - Making the Stamens
Cut a 6 to 8 inch length of floral wire. This will be used to make the stamen.
To make the stamens, you will need to fold the rectangle in half lengthwise and then in half again.
Add glue to the center of your folded stamen and place the floral wire into the center then fold the edges around the wire making sure you go in the same direction for each side. Keep twirling it around until it is glued in place.
Repeat this step for the remaining stamens.
Step Seven - Making the Leaf
To make the leaf, cut a piece of floral wire approximately 12 inches long and glue it to the center of one of the leaves.
Add glue around the edges of the leaf and down the center again. Carefully place the second leaf on top and align it as best as possible to make a nice leaf.
Stretch the leaf edges and curve the stem to make a nice bowl shape.
Step Eight/Nine - Assembling Your Lily of the Valley
In this step you will be placing the stamens into the center of the flower then pinching the bottom securely. Your stamen will just poke out the top of the flower.
You can add some glue to keep these in place and then add some floral tape around the bottom and extend it to the end of the wire.
Do this for all 10 flowers and stamens.
In this step you will be twisting all the flowers together to make a “tree” with branches.
Start with the first flower as the base and twist the next stem to it but slightly lower. Twist the stems together fairly tightly. Continue to add the flowers so that they form a tree structure with branches.
Finally, add your “tree” to the bottom of the leaf and add extra floral tape to bind everything together.
This project was amazing to do, it looks so wonderful when it is put together! You can make several of these and making an amazing bouquet! Add some of the daffodils and daisies to make a gorgeous table display!
