Paper Flower Bouquet

My 13-year-old daughter, Abby, has volunteered to contribute a monthly column to our family blog, which we’ll call “Abby’s Craft Corner.” This month she’s teaching us to make these sweet little paper flower bouquets. Last month, it was macrame rainbow keychains.

She made one of these bouquets for me for Valentine’s Day. Aren’t they cute? Abby has loved making crafts for as long as we can remember. I hope you’ll enjoy trying a few of her favorites.

And now, heeeeeerrrre’s Abby!

How to Make a Paper Flower Bouquet

Do you want to give a friend or family member flowers but don’t have a lot of money to spend on them? Well, here’s something cheap and easy to make. It’s a paper flower bouquet!

This cute bouquet makes a great gift. Follow these step-by-step instructions to make one of your own.

Supplies You’ll Need

  • ruler
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue sticks
  • yellow copy paper
  • green and brown card stock
  • empty toilet paper roll
  • Kleenex

Instructions for Making Paper Flower Bouquet

Step 1 – Cut

First, start by cutting a 5¼-inch long piece of brown card stock that’s ¼-inch thick and another 8-inch long piece of yellow copy paper that’s ½-inch thick.

Fringe the yellow strips of paper by cutting slices ⅛-inch apart all along the longest edge. I used my mom’s herb shears (with permission) to make this job faster. This yellow fringed paper will form the petals.

Cut several tiny leaf-shaped pieces of green card stock. Then cut your empty toilet paper tube in half lengthwise.

Step 2 – Roll

Roll the long brown strip of paper into a tight circular coil. Secure with glue. Roll the yellow strip of paper around the brown circle to made a flower, secure with glue and fluff the pedals. Do this for all the brown and yellow paper pieces to form small sunflowers.

Step 3 – Glue

Hot glue the sides of the empty toilet paper tube together so that the cardboard forms a cone shape. Trim if needed.

Next lightly crumple up the Kleenex and glue in the cardboard cone. Hot glue the flowers and tiny leaves on to the Kleenex until it is completely covered.

With that, you’re finished and ready to give your paper flower bouquet to someone special!
