Step 1- How to Make Large Paper Flowers
Notes for machine users:
If you are using a cutting machine the cutting software tends to enlarge the petals from their original format that I save them. To help with that I created a petal layout guide video here, which maximizes paper use. Plus here are the petal measurements if you prefer to plug in exact numbers.
Petal measurements: Extra large 7.5 x 10.5 Large 5.5 x 7.7 Medium 3.9 x 5.3 Small 3.0 x 4.1 Extra Small 3 x 4
If you are using a machine skip down to step 3.
