Why yes! I am throwing another Giant Paper Flower Tutorial your way! Why? Because they are awesome! Since there are an infinite amount of shapes there really is countless ways to create new stylish paper flowers.
You know I live and breathe paper flowers. I was actually wondering the other day how many large paper flowers I have designed since I started 8 years ago. I kinda shocked myself when I counted 63!
Charlotte Style Paper Flower Template
The Charlotte design is a favorite because it is so big, and because of the scalloped petal edges it creates a full yet soft ruffle affect. This style is great if you are decorating your baby girl’s nursery or putting together a baby shower.
The center of this flower can be made 1 of 3 ways. First, using the pompom center, which is easy and no template is required to make it. Second, fill the whole center in with small petals curled different directions as I teach in the video below. Or lastly, using a rosette center, which is always fun.
Let’s go over the supplies you will need for this Giant Paper Flower Tutorial.
– 65 pound cardstock in choice color (Paper and More)
– Cutting Machine (optional: click here to see the one I recommend)
– Glue gun (Find it here)
– Wood dowel for rolling
Cut out all your petals. This tutorial is for a large Charlotte flower, which measures about 13-14 inches once made.
1st layer- 7 petals
2nd layer – 6 petals
3rd layer – 6 petals
4th layer – 6 petals
Note: If you are making an extra large flower start with 7-8 extra petals.
Cut about 1 1/2 inch slits at the bottom and slightly overlap.
Curl your largest petals backwards. For your remaining petal sizes curl one side inwards and one backwards.
At a 45 degree angle bring 2 petals together and overlap slightly with glue.
Keep going until the petals meet together naturally.
