Dahlia Paper Flower Template and Tutorial
Dahlias have graced the blog many times before but this Autumn Sunburst dahlia is by far my most favorite dahlia design. While it takes a little more time, it is certainly realistic! Check out the classic dahlia here and my Deliliah Dahlia as well – I’ve even turned this one into a giant dahlia bloom!
This dahlia paper flower template is not the only new bloom this season, many new small flower designs have come to the blog this year because my brand new ebook and template bundle, The Joy of Paper Flowers arrived this Fall!
I’m continuing to share my love for this lovely text weight metallic cardstock paper.
Below is a full list of my supplies and resources that I used to create these warm Autumn blooms.
