ABBI KIRSTEN COLLECTIONS
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 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.
The center of this flower can be made 1 of 3 ways. First, using the pompom center. Second, fill the whole center in with small petals curled different directions. Or lastly, using a rosette center, which is always fun.
Supplies/Tools: – 65 pound cardstock – Scissors – Cutting Machine – Glue gun – Wood dowel –
Cut out all your petals. This tutorial is for a large Charlotte flower, which measures about 13-14 inches once made.
Cut about 1 1/2 inch slits at the bottom and slightly overlap.
Curl your largest petals backwards.
At a 45 degree angle bring 2 petals together and overlap slightly with glue. Keep going until the petals meet together naturally.
