How to Make Giant Paper Amaryllis

This Amaryllis flower petal is unique from my traditional wider petals.

These DIY paper amaryllis flowers can be used in decorations for any holiday season.

– Cardstock – Pan Pastels  – Ink sponges – Wood dowel – Glue gun – Scissors – Cutting machine


For each flower, you will cut out eight petals in every size – one of each side of the 8-sided base, and then 4-6 center petals.


Cut about a 1.5 to 2-inch slit at the bottom. Curl each top edge backward with your wood dowel or pencil. Finally, overlap and glue the slit at the base.

Once you have prepared all your petals, begin adding them around the octagon base, largest to smallest. I’m using my 8-sided Petal Perfect octagon base.

For these paper amaryllis flowers, I will be using the what comes with my paper amaryllis template. You would want to create some dimension.
