- Paper (preferably thin or lightweight paper)
1 Make a paper square.
Start out with a square piece of paper, preferably thin or lightweight paper. You can use square origami paper or follow these easy steps for making a square from any rectangular piece of paper.
2 Fold diagonally in half.
Fold the square diagonally in half to come up with a triangle.
3 Fold in half.
Fold the resulting triangle in half to make a smaller triangle.
4 Fold in half again.
Fold the resulting triangle again in the middle to come up with an even smaller triangle.
5 Rotate and fold.
Rotate the triangle so that the longest side is positioned vertically and the solid corner (the corner corresponding to the paper's center) is at the bottom.
Bring the bottom short side towards the triangle's long side.
6 Cut above the straight edge.
Cut above the horizontal straight edge.
7 Draw an arc and cut.
Draw an arc starting from the top corner of the triangle's vertical side and ending about ½-inch from the bottom of the opposite side. This arc defines the shape of the flower petals. Cut along the arc.
8 Unfold the paper.
Carefully unfold the paper to reveal an eight-petaled flower.
Cut out a circle from paper, felt, craft foam, or fabric. Glue this at the center of the flower.
9 Make more flowers.
We also have craft instructions for making other fold-and-cut paper flowers:
- 5-Petal Folding Flowers
- 6-Petal Folding Flowers
- 6-Petal Folding Flowers with Printable Templates
Go for variety.
Create a variety of flowers by using different colors, patterns and textures of paper. Also try varying the size and steepness of the arc in Step 7 to come up with interesting flower shapes.
Make creative petal shapes.
The arc drawn in Step 7 is actually just a basic half-petal shape. You do not need to stick to an arc. Try making slight variations especially with the tip or upper portion of the petal.
Layer two or more flowers.
Glue together two or more flowers to come up with sunflowers, daisies, and other many-petaled flowers.
Create a layer of leaves.
Create a set of leaves by cutting green paper into a slightly larger 8-petaled flower. Glue this under one or more layers of 8-petaled flowers.
Use the flowers for craft projects.
Use the flowers to decorate greeting cards, scrapbooks, or your current craft project. Check out these flower craft ideas:

Make your very own paper flowers with the leftover paper you’ve got around! A cute little craft for kids, teens, and adults!
If you are someone who loves to spend hours working on beautiful crafts and art, then I bet you know that you can never have too many paper flowers at hand. There’s always some use to get out of paper flowers in crafts
If you’re looking to brighten up your craft session and creations, then you’ve got a ton of creative ways to do so. One of them being paper flowers! Think about it.
You’ve got a ton of craft projects that, with a couple of these gorgeous papers, can go from good to great. You can add them to photo frames, to birthday cards, or even just use them as a stand-alone project for your craft session.
Supplies You’ll Need for Flowers
Before you go planning this next craft session with the kids, take a look at the supplies you’ll need to buy:
- 4x paper squares (4’’x 4’’)
- Glitter glue
Once you’ve picked out your paper and assembled all the supplies you’ll be needing for this DIY, you can get started right away!
For this DIY project, consider working on a flat surface to help you fold and crease the paper effectively. Bring one end of the paper over to the other side, folding it diagonally over.
Make sure that the ends overlap each other, as shown below.
You will have a triangular piece of paper like this.
Grab one of the longer ends and fold the paper once more. You’ll find yourself with another triangle, albeit smaller.
Grab your marker or pen and draw an arc around one corner of the triangle. This will be your flower’s petal and should look something like the image below.
Grab a pair of scissors and carefully cut the paper across the arc.
Unfold the paper, and you’ll have the first layer of your paper flower.
Grab your scissors one again and cut out one single arc of your first layer. This will help you get that curved fold for your flower.
Once you decide how many layers you want your flower to have, you will need to cut out more and more of the petals to get the desired effect.
For example, you will need to cut out one single petal for the first or outer layer. For the second layer, you should cut two petals, three petals for the third, and so on.
This particular pattern calls for seven layers, as seen below.
Next, pick up the biggest layer of your paper flower. Grab your glue and apply some over the first arc petal, as shown below.
Bring the other end of the paper and stick it over the top of the edge you just applied glue over.
Your first layer should look something like this image, with a pointed end and curved walls.
Continue this step for all the layers of petals until you get to the last one. Roll the single petal into a cone-like center for the flower and stick it in place.
It’s time to curl the edges of your flower petals. It’s a pretty straightforward step, and all you need is a pen or marker.
Wrap the ends of the petal around the pen and carefully roll the paper to bend it into a furled curve, as seen below.
Work your way around till you’ve done the same for all the petals as well as all the layers of your paper flower.
Now it’s time to stick all the layers in place. Just dab some glue to the inside of the pointy tip of every layer and stick the outside of the next layer in.
Hold it in place to allow the layers to set and proceed to do this for all the layers of the flower.
The final layer or two of the petals will be harder to stick. So when you get to that layer, line the edges rather than the tips with glue and hold it down to the previous layer until it sticks to it.
There you go, your DIY paper flower is ready. You can make and store a ton of these flowers to use for later. But wait, there’s one final touch left.
It’s time to decorate your paper flower! You can line the edges with glitter glue or even spray a fine shimmer over it to the same effect!
Now your paper flowers are ready!
Where Can You Use These Paper Flowers?
Do you have a craft project that needs sprucing up? A picture frame, perhaps that looks a little too plain, or a birthday card you want to jazz up?
Your paper flowers could make an amazing addition to those craft projects! You can even make a paper flower montage or fill up a box frame with them and mount it on your wall as wall decor!
You can mix these paper flowers with these tissue paper pom poms and really get creative!

Video Tutorial for Paper Flowers
Grab some paper and make these beautiful DIY flowers. A perfect paper craft for the whole family to make and use for decorating!
- Gather all your supplies and lay them out on a flat surface.
- Fold a square sheet of paper diagonally into a triangle and press to crease it.
- Fold the paper again into a smaller triangle.
- Next, grab your marker and draw an arc—this will be the shape of your petal for the first layer. Cut out the petal and unfold the paper.
- Next, cut out one single petal in this layer and set it aside.
- Note: As you work your way up every layer, you will need to cut more and more of the paper to help taper your paper flower. For example, for the second layer, you will need to cut out two petals, three petals for the third layer, and so on.
- For the tip of the flower, simply curl one single petal into a cone-like center.
- Stick all the ends of every layer together, making sure they overlap and that they have pointed ends that curve the petals inward.
- Once you’ve stuck the individual components, it’s time to stick them all together and create your flower.
- Just layer the insides of the first layer and stick the next layer over it, holding in place till it sets.
- Once your flower has dried completely, you can curl the ends using a pen.
- The final step is to decorate it with glitter glue, and your paper flowers are good to go!

What kind of paper is the best? Different paper for different flowers?

We used just regular colored paper. A little thicker but flexible enough to make these flowers. As long as it's not cardboard, it should work ;)

About This Article
To make a paper flower, fold a piece of origami paper in half from left to right and from bottom to top, and then on both diagonals, so you end up with folds in the shapes of a cross and an “x.” Tuck the sides in and collapse them to form a triangular base. Now fold the outside flaps to line up with the center crease, then fold the outside corners of the outer flaps inward. Join the opposite side flaps together and then gently blow air into your tulip. Finish it by peeling back the “petals,” or extra layers of paper. For tips on how to make your tulip petals more dramatic or more natural-looking, read on! Did this summary help you? Yes No

How to make paper flowers step by step instructions with pictures
Take your square piece of paper and prepare to concertina fold it into 8 equal folds. The easiest way to get the folds neatly spaces out, is to keep folding your paper in half and then unfolding it so you have some guide creases (see the two top images).
Then unfold and recrease, alternating your fold until you have a neat concertina.
Cut the paper into 4 equal parts (or if you want a bigger flower, cut in half and repeat with a second piece of paper).
Glue the four pieces of paper together – end to end.
Then the end back to the first piece of paper so you have a concertina ring like in the top right photo.
Gather the top of the ring together (bottom left).
And push down (bottom right).
Sometimes it will pop back up again, but usually its stays in place…
Cut out a paper circle and glue the circle and button in place.
Take a craft stick or coffee stirrer, paint green and secure to the back of your flower with glue or tape!

2. Take one of the sheets of 6” paper and lay it on your table in diamond rotation. (We are using white paper here to demonstrate.)
3. Next, fold across from corner to corner to create a triangle.
4. Take one of the bottom corners and fold up towards the top point of the triangle.
5. Repeat this on the opposite side to create a diamond shape.
6. Now, pick up one of the newly folded sides, open it out and and flatten it down as shown.
7. Repeat this step on the opposite side.
8. Next, fold over the top portion of the new side to keep it in line with the top fold of your paper piece as shown.
9. Pick up the fold from step eight, fold it back on itself and tuck in behind to create an open pyramid shape as shown.
10. Repeat the last two steps on the opposite side.
11. Then, fold the outer edges in as shown.
12. Add a strong adhesive to one of the sides.
13. Now, fold your shape together to secure in place with the glue. This is your first petal!
14. Repeat this process with the other four pieces of 6″ x 6″ paper.
15. Use a hot glue gun to attach a piece of floristry wire to the centre of one of the petals.
16. Attach all five petals together with a hot glue gun to create a flower shape.
17. Turn your flower shape upside down and use a hot glue gun to secure the floristry wire in place.
18. Finally, add a small amount of glue to the centre of your flower shape. Attach a brad to the glue as a central decoration.
How to make a vase for your paper flowers
- First, cut a piece of card to 3.5″ x 8.25″.
- From the bottom right corner draw a 3″ square.
- Then, across the top edge from the right-hand side make a mark 1″ from the right.
- Next, draw a line from that mark to the top right of the square.
- Then across the top edge from the right-hand side make a mark 2 inch from the right.
- Next, draw a line from that mark to the top left of the square.
- From the line you have just drawn add a ½” gluing tab to the side.
8. Follow the lines to cut out the panel.
9. Then, repeat the process to draw and cut out another three panels.
10. Score and burnish the gluing flaps and the base panels
11. Next, add adhesive to the glue flaps and attach the four panels together.
12. Now, attach the final two sides together to create the main body of the vase
13. Fold in the four base panels and stick in place so they are secure.
12. Next, cut out four pieces of patterned paper so they measure 1/4″ smaller than the four panels of the vase.
13. Use adhesive to attach the patterned paper to each panel of the vase to decorate.
14. Now, choose a message from the Simply Said Vellum Pad. Use scissors to cut to size.
15. Next, add a shimmering border to your vellum sentiment using gilding flakes.

How to Make Tissue Paper Flowers
This craft project is easy and kid-friendly with beautiful results
Tissue paper flowers are an easy-to-make craft that's perfect for a variety of holidays and occasions. Kids of all ages can participate in this craft with stunning results . School-age kids will particularly love this craft because it allows them to create decor that can be used and admired.
The materials for tissue paper flowers are easy to find, and kids can use their growing dexterity to help trim and pull out the tissues to make a whole bouquet of these beautiful flowers.
Gather Your Materials
To make a single stemmed flower you will need:
- 1 green chenille stem/pipe cleaner
- 1 sheet of green cardstock paper or construction paper
- 3 sheets (12-by-6-inch sheets or larger) of colored tissue paper
If you don't have some of these materials, there are plenty of alternatives that may be lying around your house. For example, straws or chopsticks work well for the stems, and any thin paper that can be crumpled without tearing will work in place of the tissue paper.
You could even color a piece of white paper with markers or crayons and create a one-of-a-kind multicolored flower.
Additional materials can be used to decorate your flowers, such as washi tape, ribbon, small pom poms, and sequins.
Prepare the Tissue Paper
Before making your flowers, you will need to prepare the tissue paper by cutting all of the sheets to the same size. Then you'll be able to stack and fold them into petals to make a flower shape. Be sure to follow the measurements listed below.
If you cut the paper into squares instead of rectangles, for instance, the flower may end up looking different than you had planned!
- Take the tissue paper out of its package, stack three sheets on top of one another, line them up, and cut into 12-by-6-inch sheets. (For larger flowers, use bigger sheets and cut to your desired size).
- Once cut to size, be sure your sheets of tissue paper are stacked and lined up once again before you begin folding your tissue paper.
- Start with the shorter side (in this case, the 6-inch side) and make a 1-inch fold to start off an accordion fold.
If you are making several of these flowers, lay multiple tissue paper sheets on top of one another at the same time before cutting to size (at least six to 12 sheets is ideal).
Make Accordion Folds
Turn your tissue paper stack so that the short end is in front of you on the table, portrait-style.
- Once you have made a 1-inch fold in your stacked tissue paper edge, turn your tissue paper stack over for the next fold, then turn it back for the fold after that.
- Keep folding and turning over the paper until you have an accordion-style narrow strip of tissue paper.
Round the Edges With Scissors
In this step, you will ensure that the flower has the desired shape by trimming the ends to look like petals.
- Take your scissors and trim the ends of the stacked tissue paper strip so that you have a rounded edge. This will help your tissue paper petals have a rounded appearance, like the petals of a real peony, when you unfold the flower later.
- Be sure to trim both ends of your folded tissue paper stack.
Add the Stem
- To ensure the stem is centered, fold the tissue strip in half and place the green pipe cleaner or chenille stem at the fold.
- Loop the "stem" around the middle of the folded tissue paper strip.
- Twist the pipe cleaner onto itself to hold the tissue paper strip in place.
If you are using more than one color of tissue paper, you can create variations in the finished flower by changing the position of the pipe cleaner.
Gently Peel Open the Layers
Be careful with this step as you pull the layers apart. Tissue paper is fragile and can rip if it's not pulled apart gently.
- Starting on one side, begin opening up the tissue paper folds you made.
- Be sure to pull apart the folds evenly from both ends.
If your paper does tear a bit when you pull the layers apart, don't worry. Those rips will most likely not even show, and you may be able to tuck them into the other petals to hide them in the next step.
Separate the Tissue Paper Sheets
- Gently separate the tissue paper sheets to unfold the petals of your flower. It will quickly begin to look like a beautiful blossom.
Very young children may have a hard time with this part, so you may want to do this step and then have your child fluff the petals once you are done. But even if it doesn't look perfect, it will still be pretty, and your child will love showing off their flower.
Cut and Add Green Leaves
This step is optional, although having green leaves lends the blossoms even more of a realistic look.
- Make a 2-inch fold in a piece of green cardstock or construction paper.
- Draw leaves on the folded edge. If you used 12-by-6-inch tissue paper for the flower, the leaves should be at least 4 inches long and about an inch at their widest point.
- Cut out the leaves.
- Glue one or two leaves to the stem of each blossom, placing them wherever you and your child decide they look best.
Arrange Your Paper Flowers
Once you have made a few tissue paper flowers, you can arrange them in a vase or give them as gifts for Valentine's Day , Easter, or any other special (or "just because") occasion.
Children may also enjoy attaching the flowers to a headband, decorating their bedroom curtains or doorframe with them, or making a wreath with a circle of flowers.
