Love flowers but not blessed with a green thumb?
If you’re like me, the only flower that survives under your thumb is a paper one. And that’s ok, because paper flowers can look and feel like the real thing – or not. That’s up to you and one of the fun benefits of making paper blooms.
But don’t think you have to come up with the design from scratch. Plenty of talented bloggers graciously share their paper flower templates, and it’s a great place to start.
Transforming paper into botanicals is a growing trend, and for good reason.
Making paper flowers is a calming and meditative practice. Petal by petal, stamen to leaf, take delight in the moments of joy as your flower unfolds.
Honestly, it’s magical.
Don’t think paper flowers are a sloppy second to the real bloom. Paper flowers are a *close* second to nature – that’s just a fact. But that doesn’t mean they can’t capture the same essence and beauty as a real flower.
Paper flowers offer several advantages
Paper flowers are wilt and droop free and look vibrant and fresh year round.
And it doesn’t stop there.
Flowers can be made to match the perfect color palette, or season, and made months in advance – or made in a pinch with the help from a flower template (wink). No surprise, they are a chosen favourite for celebrations.
Big, small, realistic, whimsical.
It’s all possibly with some gorgeous colorful paper, tacky glue, and sprinkle of imagination.
