Spring Fling Flower Tutorial...

Today I am sharing a quick flower tutorial with you. This is a Paperhaus Spring Fling project and you can find all the details on the PaperHaus blog.
 There are four quick and simple flowers that I would like to share with you. I cannot take credit for creating these flowers, as I have learnt these techniques from other scrappers. 
But I am happy to share what I have learnt. 
And just a note - double sided paper works best.

You can create four different types of flowers with just two punches, and a few scrapping supplies.
And most scrappers will have these supplies in their stash, so you don't have to buy anything new. If you don't have a heart punch, you can always use a template, or die cut tool. 


Step 1: You will need 3 or more paper circles of varying sizes. 
Don't make perfect circles - the edges need to be slightly rough and uneven. 
Pierce a hole through the centre of each.

Step 2: Cut six slots into each circle (as shown in the diagram).

Step 3: Ink or colour the petal edges if desired. 

Step 4: Scrunch each circle up into a little ball (you can spray with water first to soften the paper). 

Step 5: Carefully (the paper can tear easily) unfold each scrunched up circle. 

Step 6: Layer circles together and secure through the centre with a brad. Flower complete. 


Step 1: Punch out one circle and 11-13 heart shapes (it will depend on the size of your punch). 

Step 2: Fold each of the hearts in half to form petals.

Step 3: Place glue in the centre of the circle and start placing the heart petals in place.

Step 4: Continue adding the heart petals until you have completed the flower shape. 
Work quickly before the glue dries. 

Step 5: Finish with a button, brad, or rhinestone in the centre of the flower. Flower is complete. 


Step 1: Punch out 12 circles.

Step 2: Fold each circle as shown in the image, to create a cone shape. 

Step 3: Ensure that you have eleven cones and one circle.

Step 4: Add glue to the centre of the circle, and start placing the cones around the circle. 

Step 5: Continue placing cones around the entire circle. Work quickly before the glue dries. 

Step 6: Finish with a button, brad, or rhinestone in the centre of the flower. Flower is complete.


Step 1: Punch out 1 circle, and 25-30 heart shapes.

Step 2: Mould/bend each heart to add shape and definition 
(you do not want them to be completely flat). 

Step 3: Add glue to the centre of the flower, and start placing the hearts around the outer edge of the circle. 
Work from the outside edge inwards. 

Step 4: Continue placing hearts around the circle, slowly working inwards. 
Keep working in a circular motion.

Step 5: Finish with a resin flower centre, button, brad, or rhinestone in the centre. 
Flower is complete.

Thank-you for dropping by today. I hope you have found this flower tutorial helpful (don't forget to share if you make some of these creations - I'd love to see your work).

Cheers and Hugs, xxx
