DIY »Paper Flowers« by Anouk Böhmer


  • Werola Gloria Doublette
  •  Floral Tape
  • Styrofoam ball 2cm
  • Green coated wire (in this example I have used 1.2 mm thick)
  • Tacky glue
  • Scissors


  1. Cut from the orange paper a long strip of paper 12 cm long and 2.5 cm wide.  Cut out the template of the petal and use this to cut out 5 petals from the pink paper.
  2. Cut fringes in the yellow paper. Cut to the middle and try to make very thin fringes.
  3. Glue the styrofoam ball on the wire (put some glue on the wire and stick this in to the ball). Use the floral tape to wrap around the ball so the ball is covered with the tape and is green. Now you have your center.
  4. Put some glue on the yellow paper and glue this on the ball. Put it around the ball so it makes the stamen of the flower.
  5. Cut out the leaf petals, and if you like, use a pencil to create some shading. You can choose any colour you like to create some shading.
  6. After colouring the petals, you need to cup the petals. Put the petal between both hands and hold the petal with thumb and indexfinger. Gently stretch the paper and press your thumbs so the petal will start to cup. This is how you get a nice shape in your petals. Then put some glue at the bottom off the petal.
  7. Glue all the petals on the centre. Start with the first and go all around the centre. The five petals will cover the whole centre.
  8. After gluing all the petals, the flower will look like this.  No worries! Use your floral tape to cover the wire and bottom of the flower in a green color. Stretch the floral tape and cover the bottom and wire by turning the wire while putting on the floral tape.
  9. Open the flower by bending the glued petals. You will see your beautiful bloom. Sometimes the yellow stamen are also not open. You can gently push them into a good position.
