Bright Paper Flower Craft Will Make Spring Come Sooner, Right?

I am about to eat my arm I’m so over Winter. And I know those of you in Florida want to smack us northerners silly for our whining, but seriously, now. Half of us look like vampires by now and are chugging Vitamin D pills by the handful.

I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and do the equivalent of a rain dance to usher in Spring.

Today we are sitting down and making the brightest, most colorful paper flowers the world has ever seen. Look:

Supplies

Ya don’t need much here, just a bunch of colored card stock (which you should already have from making my other colored paper projects)

Colored card stock – I used these 2 neon packs: one and two

Scissors

Glue sticks (yes, I have fallen in love with plain old Elmers glue sticks, and this is a great price.)

Circle punches if you want perfect dots: small | medium | large | extra large

Here’s a set of 3 that I haven’t tried, but they get good reviews.

Basics, but definitely handy:

pencil (my fave, but totally unnecessary for this)

Cutting mat

Craft knife

BIG ruler I haven’t mentioned before how often I use my big metal ruler, but it’s always.

Directions

I love typing the word ‘directions’ when the project is so open-ended and there are zero rules.

  1. Cut out flower things.
  2. Glue them to backgrounds.

I used a combination of circle punches and freeform-cut shapes, and put together the most eye-jarring colors I could. Some flowers resembled flowers more than other abstract creations.

Some had 3-d elements, and some were flat on the paper. Some I folded the paper in half, cut half the flower out, and unfolded it to make a whole symmetrical flower.

This is the sort of project I can see coming back to again and again, whenever I feel a need for a shot of color. Oh, yes, now prepare yourself to make these giant paper popsicles this summer when it’s all hot and sizzly out.
