This is the first post on my blog, and I’m super excited to have it up and running though there is still lots of work that I need to put in. This paper flower backdrop you see pictured here was made for my best friend’s engagement party as a photo booth. I’ve uploaded a tutorial on YouTube showing how I made this. Free flower and leaf templates included later in this post. You can check out the video tutorials here:
Materials You’ll Need:
- Coloured paper or card stock* of your choice
- Glue gun
- Foam board
- Floral wire
- Floral wire cutter
- Circular object
– *Card stock is heavier paper. Coloured paper is usually around 20lbs, but card stock is usually around 70lbs.
– If you know you’re going to make a lot of flowers (mass producing), it’s easier to break down the process: tracing the templates and cutting them all out first, then assembling the flowers, followed by attaching the flowers to your board, then finishing off with the leaves.
– Be very careful with a hot glue gun. I used a pen to hold down the petals while they secured.
I made and used these templates myself, so they are not symmetrical or perfect in any sense. But if you like my backdrop then they got the job done 🙂
I’ve numbered the petals in the order they are to be assembled, along with the number of petals of that size you’ll need.
I hope these will be of help to you, and thank you all so much for your support! As always, please share your awesome work with me when you’re done! Tag me on Instagram @sherrycrafts, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy crafting and have a wonderful day 🙂
