I got this paper flower craft idea from bluebells and hyacinth flowers.
There are many paper flower tutorials on the web, I wanted to make an easy paper flower craft that is suitable for kids and adults. The process of making these flowers are simple but in the end, they look very elegant. My inspiration for making these flowers came from my sister. I will be linking her ideas with this content after the tutorial. I have made paper hyacinths before for my clients. I made this paper flower craft with easy patterns, you don’t even need a template for this craft. But I will be attaching a paper flower template just in case you need some extra help.
Even though I was inspired by bluebell flowers to make this craft, I think these paper flowers look more like Muscari flowers also known as grape hyacinths.
Kids, you should know flowers don’t only look beautiful but flowers have lots of benefits as well.
Flowers are often used as medicine and remedies.
Here are the names of a few flowers and their benefits:
- Hibiscus flowers are used to make hair oils, which help hair to grow and be healthy.
- Flowers are used for making essential oils. Essential oils are used for aromatherapy. Rose essential oils help with anxiety.
- Tea tree oils are used for skin care.
- Flowers were used for making antibiotics in the old times.
Remember that, even though flowers have a lot of benefits, it is not safe to use them for anything without an expert’s help.
Enough with the chit-chats, let’s get into today’s tutorial for our paper flower crafts.

Tools and Materials For Paper Flower Craft:
- Colorful crafting papers.

Step 1: Cut out circles:
Use the PDF templates to cut out the circular-shaped petals for the flower.
You need at least five petals to make each flower.
You can make the paper flower templates using a circle drawing ruler or a compass. If you are making large flowers cut out at least 9-11 petals.
Fold the two sides of the round paper towards the center.
Apply glue on one side then overlap it with the other side to make your paper flower’s petal.
Similarly, make the rest of the petals.
Cut out a rectangular green craft papet to make your flower’s stem.
Roll the rectangular green craft paper to make a stick, apply glue at the end of the paper’s corner to secure the rolled paper stick.
Take one of the petals, apply glue on the bottom of the petal, and then join it on the top of the green paper stick.
Take the second petal, and glue it below the first petal on one side of the stem.
Glue the third petal on the opposite side of the first petal. Then, glue the rest of the flower petals on the stick one below another on both sides of the stem.
Use the flower templates again to cut out the leaf shapes using the same green craft paper as the flower’s stem.
Glue the leaves on the flower’s stem to finish making your paper flower craft.
Make a few more flowers to make a paper flower bouquet.
