Prep Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour
Difficulty easy

Materials

  • black, purple and light lavender 130 g / 80-90 lb card stock
  • silver glitter paper
  • petal and circle templates (download at the end of this post)
  • a piece of cardboard
  • a piece of ribbon (optional)
  • glue sticks

Tools

  • craft scissors
  • hot glue gun

Instructions

  1. Create the base. To make the base, glue the template on a piece of cardboard and cut out. The guides on the template help to space out the petals evenly.
    Tip: If you want to hang the flower, make a small slit near the top of the circle and insert a piece of ribbon.
  2. Use the template. Print out the petal template and cut out the large and medium-sized shape. Trace each template with a pencil and cut out the petals. We used a white pencil to see the outline on the black and purple cardstock. You need 12 of each large and medium petals, the base, a small silver glitter circle for the center, and one black and lavender strip of cardstock.
  3. Shape the petals. Place a small dot of hot glue near to the bottom of a petal and glue the base of the petal forming a cone. Be careful when handling the glue, it can be quite hot. Repeat this step for all black and purple petals. Then add hot glue to the tip of a purple petal, insert into the black one and pinch together to secure.
  4. Build the center. Fold the lavender and black cardstock strips lengthwise in half and glue the edges of each strip together. Using scissors, cut fringes along the fold of the lavender paper, about half a centimeter or quarter to an eighth of an inch wide and three quarters down the strip. Apply a line of hot glue along the bottom of the black strip and tightly roll the strip up. It’s best to work in sections, so the glue doesn’t harden too quickly and aim to make the roll as compact as possible. Glue the ends and then repeat this step with the lavender strip. Finally, fluff out the center and attach the silver glitter circle in the middle.
  5. Assemble the flower. To assemble the flower, add a little hot glue to the back of a petal and position it in one of the segments of the template. Continue attaching petals around the cardboard circle. Add a generous amount of hot glue into the center of the template and firmly stick on the flower center.
    Tip: To remove any glue strings blow over the flower with a hair dryer until the strings disappear.
