How to Make Small Paper Flowers for Cards

Today I’m showing how to make small paper flowers for cards.  A couple weeks ago I shared a window card with you made using the Window with Double Stitch.  I  had the four rectangle sections left over from the window project and thought they would be perfect used with small flower pots and a sweet sentiment.  I paired the rectangles with Small Flowers #3, Tiny Flower Buds, Tall Terracotta Pots, Leaves and Greenery and a sentiment from the Kittie Says Phrases #1

The Rectangles and Card Base

  • Cut a green card base 4.75″ x 3.50″.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the green layer and attach it to the A2 sized card base.
  • Use black ink to stamp the sentiment on one rectangle layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the rectangle layers and attach them evenly to the green layer.

Shaping the Flowers

Arrange the Small Paper Flowers in Pots

  • Cut the pots using yellow cardstock and color them using Color Fuse Set #2 Pumpkin ink and a mini applicator.
  • Cut the foliage using green cardstock.

  • Attach the foliage sections to the back of the pots using glossy accents. Note:  I use my reverse tweezers to hold my foliage and flowers.

  • Use glossy accents to attach tiny white premade Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers.  Note:  I always keep a small craft sheet filled with Nuvo Crystal Drops on hand.  I use my paper piercer to pick them up off the sheet and to attach them in the flower centers.

Adding the tree tiny flowers and foliage to the sentiment layer created interest and carried in the small flower theme.
