Papercrafting 101: Handmade Flowers Video Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Today I have Papercrafting 101 Handmade Flowers Video Tutorial to share with you.  It’s the second installment in my Papercrafting 101 series on YouTube.  You can find the first video , All About Adhesives, HERE.

So many of you have asked me to do some flower making tutorials.  Here’s what we will cover in this loaded video tutorial:

  • Flower Making Tools
  • Filling Flower Centers: Stamens and Prills
  • How to quickly and easily color flower petals
  • Stamping and die cutting flower layers
  • Shaping petals the easy way
  • Different surfaces to use when making paper flowers

Since we are coming up on Christmas, I zeroed in on handmade poinsettias.  Rest assured, the tips and techniques I share in this tutorial can easily be translated when making other paper flowers.

This video covers a lot of ground, so grab a cuppa and a snack, your pencil and a notebook because class is in session.

    Thank you, thank you! I’ve always wanted to be able to make flowers that look good. This is so helpful! Now if I could just make a bow . I purchased the bow maker from RRR and I’m still bad at it. Maybe it’s me but I find the directions confusing.

    You missed your calling as a teacher, Kathy! Very informative and great tips on “how to…”, products, and tools. (Love the Dress My Craft Groove Golf Tool Set!) Would love to see more flower videos, tips on 3D folds (especially using pastes glitter, etc to enhance the 3D folder results), also more about products to enhance the look of paper, flowers, etc. Also appreciated links to products used today!

    Thank you for your tips, especially for showing your hot glue tips (which I rarely use) and the showing of different products you use to enhance the outcome.

    I would be interested in the tools you use to make your beautiful creations ( techniques in using them or how they enhance your creativity.)

    Thanks for sharing!!! It is appreciated!
