DCWV has a new paper created specifically for making flowers — Petal Paper. DCWV has been a long-time producer of the stack– a set of coordinated papers. Stacks have been made in so many themes and colors over the years. Happy members of the American Crafts family of products, they continue their pursuit of serving the consumer and their crafty needs with new paper stacks releasing several times a year in updated themes and colors. You can find them online and in a variety of craft stores. At first glance it looks like fragile crepe paper, but its not. It’s very cool and I can’t wait to share with you two home decor pieces with you.
I experimented with a couple different kinds of flowers that I have made in the past with felt, card stock and foiled paper. My favorite small flower to make with Petal Paper is rolled flowers!
I placed each flower in a jar that once had a candle in it. I up-cycled a candle votive to finish of the decor piece. Here is the tutorial on how to create it:
Another one of my favorite kinds of flowers to make is made with hearts! I made a small one with the paper and thought it was cute, but then it dawned on me that similiar flowers were being sold on Etsy for $45-$60 for one big one. So, I created a HUGE flower that is so easy to make!
This flower is 22 inches! It would be perfect on a wall as a back drop or as a center piece for a table. You could easily make two flowers per paper stack! The best part is it comes together fast and only requires scissors and glue. Check out this tutorial on how to create one:
Please leave a comment on my post telling me know which flower you like better — the rolled one or the huge one. I like them both and can’t pick a favorite. Would you consider subscribing to my blog? I switched platforms a year ago and have not gotten all of my subscribers over here. I would truly appreciate having you on my crafty journey! Your next stop is:
Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
