In this photo tutorial you’ll learn step by step how to create this flower card.
Step 1: Take two sheets of different colored paper and fold them in half.
Step 2: Draw a flower with 4 petals on the colored paper.
Or.. download a printable template from my blog. The link can be found in the video description.
Step 3: Cut out the flower shape with scissors.
You’ve got 4 flower shapes now. We will use only 3 of them. The remaining one can serve as a template if you want to make more flowers.
Step 4: Put double-sided adhesive tape or glue in the center of two flower shapes.
Then put the shapes onto each other, but first turn the middle flower shape a quarter (90 degrees).
Step 5: Fold the flower petals a bit to add more dimension.
Step 6: For the finishing touch: put a sticky rhinestone in the center of the top flower.
Step 7: Then take a sheet of green paper and fold it twice.
Step 8: Draw a half leaf shape from the fold and cut it out with scissors.
Step 9: Now you will have two leaf shapes which you need to unfold a bit.
Check if you like the leaf shape size compared to the flower shape.
Step 10: Attach the flower & leaves to the middle of a blank greeting card by using double-sided adhesive tape or glue.
Step 11: Fold the flower petals one last time to add some more dimension if you like.
Your flower card is ready now!
