Beautiful Paper Flowers for Mother's Day

Getting flowers for mom for Mother's Day is going to be a bit tougher this year. So to make it easier, I created these beautiful paper roses with the We R Memory Circle and Spin tool and beautiful papers from DCWV called Petal Paper. While these papers are specially made, you could follow the tutorial below and create these flowers with tissue paper, patterned paper, and even card stock. You know what, even magazine or newsprint would work too!

Start by placing your paper inside the Circle Spin and Trim tool. Cut a circle. The larger you made your circle, the larger your flower will be.

The Circle Spin and Trim tool has two blades stored in the top. (Love that!) Twist the blade into the slot that corresponds to the size you wish to cut. Place the paper inside, close the lid, and turn the knob. You will need to hold the tool down, like any other cutting tool.

Using a scissors, cut a spiral from your circle. Cut off the end to square it up, and trim up any other wonky edges that might appear.

Begin rolling the paper, starting from the outside and working your way in. Use your fingers to help keep the bottom paper level. The top is not a concern, as it spreads out, it will create more realistic looking petals.

Stop rolling once you reach the circle in the center of your paper.

Put glue on the bottom of your rolled up paper. I find that a sticky craft glue works best. 

Place the glue down into the circle left at the center of your paper. Hold in place for a few moments. And also, allow the roll of paper to loosen up slightly, once again, creating a flower that looks more real.
You can manipulate the paper how you see fit. Especially when working with a wet glue. There is time to arrange the paper as you see fit.

Make as many flowers as you desire. Don't forget to cut out some leaves from paper as well. They can also be folded and bent to add a realistic look.

Surprise mom with flowers for Mother's Day. No need to tell her how easy they were to make, all she will see is how beautiful they are!

Happy Mother's Day!

To those of you hurting this Mother's Day, you are near to my heart and in my prayers. <3 p="">
