Planning a party? Or planning a photoshoot that needs a perfect backdrop? These large paper flowers are the simply stunning go-to decoration for an easy backdrop. I made these for a photoshoot backdrop which came absolutely stunning. The giant flowers made the pictures look more unique and festive.  Learning how to make one of these is surprisingly simple. You can choose the size and depth of the flowers based on the backdrop size you decide. Let’s get started with the supplies you need. For the detailed video tutorial click below.

Supplies Needed:

  • A square sized cardboard piece (I used cheerios box)
  • Scissor
  • Glue Gun

  1. Take a construction paper, trace and cut the template for the flowers. Make sure you follow the dimensions mentioned in the above video.
  2. Once the template is ready, decide your flower colors and start cutting the petals using the template.
  3. Approximately you might need 6 petals for each layer. We are making a 3layered flower here.
  4. Now make a small cut in the center of the petals and glue them together to create a petal appearance as shown in the video.
  5. From a cheerios box cut a square shaped piece and start pasting the petals in a circular manner.
  6. Make sure you maintain a circular pattern until you reach the inner layer.
  7. For the center, take a strip-shaped construction paper and cut into tiny strips leaving the other end attached as shown in the video.
  8. Roll the strip carefully and paste it to make sure the roll doesn’t come off. Now cautiously open the strips facing outward to create a bloom view.
  9. Paste this little strip flower in the center of the giant flower.

Viola!!! Your adorable yet simply stunning giant flowers are ready. You can make them as many you want. To make a different flower with different size adjust the petal dimensions.

    These look awesome! I always have trouble making the right size or I make one side larger than the other. I will try and follow your instructions and hope I get something similar LOL
