Spiral Paper Flower

Let me introduce you to the spiral paper flower that anyone can create in just a few minutes!  Despite the short amount it takes to create these spiral paper flowers, the impact is great. My first handmade flowers were made out of felt. I made them all of the time, but then came that fateful night that I ran out of material.  It was too late to run to Michaels to buy more, so I picked up some paper I had lying around and tried making a flower using the same technique.

The paper flower obsession begins!

It worked beautifully, and from that point on, I only used paper.  These paper flowers are the easiest to make and are absolutely adorable.  Of course, the bigger the paper you use, the bigger your paper “rose” grows to be.  I love to add some paint to mine to give them dimension. If you make a few (or more) of them and group them together, it can look like an entire garden.

Below is a step by step tutorial to guide you in the process of creating your first spiral paper flower.  We’ve included printable instructions at the bottom of this post in case you prefer paper instructions.

Let’s get crafty and start making the spiral paper flower!

The supplies needed for this spiral paper flower project are so few that you will most likely already have them on hand… SCORE!
