By Meream

Drowning in wrapping paper? To give you recycling inspiration, we have here a list of pretty DIY Paper Flowers. Now these DIY paper flowers may not exactly call for the use of wrapping paper but that's not an inflexible rule. For some of these DIY paper flowers, you can even use the boxes in which your gifts were placed. Happy paper crafting!

1 Dogwood

DogwoodThis is an easy DIY paper flower idea courtesy of Martha Stewart. To make these pretty flowers, you will need only card stock and scissors. Basically, you fold the card stock into squares and then fold again to make diagonal creases. You then cut your flower, mark the center, and then glue the finished paper item to branches.


2 Rolled

RolledHow pretty! This is one DIY paper flower project in which you can use your used wrapping paper. The prints sure add visual appeal to these already-gorgeous paper goodies. To make these, you simply cut paper circles, draw and cut spirally, wrap around a skewer to form the flower, and then glue to keep the "petals" from falling apart.
