Summer Kid Craft: DIY 3D Flowers

Are you loving the look of handmade, paper flowers? Oh I am SO loving them. Something about the texture of paper, just gets me all happy and excited. So I was super happy when Echo Park Paper recently released new 3D Flower Dies. I thought it would be fun to show you how easy it is to create 3d Flowers with your kids using these amazing dies. Be sure to pin your favorite images to inspire you later!

3D Flower Instructions


Step 1: Use the dies to cut out the petals for the flowers. A small flower will use only the smallest petal and will need 5-6 petals cut. A medium flower will need both the smallest and medium petals die cut (cut 5-6 petals). And a large flower will need all three petals cut (cut 5-6 petals).

Step 2: Use a pencil to gently bend the petals back.

Step 3: Use liquid glue or glue dots to gently overlap the bottom flap of each petal over one another.

Step 4: Begin adhering petals on top of each other, slightly overlapping as you go.
