Paper flowers on Handmade Photoframe

Handmade Photoframe with Paper Flowers
Handmade Photoframe
I made a handmade photoframe by recycling a cardboard piece from a box.I love making paper flowers- they are so easy to make and add so much beauty to your projects. Here is the link to how to make a DIY Handmade Photoframe.
Handmade Photoframe
I love to transform mundane objects and if it involves recycling it makes it all the more exciting! This photo shows the cardboard and papers I used to make the photoframe and paper flowers.
Closeup of my quilled butterfly inspired my my blogger pal Mihaela. The white daisies are punchcraft paper flowers.
Paper Flowers
 I used punched balloon shaped petals to make the large pink paper flowers on the cardboard photoframe.

Handmade Photoframe
All the paper flowers in this photoframe are easy to make but I always feel that if you see the steps to make something,making it gets even more simple.So sharing some simple steps and tips to make the paper flower.
This Paper flower can be made with the circle,oval ,tear drop or balloon shape. I used the balloon punch to make these punchcraft paper flowers.
Paper Flower Tutorial
Lightly emboss a circle,sun ,small flower or even a scrap of paper to form a cup shaped base for your paper flower.
Paper Flower Tutorial
Pinch your petal between your thumb and index finger

Paper Flower Tutorial
You need just 5-6 petals to make your paper flower.
Paper Flower Tutorial
You can apply glue to the folded tip of your petal or onto the cupped base as I did here on my paper flower.
Paper Flower Tutorial
Overlap subsequent petals and position the petals as you desire.I found using a thin tipped object like my tweezers tip so much faster than using fingers [I have fat finger tips!!]

Paper Flower Tutorial
Here is the finished paper flower.
Paper Flower Tutorial
The smaller pink paper flower is made from circles.Here is the tutorial link : how to  make Circle Paper flowers.
Handmade Photoframe
I stuck some quilled leaf shapes to make a large leaf for my paper daisy.Here is the link to :how I made the quilled leaf shape.Added some Pie Lane glitter balls to glamorize the white punched flower.
I recycled  some cord and an old button by threading the gold cord through the button and attaching it to my photoframe.

  48. Now we all want to see your lovey dovey picture. ;) This is so pretty. Love the bright yellow color of your piece of corrugated cardboard...the texture adds so much to the frame. The quilled pieces are beautiful...you have a talented friend there. And I love your dainty pink flowers. I have a new respect for flower makers...they look so gorgeous, but they are not easy and take some serious patience. The glittery outlines kick up the glamour level. I really love this one!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow...thats a pretty frame...love the quilled butterfly!!

  60. Stunning Frame... I just love the wonderful colors. At one time I could Quill but not any more, I have Arthritis in my hands pretty bad but it could be worse. So no more Quilling for me but I do not let that slow me down I still make my cards and I'm so happy for the copic markers it makes it so much easier to color things. I really enjoy seeing your creations.
