Looking for an adorable DIY that is sure to bring lots of love? Stop right here and check out how to make this gorgeous paper flower bouquet. What a great way to pop in and show some love for spring, a birthday, Mother’s Day, or simply, just because.
My mom has been providing us so much support every day and I have been wanting to get her some flowers to thank her for all of her help. When a friend introduced me to Wrappily and I viewed their product line, I knew I wanted to use their gorgeous Eco-Friendly paper to create a DIY flower bouquet for her. How could she not love them when they are sustainable, made from recycled paper, and are this gorgeous?
What little girl doesn’t love dressing up and making a fun craft project? Mine sure does! Grab yourself a fun outfit and these supplies and get to work!

This DIY comes with a quick preface… DO NOT get overwhelmed by all of the photos! I wanted it to be super clear so I took LOTS of photos to show you step by step how easy it is!
Cut your gorgeous paper into a 3″ x 3″ square – (I used a post it note pad as my template, it was perfect) – you can make as many as you want for your bouquet, I made six.
Fold your square paper diagonally (corner to corner), once, twice, a third time, and then draw a big arch as shown (you can freehand that or use a quarter coin as a template).
Cut along the arch and slowly open the paper up entirely until it creates a flower shape.
Cut ONE section out of the flower.
Apply a very small amount of glue on the left edge of the opening you just cut and glue the right edge to it to create a cone shaped flower. Pic 4 shows seven finished glued flowers.
Use scissors to create a hole about the size of your wood dowel. Use hot glue on the end of the dowel and insert the dowel until it sticks out of the inside of the flower about 1/4″-1/2″.
Cut a 1-2″ piece of Wrappily Hemp Cord (or craft ribbon or twine), use hot glue gun to cover the wood dowel inside the middle of the flower and begin to wrap the hemp cord around until it sticks to the glue. Use glitter to cover the top exposed piece of the dowel and, Voila!
Here’s my cutie helping with the glitter!!!
Didn’t they turn out amazing??? To boot, all of Wrappily’s Eco-Friendly paper are double sided so you get double the bang for your buck!
Here we go! Popping in to surprise Nana with her flowers!
