Paper Flowers Wreath Tutorial

5-6 different sheets 12X12 double-sided pattern cardstock  ( Used here- papers from Crate Paper Resoration Collection, Crate Paper Story Teller, and Creative Imaginations Creative CafĂ©)
1-2 different sheets 12x12 solid cardstock (Used here- 1 sheet of yellow textured cardstock)
Flower & circle punches, dies, or cutting files (Used here- 1 inch scallop circle punch, Cricut Plantin School Book and Cricut Walk through my garden)
Chipboard & cardstock stickers (Used here- Crate Paper Story Teller)
Hot glue gun
Zip Dry glue
Foam tape
Twig wreath (Used one with a 6 inch opening here)
1 yard each of 2 different ruffled ribbons

Step 1:
Hot glue the ribbons around the center edge of the wreath.  I didn’t have enough to cover the center, but it is fine because the flowers will cover the “empty” space.  (The leaves are there so you can see how much they fill the space.)

Step 2:
Cut flowers, leaves, and flower centers.  The sizes used here vary from 2.5 inches to 3.5 inches.  The two largest leaves are about 4.5 inches.  Using your fingers or a pen, curl the edges of the leaves and petals.
The centers of 5 flowers have word stickers for some added visual interest and some flowers have the centers popped with foam tape, the other centers are just Zip Dry glued.
Play with the layout of the flowers and leaves.  **Tip 1-When you have everything pretty, you may want to take a digital picture and refer to your camera as you glue. 
**Tip 2- Keep each flower type to an odd number for a more aesthetically pleasing bouquet.

Step 3:
Hot glue the leaves, then flowers,
and finally the chipboard shapes to wreath.

Step 4:
Hang up your beautiful wreath and enjoy!

Hope you were inspired today!  If you make your own wreath, please leave me a comment.  I'd love to see your take on this idea. :)


  1. Absolutely wonderful Moriah!!! You know I saw a very plain wreath yesterday while out, nothing really special at all about and not that large either and they wanted $25 for it. I about fell over. Your wreath on the other hand is priceless. Nice work! :)

  2. I really like this!! I didn't even notice the bicycle peeking out the first time I saw this! I think I might need to find a wreath...


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
