Easy Peasy Spring Flowers

Since Easter is just around the corner, I wanted to make some spring colored flowers that didn’t take much time. I love to distress with chalk but these flowers are quicker because there is no chalking or inking involved. Easy for anyone who wants to make paper flowers that are super fast!

Here are the supplies: 
You need 3-2 inch flowers, 1-1 1 ¼  inch flower, 1inch flower, and ¾ inch flower…I used my cricut serenade cartridge…but punches work too.  They are all the same flower. 
Quilling Tool or Popsicle Stick
Colored Cardstock and Kraft Paper

First twist each edge of the colored cardstock sideways on all three flowers.

Next curl upwards all the kraft cardstock on all 3 flowers. 

Last, glue each of the 3 colored flowers on top of each other and from large to small kraft flowers till you get to the center and add a pearl. Easy Peasy! 

Here are some spring flowers in different colors.

  2. these are so nice. Not sure what twisting each edge of the cardstock means. I wonder if you could help me out with that technique?

  3. Very pretty flowers! Thank you so much for sharing them with us.

  4. Thanks Ladies!
    This is for Jody, what I mean by twisting each edge is that when you place the quilling tool slit into the paper you just twist it and pull out the tool. Hope that helps? :)

  5. If you change the colour it looks more beautiful.Would you like to tell me why you thought about it.Gifts to Pakistan
