Paper Flowers for Banner 23 freebie  

It's time to change our very large welcome banner in the fellowship area at church to a spring/summer theme. Pastor Ken and I have been working hard (and spending a fortune) planning a very special event for April 22nd as a community outreach. We are having a night of teaching about the Passover as it reveals Jesus Christ to us. We are going to have the Passover/Seder dinner along with the teaching so that everyone can experience this amazing insight that every Christian should have. You'll never see the Lord's Supper/Communion the same!
Given that we hope to have lots of visitors, I wanted the new welcome banner to be very bright and cheerful - flowers seemed the thing for spring and summer. I didn't want to paint again. It just didn't see special enough, so I've been designing and making all manner of paper flowers - 27 different blossoms in all. My table was a mountain of lovely blossoms - so happy to look at and that's not even all of them! I thought you might like to know how to make some of them, so for 27 days I'll be posting a tutorial for one of these lovely blossoms!
This time we are making this pink flower and it's so easy!
This flower starts with a circle of paper. Cut six slits from the edge of the circle toward the center. Put a dot of low melt glue on the right edge corner of a section and stick the left edge corner of the section to it's right on top of it. Work your way around the circle to form the center of the flower. If you want a small center, make your slits longer toward the center. If you want a wider center, make smaller slits toward the center.
Now get four small white coffee filters. Fold each one in half, then bring the corners together so they meet in the middle and crease again. You now have a triangle with two loose flaps that meet in the middle. Glue each triangle to the solid end of the center cup so that the four touch each other with the flap sides up as shown in the picture. Fluff them open by sticking your fingers in them to show their detail.

Using Martha Stewart's snowflake punch, punch several snowflakes of a complimentary color.

Using your mouse pad and the rounded end of a paint brush, rub in the centers of the snowflakes to shape them like we did the petals.Attach the shaped snowflakes to the edge of the center cup using low melt glue.
Now cut several (I did four) squares of tissue paper. On each square, put a dot of low melt glue near the corner and then pinch pinch it to the side closest to it (refer to the photo). Do this to all four corners of all four squares.

Nest the four squares in each other, staggering where the pinched points fall.

Glue the center you have made into the center of this nest and then arrange the squares so that they cup the center as you see in the picture. The degree you cup each layer is what gives you the appearance of graduated sizes. You're done!See our flower in the upper right corner in the picture below?If you like it well enough to download, please leave me a comment at the bottom of this post as I have disabled 4shared comments.
