Paper Flowers for Banner 26 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!
I have given this template out once before, so if you got it then, you don't need to download today. I have drawn this template which prints on a regular size sheet of paper and will give you seven flowers of different sizes. Cut these out and then sort of gather them as you coil them into a splendid flower. For all of you who just don't seem to have the knack (like me), here's how I do it.

I always reuse things, so whenever something comes out of the printer wrong or we don't end up using it, I use the other side for my notes as I design. This time I printed the template on the back of one of these pages because I love the "newsprint/old book page" look. Granted, I don't think this weight of paper is ideal for these flowers, but that's what I used. I cut the largest flower out and then gathered it creasing with my fingers as you see below.
Now since they simply don't assemble well for me, I tack the bottoms every little way with just a touch of low melt glue as I'm gathering and wrapping it around and pinching the bottoms together as you see below.And here's my final result! Now go and try for yourself and send me some shots of your creations and I'll post them.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.
