Paper Flowers for Banner 27 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 saw the most beautiful paper roses at Paper Studio and just had to try them for myself. There is a fabulous video tutorial at http://paperstudioink.blogspot.com/2010/10/tuesday-tutorial-making-paper-flowers.html. They used one of those expensive machines to cut their shapes out, but I don't have one, so...I needed to make myself a template. I created the shape and then since I had no idea how large her flowers were, I made it in six different sizes from 2"-4.5". She curled the petals on a wooden skewer. I didn't have one, so I curled mine over a thin screw driver. She used some wonderful fast drying glue. I didn't have it, so I used a very thin layer of low melt glue and it worked fine. I made sure to curl the glued petals immediately after gluing before it hardened. I didn't have 2-sided paper, or that intriguing finishing spray she used, but I think my first three roses turned out pretty well! Enough to make me want to keep practicing!!!

So, the good news for you is that since I made all those different size templates, I'm going to give them to all of you who don't have fancy cutting machines either! So, enjoy and fill the world with lovely paper roses! I would love to see your creations and share them with everyone here! A big thank you to the ladies at Paper Studio for bringing this to my attention - now we can all make these little beauties! A nd this brings our 27 days of paper flower tutorials to an end. I hope you have enjoyed them!
PS...I just got my mail...is your box filling up with political junk like mine? As I was tossing it it occurred to me that they are printed on nice heavy cardstock and they are glossy and rich... yup! I used the piece of cardstock I had cut the roses above out of as a template, traced three of my flowers onto the political paper and made this lovely flower out of it! :) The Lord promises beauty for ashes - here's ashes turned into beauty!!! :)
