Flowers look really pretty in a garden. One can always go out and enjoy their beauty. We have a common practice of gifting fresh flowers to each other on different occasions. Fresh flowers wilt after some time and lose their beauty when they are detached from the plant. We can also gift out near and dear ones flowers made from paper. They are equally pretty and colorful. We can add these faux flowers to different gifting options.

  • This makes your flower bright and beautiful.
  • Fold this 3D flower back.

✨ Step 7: Sticking the petals and making multiple flowers

  • We will need multiple such flowers to make a beautiful bouquet inside the card.
  • You can use more such square white placards to make these flowers.
  • You can make around seven such flowers.
  • Use pencil colors to shade the insides of the flowers.

✨ Step 8: Sticking these flowers together

  • Now we need to fit these flowers on top of each other.
  • Take a folded flower and arrange it alongside the other flower.
  • Add another flower in the perpendicular direction.
  • Mark the tips of the petals to guide you while sticking the flowers together.

✨ Step 9: Stacking the flowers on top of each other

  • Keep on stacking more and more folded flowers on top of each other.
  • This will give a nice pattern of flowers.
  • Leave on side of the flowers stack open.

✨ Step 10: Stacking more flowers

  • Stack these folded flowers on top of each other.
  • This will give you a bouquet of flowers when you open them.

✨ Step 11: Start to stick the flowers

  • Use a glue to stick the flowers in place.
  • You need to stick the flowers in the same order as they were stacked.

✨ Step 12: Sticking all the stacked flowers together

  • Slowly keep on sticking the stacked flowers on top of each other.
