How do you make a lavender flower out of paper? Steps
Making this paper lavender is so easy! Watch the video tutorial at the top or follow these simple instructions below! 🙂
Get the purple coloured paper (or any other colour of your choice) and fold it in half, two times as shown below.
Using scissors, make cuts approximately 0.5 cm apart as shown below.
Unfold it fully.
Now, glue both sides together where the cuts are not present.
Let the glue dry. In the meantime, let’s make a stem for the paper lavender.
Get the green coloured paper (17 x 14 cm) and start rolling it from one corner using a skewer. Use of skewer is optional here. It just helps you to get a perfect roll and makes the rolling easier. Once you roll it fully till the other corner, secure the ends using glue.
Cut off a little bit from both the ends of the stem to make them perfectly round.
Now, take another green paper (14 x 12 cm) and cut it in the shape of leaves.
Let’s attach all the pieces together! Take the purple coloured paper from step 4, stick one end of it on the top of the stem. Now, start rolling it around the stem downwards while sticking it to the stem using glue.
Now, glue the leaves around the stem and gently fluff up the petals of the flower with your fingers. That’s it! You have made a gorgeous paper lavender! 🙂 How easy was that!
