How To'sday | Paper Flowers by Jessica Laureano

Posted by Melodee Cloud

Dimensional flowers are truly all the rage in the scrapbooking world right now. We've had such a great time seeing how our fans have made flowers using different techniques. Today Jessica Laureano has been kind enough to show us a technique to make flowers using paper circles.


Step 1 : Punch eight small circles. I used my 1 inch circle punch.

Step 2 : Take 1 circle and fold in half, then fold in half again for quartered folds. Open and lay flat.

Step 3 : Take the seven remaining circles and fold in adjacent segments as shown, creating a V shape in each.

Step 4 : Adhere the fold circles, one at a time, to the center of the quartered circle, using the folds as guides.

Step 5 : Finish with a button in the center.


I have seen gorgeous flowers like this before, but didn't know how to make them and couldn't wait to try it out! I made this card in minutes.

Thank you Jessica! It's been so great to see inspiration from so many of you. If you have a great idea that you'd like to see featured on How To'sday, please feel free to send photos and directions to me at

Be sure to check in tomorrow at 9am for our next Mid Week Mojo.

Have a happy, scrappy day!
