What is a White Paper Flowers?

White paper flowers are a way of decorating nearly any event or celebration with soft, realistic-looking flowers that don’t require water or sunlight. Their secret is that they are actually made of paper, giving them their most unique advantage: affordability.

Paper flowers may be the easiest way to decorate for nearly any event. Their most unique benefit is incredibly affordable; no more breaking your bank at local flower shops or grocery stores! If you know exactly the look and style you want to achieve, crafting paper flowers is a straightforward way to work toward that goal.

5 Ways To Make White Paper Flowers:

1. Cut Petals With Sharp Blades:

Using a pair of sharp kitchen or paper crafting scissors, cut small slits into the paper as shown in the image.  Then, cut out the petals. (This way of cutting paper petals usually produces more delicate and lacey results.)

2. Make A Paper Punch Flower:

Using a paper punch, make many holes along the same line around the perimeter of your paper.

3. Cut Out Shapes With Circle Punches:

Punch circles out of your paper using different-sized circle punches. (Make sure that you punch in even intervals.) Next, take the outermost petals and carefully cut them into each one to make a fringe.

4. Cut Out Shapes With Scissors:

Use a pair of scissors to cut out a continuous strand from your paper to make a fringe. (Make sure to hold down the loose strands as you cut.) Then, move on to another row and repeat the process until all desired petals have been cut.

5. Make Fringe:

Cut out a strand of paper and hold it down at the bottom with one hand while you cut up one side with your other hand to make fringe. (Make sure that you don’t cut all the way through.) Do this until the desired amount of petals is produced.

Painting the paper flower

If you have an old lamp with a bare bulb and need some greenery, then paper flowers are the answer. You can paint them on the bottom or back of a lampshade to create a simple DIY project that complements any decor. The paper flower blooms can be painted any color you like depending on your preference.

First, to paint the flowers, trace their shape onto the back of a sheet of paper with a pencil. Next, you can use crayons or colored pencils to draw your petals and make them more realistic. If you paint the lampshade white for a modern look, you can paint the paper flowers white.
