Happy Tuesday, crafters! Today I have an adorable ruffled paper flower that I’m going to show you how to make. Its so easy and turns out really pretty with a ruffled texture.

Of course I had to use some polka dot paper for this sweet flower, right? The button and bakers twine are the cherry on top for sure. You can add this flower to cards, scrapbook layouts, banners/buntings, picture frames, wreaths, etc. This is a fun flower to embellish all kinds of crafts!


EKSuccess was kind enough to send me a bunch of great crafting tools to play with. I used the EKSuccess medium scallop punch and EKSuccess glue sticks for this craft. EKSuccess products are available at select Walmarts.

How to Make Paper Flowers

Supplies: double sided scrapbook paper, EKSuccess glue stick, EKSuccess medium scallop punch, button, glue dot, and small piece of bakers twine

how to make paper flowers

1. Using the scallop punch, punch out 15-20 scalloped circles. Tip: This is a great stash buster craft! Use those paper scraps for these flowers!

2. Using your fingers, slightly bend the scallop circles to give them a slight curve. You’ll want the right side of the paper to curve up.

3. Take one scallop circle and start glueing the others around so that they curve up.

4. Continue glueing the circles around until you like the fullness of your flower.

5. Then thread some bakers twine through the button and tie a bow. Use a glue dot or hot glue to attach the button to the center of the paper flower.

      Hi Brandi,
      I work with the different agencies that line up bloggers with brands. If you have a blog, work to grow it and once you have a good following, I’m sure companies will want to send you free things too!

    Hi love your crafts. I have a question I have a class 2x’s a week with 9-18 yr olds and teach them sewing and crafts. My supplies are limited and was wondering how you get a company like EK Success to send you items to try out. Most of the girls can not afford a big price to buy a punch or die and like I said they are expensive, but I love teaching the girls to do crafts and sew. If you would let me know it would be a great help.

      Hi AJ,
      I work through an advertising agency to be paired up with companies.

      In your situation, I’d recommend contacting company’s Public Relations department {via phone, if possibly so you can talk to a human being} and give them details and information about the group/organization you work with that provides the class for the girls. They may be willing to donate supplies to help your charity/cause. You could also try visiting your local craft store {Joanns/Michaels} and talk to the store manager so see if they could donate anything. Or even offer to take stuff that they would normally throw away. Hope that helps a little!
