If you can’t wait for April showers to bring May flowers, give Mother Nature a helping (crafty) hand by creating DIY paper flower projects. Here in the Midwest we are just starting to see hints of green push through the ground which means spring has finally sprung! Even so, it may be a few weeks until we start to see anything start to bloom and I am anxious to bring some color into our home. Plus there is that whole green thumb thing, it seems I was born without one but I do possess some mean cutting and folding skills so DIY paper flowers are well within my reach! An added bonus is paper flowers will last all season and need no watering so check out the two dozen tutorials below to get started on your own long lasting DIY floral project.
One Dozen Single Stems-Fill a vase or a basket with a single style of DIY paper flower or mix them to create a seasonal bouquet. These beautiful blooms can also be used as embellishments on presents or projects.
Paper Flower Projects-Surround yourself with beautiful blooms all year round with these floral inspired projects. Pick the flower(s) of your choice in any color for unique decorating and entertaining DIY projects…no green thumb needed!

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
