Video: Paper Flowers and Flower Light Strings

Paper Flower Light Strings

I found this great EK Tools 3D flower paper punch at Michael’s and just had to feed my paper flower addiction.  The punch is super easy and fun to use.  You will see in the video tutorial below, straight out of the package, you will be making gorgeous flowers.  This is a great alternative to investing in a die cut machine, if you just want to get a taste.

All you need is the punch, a bamboo skewer, scrapbook paper 12×12 sheets and glue. When you are finished with the flowers, you can use them several different ways.  I dipped my flowers in Outdoor Mod Podge, then used an LED battery operated string of lights to make flower string lights.  The Mod Podge step is not necessary unless you need them sealed.  My next plan is to use coordinating papers and make a bouquet.

What do you do with your paper flowers?




  1. Wow, those are so pretty! The fun will never stop with that punch. I am think of all the other things you could make as well. I absolutely love your lights. Perfect for summer parties!
