Now that we carry cardstock in our shop, we’ve been experimenting with how to use this heavier paper to create different kinds of flowers. Last month Meagan made these beautiful jumbo daises, and now this month she is showing us how to make this cardstock paper dogwood branch.

When you’re ready to get started, check out our supplies list below. Then download the flower pattern and tutorial at the end of the post.

Barking up the right tree

This cardstock paper dogwood branch will look so lovely in your home year-round. Our tutorial will show you step by step how to create these beautiful blooms and add more detail with brushmarkers and a blender. Along with assembling the flowers, you will also learn how to build a branch using floral wire and floral tape. 

When you’re done crafting your dogwood branch, simply place it in your favorite vase. If you’d like, you can always add more flowers and branches for a fuller arrangement. We’d love to see your version so be sure to share it with us on our crafters community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
