DIY Paper GardeniaGardenia Dreamin’

It seems that every time I create a new paper flower template it becomes my new favorite. With this marvelous metallic paper gardenia, it’s happened again. This flower is simply gorgeous and just in time for Mother’s Day! Even if you don’t have time to make a full bouquet, just one on top of a wrapped gift will add that “gift-on-top-of-a-gift” element that I love to do with my own gift wrapping. These gardenias also make for a perfect Mother’s Day corsage to pin onto a top or tie at the wrist. The possibilities are endless!

For this flower I printed a simple line template onto one of my favorite paper types — a metallic, iridescent frosted paper that gives such beautiful dimension when curled and sculpted. I used text weight paper in the colors White Gold and Botanic. You can find these at one of my favorite online shops, Paper Papers. Download and print our PDF or SVG files below and follow our tutorial for how to assemble. Enjoy! ~ Lia
