DIY Paper GardeniaPaper Gardenia BouquetIt seems that every time I create a new paper flower template it becomes my new favorite. Well my dears, it has happened again. This paper gardenia 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-gift” element that I love to do when I do my own gift wrapping. These gardenias would also make a perfect Mother’s Day corsage to pin onto her (or your) top or tie at the wrist. The possibilities go on.

DIY Paper GardeniaPaper Gardenia Cake TopperFor this flower I printed a simple line template onto one of my favorite paper types, a metallic, iridescent, frosty paper, that gives such a beautiful dimension when curled and sculpted. I used text weight paper in the colors White Gold for the flower and Botanic for the leaves. You can find these at one of my favorite online shops, You can follow the tutorial below and download and print the paper gardenia template at the end of this post. UPDATE: The SVG file can be downloaded here. Enjoy! ~ Lia
