These paper asters are a brand-new flower for us! Similar to daisies, aster flowers have long, narrow, and pointed petals. But unlike the daisies we have made, these paper asters have even thinner petals.
We will show you how to make these flowers step by step in our tutorial, which you can find at the end of this post. Also, make sure to check out our tips below before getting started!
These dainty flowers are so cute and cheerful. To make our potted paper asters look more realistic, Meagan included tiny buds in her arrangement that look like they are on the verge of blooming. Using frosted paper also gives them a bit more depth as well as a more structural look. While we made our paper asters using a white shade from our Succulent pack, you could also use one of the purples from our Berry pack.
We hope you enjoy these new flowers and share your versions with us by tagging #MadeWithLia!
Because the pieces are so small and delicate for this flower pattern, we recommend using a cutting machine. Before cutting a whole sheet of paper, make sure to test cut the detailed pieces on your cutting machine to get the perfect setting. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can always use detailed scissors to cut out our PDF pattern.
Also, if you’re a beginner, you may want to focus on flowers with bigger petals (or try a daisy!) since working with tiny pieces can be tricky at first. Alternatively, you could also resize this aster pattern to be larger.
