An Upside-Down DIY

The cyclamen is a unique plant to craft because its flowers are upside down. Also, each flower typically has four petals up and one petal down. You can see how our designer Meagan achieved this by following the tutorial at the end of this post.

Once you’ve crafted your frosted paper cyclamen plant, you can put yours in a tiny pot like we did. Its small stature makes it a great plant to keep indoors on a kitchen counter, a desk, a shelf…really anywhere! Don’t forget to share your version of our paper cyclamen plant with us and other crafters on our Facebook page for members. Or you can always use the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
