For this frosted paper lotus flower, we used Paper Papers metallic text weight paper. We are absolutely in love with this paper for floral paper crafting! It’s offers the perfect thickness to remain firm yet malleable and just enough sheen to add the perfect touch of shimmer — so much more to offer than most cardstocks. We also used one of Paper Papers French Pop Tones because it has a beautiful hue that complements so many of our projects. To discover your own perfect shade, browse Paper Papers wide selection here.

Spray the petals with matte finish to seal in Pan Pastels. Let dry. Repeat steps 3-6 to the other side of the petals.
Glue and overlap the two flaps.
Use a curling tool or run paper along the edge of a table to make the petals into a C shape.
Glue 5 of the same size petals together creating three different layers.
Glue three layers together making sure to stagger petals.
Roll and glue two fringe pieces.
Ruffle the top of the yellow center, then glue to the center of the flower.
