Our paper dogwood branch is as pretty as the real deal, with soft pink tones and delicately curled petals. Using a selection of text weight papers, a couple markers and our printable pattern, you can achieve this perfect spring bloom project in an afternoon.

Our top tip for creating gorgeously delicate paper blooms is to gently curl the edges of the petals before you assemble the bloom. Use your scissors, a pencil or wooden dowel to curl the rounded edges of each petal outwards. This creates a depth and dimension that brings each of these paper flowers to life. Similarly, you can add ‘life’ to the paper leaves by scoring a line down the middle and smaller lines from the center line out to the edge of each leaf using your scissors.
