Paper DahliaI will not lie, this is not the simplest flower I have made. With so many petals to cut and form, it takes some commitment, but is worth every minute when you see how gorgeous it looks complete. I will be using these finished plum blooms on my Thanksgiving table post later this week, so stay tuned on how you can make a bold statement that is sure to awe your guests. I have prepared a step-by-step tutorial for you to follow. Remember that this kind of flower does work better with a text weight rather than a card stock paper since the latter does not curl smoothly. For the flowers in these photos I have used a metallic plum text weight from called Ruby. You can find all of the tools and materials needed listed on the right hand side at the top of this post – including links to our top-match paper picks from our shop for this project.

Just follow my tutorial to make these flowers. You may even try small glue dots rather than hot glue to avoid glue strings. At the end of the post you will find the buttons for the downloads for members. Enjoy! ~ Lia
