DIY_Paper_Dahlia_Gift_TopperFall is the time for the glorious dahlia bloom! They come in so many varieties that it is easy to choose a color or two that makes you smile. In Friday’s post I made a blush dahlia for the paper wedding bouquet. Today I made my fall dahlias from lush plums and a pop of orange. I used the metallic text weight paper (not card stock) from paper-papers.com choosing Ruby, Punch and Mandarin and Emerald for the seeded eucalyptus. Yes, these colors made me smile! This is a very simple bloom to make once you have cut all of your petals. You can download my template for these blooms and greens below and then use the step-by-step tutorial to assemble. I did use my Cricut Explore to cut all of my flowers and greenery and you can find the cut files here. These flowers are great for gift toppers, bouquets and centerpieces or even napkin rings for your Fall dinners. Enjoy! ~ Lia
