Paper flowers send us giddy with excitement. We get a kick every time we come up with a new design and todays paper magnolia flower is no exception. Magnolia flowers are large yet elegant blooms and as such, are fun to make in paper. Each color has a different meaning – our white magnolia symbolizes purity and perfection, like snow on a winters day! To make this pretty paper flower you will need text weight papers in white, gold and green (you can shop this project below!), floral stem wire and our downloadable pattern below. You can use the SVG file to cut this pattern if you have a cutting machine, or you can download the PDF template if you will be cutting the pattern by hand.
Once all the pieces of the pattern are cut, you can follow our step-by-step tutorial below to make your paper flowers. My top tip for making really beautiful paper flowers, as always, is to gently curl the petals before you assemble the bloom. You can use your scissors or a wooden dowel to do this and if you’d like to see the technique in action, you can watch my video tutorial for my paper rose.
There is one thing we love more than sharing our DIY designs, and that is seeing our designs out there in the world. If you make any of our paper flowers, we’d love you to share your images with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DIYDreamingWithLia. We can’t wait to see what you have made! See you there! ~ Lia
