Easy Peasy Paper Orchid

Phalaenopsis orchids come in many different colors and patterns, leaving a lot of room for creativity. Since we have made purple and white orchids before using solid colors, we decided to do a blend of pinks and purples for our paper Phalaenopsis orchid. We also wanted to vary the color within our petals, which is why we designed a watercolor wash.

We chose a frosted pink paper for this flower, but you can always try out a different paper color with our watercolor wash. Frosted paper on its own will give your flowers some depth and dimension. So the watercolor look is just another way to make your flowers stand out.

When you’re ready to craft your paper Phalaenopsis orchid, just follow the tutorial below. This flower is very easy to make and will look so pretty in your home. Since they’re popular houseplants, you could also craft one to give as a gift.

Once you’re finished crafting, we’d love to see your version of this orchid! Share it on our Facebook page for members. Or tag #MadeWithLia if you share pictures on your own social pages. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
