DIY – Paper Gerbera Daisies

Blog thumbnail - DIY Paper Flowers

It is probably typical of a lot of girls, but my Instagram is mainly pictures or kids, flowers and soups. Kiddos are the highlight of my everyday life, no wonder they are the main subject of my photos. Soup is part of my heritage, it is what I grew up with, it’s what makes me feel good and safe and home (yes, soup does that to me!) And flowers is my other favourite. All flowers photograph beautifully. It is almost impossible to take a bad photo of flowers.

I stumbled across a wonderful website by Lia Griffith, where she describes in great detail how to make all sorts of beautiful flowers, bouquets, wreaths and other paper crafts. She also provides templates, or at the very least, she provides links to other sites’ tutorials.

Sure enough she has a special magic cutter that cuts the shapes out for her from templates, but if you are like me and don’t mind putting in some work, you can do it without the magic cutter. You may have an advantage if you have a minion.

I’ve only had enough patience for five gerberas, but they are just so cute!SAM_8410

Here is the pictorial found at liagriffith.com. There is no need to create my own tutorial as I haven’t changed anything from Lia’s tute. Here it is (or click on the tutorail to be redirected to her site).5bc3548ce27ac0ae846ac67f9a19b6df

This was one awesome craft, just beautiful, and you berely need anything (maybe just a minion).
