DIY Gerbera Daisy Paper Flower

Hi !, I must admit that I love flowers, their delicacy, their beauty, their colors!, each has something that makes it special, but one of my favorites is the gerbera daisy, and belive it or not,  I had never made a paper one before, so with spring approaching, I started working on these cuties. Today I’m sharing with you how to make this Gerbera Daisy Paper Flower, so you can fill your home with spring colors.

How to make this Gerbera Daisy Paper Flower?

Supplies:

  • Pink Cardstock (I used  hot pink, pink, light pink)
  • Neon green cardstock (for the center of the gerbera)
  • Hot silicone or glue
  • Scissors or Silhouette Cameo cutting machine
  • Gerbera Daisy Paper Flower pattern (GerberaDaisyPaperFlower )

Let’s do it!

To start:

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the pieces I needed, in the photo I show you how much of each one you should cut

What I love about gerberas is their colors, so I leave to your creativity whatever colors you want to use or if you want to make it in one color; for my Gerbera Daisy Paper Flower I cut the petals in hot pink, the big center in pink, and the small centers in light pink, finally the center of the flower I cut in neon green.

When you have all the pieces cut, start by folding each petal in half (tip: I was folding in groups of three)

Then with a pencil bend the tip of each petal slightly outwards.

Do the same with the center of the flowers

Take the neon green piece and fold it in half horizontally, and stick its edges

Make 3 batches with 12 petals each. Take the first batch and glue 4 petals to the circle as shown in the photo

The following petals glue them as follow

Start a second layer by gluing each petal on top of the first layer between 2 petals, but slightly more toward the center

We’re almost finished, take the neon green piece, and wrap it in itself as shown in the picture (you must go putting glue on the base to be fixed)

Take one of the long light pink pieces, and glue it around the green piece
