If you love paper flowers, then this is the exact place you need to be! Here you can find some of the best paper flowers templates and crafts taught by real professional artists and papercrafters!
This amazing Paper Peony was created by DreamyPosy for Heart Handmade UK. The best part about this paper peony tutorial is the fact that it’s made out of printer paper! You can click here and stock up. I must mention that you do need some chalk pastels for this tutorial. This cheap stuff has loads of 5* reviews and still works great to get started.
You will find this tutorial in the Craft Cafe, the free magazine that is available right here. I loved this tutorial because you can use coffee filters to make a gorgeous peony or ranunculus. Stock up on coffee filters (they have to be like these and NOT these ones, or it won’t look like a flower) and a watercolour set and away you go.

I adore wisteria and love how the Leanne over at Sizzix has created this paper wisteria with her Big Shot machine! I’ve made paper wisteria before but not using this technique. I ended up using long strips of pale purple tissue paper that I dipped in ink. It ended up looking rather lovely!
