Templates of paper flowers: types
Paper Flower Templates are easy to make according to the available templates. They draw them either on their own, or use the samples presented on the Internet. One of the popular templates is located in the photo below. The flower is made of double-sided colored paper along the contours. As you can see in the sample, each element is smaller than the previous one.
Varieties of templates
Paper cut flower templates can depict whole layers of a flower of various shapes or separately drawn petals. They can have a pointed or rounded shape, the ends of each petal appear in accordance with the natural configuration of the elements. For a carnation, you will have to make triangular cuts on each part, for a rose, on the contrary, round the edges, for a chrysanthemum, draw elongated patterns.
The cut petals are glued around the central point like the rays of the sun. In the middle, they can be located side by side, or you can leave a small hole, which is subsequently filled with the made central part of the flower.
Large single petal rose
Paper flowers beloved by women (step-by-step instructions will help you make them yourself) are collected from separately cut petals. The contours of the templates resemble a drop. On one side (outer), the petals are drawn round, and the other is a pointed corner, in which the extreme part is cut off.
Depending on the size of the flower, the number of layers of crafts is planned. Since the rose is a rather lush flower, you need to place individual elements at a close distance from one another, then, in order to reach the core, you will have to attach a lot of details.
Rose by pattern
The first outer layer is represented by the largest petals, which are glued onto a smaller circle of cardboard. This is done so that it does not peek out from behind the edges of the craft. The color is selected appropriate. If there is no way to pick up cardboard of this shade, then it does not matter, you can always simply paste over the circle with colored paper.
Each next layer consists of smaller petals, which are located with a shift to the middle of the previous one. The middle is done in a different way. A thin strip of paper is cut out, and one side of it is cut into small "noodles". Then the workpiece is wound around the toothpick with an even part, and the edge is glued with PVA. Next, glue is smeared on the end part, after which the middle part is pressed into the center of the flower.
Volumetric origami paper flowers are made from several colors. It is necessary to cut a lot of blanks so that the spikelets are long. They are attached to a twisted stick of green colored paper.
