You had to know that when I did an April Showers project that there would be May Flowers, right? This Vellum Flower Arrangement was something that’s needed to happen for a while now–ever since we moved in December.
Previously I’d made some cute little tissue paper flowers that I really loved. They were so cute, but tissue paper flowers are no match for moving.
And while I could have just made a few more of the last kind, I wanted to try something a little different–something delicate and beautiful at the same time. I wanted to try using cut flower shapes cut with my Silhouette (affiliate link) in vellum.
I took a simple flower shape (which happens to be the FREE shape of the week until Tuesday) and did layers upon layers to get a really sweet flower that’s as delicate as my girlies.
And the process was really easy:
- Cut several pages of vellum using this cut file (makes about 3 flowers per page). Sort your flowers into groups according to size to make it easier.
- Start rolling the tips of each flower shape between your thumb and fingers to get them to curl. The more you curl, the more volume your flower will have.
- Stack your petal pieces–two flower shapes of each size for each flower and one center circle–offsetting the petals for more detail.
- Poke a hole in the center of each flower using a needle or small hole punch and insert a brad to keep everything together. Then fluff or arrange the flowers as necessary.
- For the small blooms, take a center circle and fold it in quarters.
- Hot glue your flowers and blooms onto sticks, and arrange in a vase.
Pretty simple, and yet these vellum flowers are so cute you’ll love them year round.
