DIY: Easy Paper Punch Flowers

May 2, 2013

Easy Paper Punch Flowers | Damask Love BlogThere are a million tutorials out there on how to create paper flowers.

Welcome to tutorial #1,000,001.

I promise to make it worth your while.

All the flowers in today’s post can be created with paper punches, which you may just own – and if you don’t, just come over to my house. I’ll  be starring in the pilot episode of Paper Punch Hoarders…yeah…that’s how many paper punches I’ve got up in here. Not normal.

By using paper punches, these flowers are easy and doable, without a bunch of specialized equipment. They are also easy to mass produce since you don’t have to spend your life cranking a die-cutting machine.

Mmkay. Nuff talking. Time for flowers!

    I love the ideas and the photo tutorial is very comprehensive and clear. Love it, thank you for another lovely idea!

  2. Truly fabulous! I love visiting here. I always am inspired and learn something. Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. This is a fabulous tutorial! The way you listed everything step-by-step I might even be able to make these pretty flowers. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  4. Great tutorial! You explain everything so clearly. Will be making some of these for sure. Love the anemone and the daisy.

  5. I only wish I could see your punch collection. I’m loving the peony, zinnia and ranunculus. You’re right – GREAT Tutorial (as always).

  6. Very nice! Love them all, though am particularly partial to the light pink one. Thanks so much for the great tutorial.

  7. Just picturing you starring in a show about hoarding punches…too funny!
    Thanks so much for the tutorial…I didn’t realize that I already have everything I need 🙂

  8. How generous of you to share all this great information! Thank you!
    – from a fellow punch-hoarder! (Truly- an all raft supply hoarder!)

  9. This is absolutely awesome and I’m tickled pink that you shared it with us!

    THANK YOU Amber!!

    PS: I also love the video and cards you created to share in the HIS and HERS class!! Fantastic and a big hit!

  10. This post is a ‘must keep’, I’m sure I’ll be making your flowers over and over. TFS your creativity and talents.

    1. I purchase my paper from several sources – one of my favorites is Paper Presentation. They have a huge collection of cardstock colors and weights. For these flowers, 80lb works nicely. Any heavier and it become difficult to manipulate the paper. HTH!

  11. This was so easy to learn and very beautiful. You should consider making a book about how to craft different paper flowers. Hope you share more in the future.

  12. Gorgeous! I love the fact that you created these based on real flowers, and not simply generic “flowers.” I think sometimes we lose touch with how beautiful real flowers are. These are a refreshing interpretation of “reality.” Nice clear tutorial. Also, I don’t think having a good supply of tools can be called hoarding. Really. Not when you create works of art as beautiful as these.

  13. I love making paper flowers. All your tips and methods to create them are fantastic. Thousands of thanks for this tutoring.

  14. wooow this is lovely and pretty, and so smart to use those tools. I never had thought of that.
    But those tools aren’t made for me, they always break after a week.LOL I think it’s my not so handy movements in my hands.
    so i think i can make them as well with a siccors.
    Thank you for the sharing and the great tutes. I’m greatful.
    Have a fun happy crafting weekend and enjoy your flowers;-D
    I will.XD

  15. Just when I decided to do Christmas in July projects
    I spotted these beautiful flowers. Definitely
    Going into my idea drawer, on my Craft Cabinet APP!
    Absolutely beautiful !

  16. You are TOO CUTE & SASSY!!!!! I just stumbled upon your blog when I pinned your tutorial on punching flowers! What a delight! You are too cool! And talented! I love your blog, down to earth tips, and creativity! I may have to order your “calendar” stamps just because of your video! I don’t normally post comments, but had to compliment you! A very welcoming & creative site! Thank you! Amy

    1. Well are you just too fun & sweet! Thanks for taking the time to write out this comment. I’m so happy you are enjoying your time on the blog and I hope you’ll keep on coming back!

  17. Thanks so much! This is very helpful and gives so many options. Who knew my collection of circle punches had all those flowers inside??? 🙂

  18. These flowers are wonderful! I came here from Paper Crafts Connection and want to say thank you for sharing all these wonderful steps! I also find that wetting the paper or card stock makes it quite strong when it dries. I, too, have LOTS of punches – wonderful tools huh? Thank you so much!

  19. I absolutely Love your flowers, they are beautiful. I also have punches and.I am definitely going to make these. Thank you very much for the stunning tutorial, Jeanette Land

    1. My favorite flower is the rose. I would name this project “Flower Garden Door Hanging”. I am goinf to make one and give it to friends. I also think it would look great as a wall hanging.

  20. Of the pictured flowers I would say the daisy are my fav. As for my favorite flower it would be a plumira. They are very elegant and smell amazing. Always remind me of Maui…

  21. I am interested in decorating my home with crafts. So I will read all the blogs related to crafts and try them. For decorating my baby bedroom I ordered some interesting toys and crafts from and

    Thanks for the blog which gave me a chance to gather some self prepared crafts.
