Large Accordion Paper Flowers

Yesterday I shared with you the decorations for my daughters Scrapbooking themed birthday party. Today, I wanted to share with you a tutorial for creating those large accordion paper flowers. To make one 12 inch flower you'll need 2 pieces of 12x12 patterned paper, a glue gun , some adhesive , a paper trimmer , and a Scor-Pal .

  1.  cut 2 pieces of 12x12 paper in half so I had 4 pieces of paper measuring 6x12
  2. score all 4 pieces of paper at 1 inch
  3. accordion fold all 4 pieces of paper
  4. attach all 4 pieces of paper end to end to create a long strip
  5. attach the ends of the strip to create a circle
  6. push the circle down in the center and hold it tightly
  7. use a hot glue gun to adhere a piece of scrap paper to the back side of the flower to hold it all together
These large accordion paper flowers are so easy and fun to create. I can't wait to see what you will create with them.
