Video tutorial to make paper Lily flower:

Step by step instruction to make paper Lily flower:

Step 1: Download and cut the paper with my template.

There’s a detail instruction in the template, too.

Step 2:  Make the stamen

Use the facial tissue stripe to wrap around the head of wire gauge 26 to make the anther.

Color with a mix of red and brown. We need 5 anthers.

I used masking tape to make the stigma, but now I think that keep using facial tissue to form the head is much easier. Color it with lime green.

Use floral tape to wrap all the stigma and anthers together.

Step 3: Make the petals from printer paper.

Cut, glue, and color the petal as in the video instruction.

Use the round ball stylus and a toothpick to shape the petals.

Step 4: Glue the petals with the stamen.

Glue 3 smaller petals first, then 3 bigger petals outside.

Step 5: Wrap the flower with wire gauge #20 by floral tape

Cut the leaves from green color paper and insert the leaves while wrapping here.

Arrange your flowers with your own styles.
