Video tutorial to make Zinnias paper flower:

I got some requests to make zinnias paper, so I’m sharing it with you now. Zinnias are not kind of flower that you will love at the first sight, but if you will definitely love it as you have a close-up look, so brilliant.

Step by step instruction to make Zinnias paper flower:

  1. Download the template and cut out with plain printer paper and green paper
  2. Fold and cut the paper circle as video instructed. No worry if you cut the petal in different sizes, as the real petals have different sizes 🙂
  3. Make the fringed center with 2 strips 1cmx 21cm, fold and cut as an eyelash. Use glue gun to attach with the wire to make stamen.
  4. Keep the remaining of the above circles, then cut, color and glue for about 8 tiny flowers around the stamen.
  5. Color the smallest petal layer with yellow and the bigger layers with orange (you can create your own favorite color here).
  6. Shape the petals in different ways with scissor or stylus, as the video tutorial.
  7. Cut the circle petal in half and glue it around the stamen.
  8. Cut out a strip of ordinary tissue paper to make a sepal shape under the last petal layer. Around with my sepal template.
  9. Use floral tape or green paper strip to wrap the  wire
  10. Cut and use the scissors to make the leaves and finish it.

    These are absolutely PERFECT. These remind me of my childhood- the garden was always full of zinnias all summer long. My favorite. Now I can make them last forever. Thank you

    These are stunning and look sufficiently simple to make in your instructional exercise, however i don’t exactly comprehend the bordered strip in the middle and how to append the wire stem. Those parts were lost in the video.

    These are gorgeous and look easy enough to make in your tutorial, but i don’t quite understand the fringed ribbon in the center and how to attach the wire stem. Those parts were missing in the video.

      Thank you, Kathy, for stopping by. For the fringed ribbon in the center, it started in 1:14 to 1:20 in the video clip. I cut two long strips of 1cm x 21cm, fold and cut as eyelash and use the glue gun to attach to the wire. If you still have any queries, please just let me know. I will try to write down the detail instruction right now, I always ignore this step as my English is not good enough to describe it.
