DIY Paper Flower BackDrop | ANN LE & FrmHeadtoToe


(joyful music) – Hello how’s it going, it’s me Ann, and I’m with my beautiful friend, Jen. She has a YouTube channel that’s called from head to toe, – Hey guys! – And today we’re going to do a DIY, we’re going to make some paper flowers and over on Jen’s channel
we’re going to do a, – Baby food challenge. – I’m scared, we haven’t done that yet, so make sure you guys stay
towards the end of this video to check that out. So today we’re gonna
make some paper flowers that you can use as a
backdrop for weddings or for showers, any kind of
occasions, they’re beautiful. Alright guys, so to get
started, you’re going to need, some card stock paper, and some hot glue. We’re gonna use a hot glue gun today. – So you actually have some
versatility with the petals, depending how large or small
you want to make your flowers. So you can do a giant
petal with one large sheet, you can fold these in half to make them a little bit smaller. – [Ann] When you’re creating your petal you can cut them out to
have different curves or you can just have like, one round tear drop sized petal. But when you’re cutting it out, make the bottom a little more narrow, and the top more wide. After you cut out your petal,
cut a slit at the bottom about two inches up. So now that you have
your first petal cut out you want to use this as your template to cut out five more petals. – And for the center of
the flower you’re going to cut out a circle. So once you have all of your petals, you’re going to curl the top edge so it gives it sort of a 3D shape. – After you curve all your petals, it’s now time to glue the slit together and create a little cup like shape. – So the way you want to do this is dab a little glue onto
one side of your slit, and then you’re going
to take the other side and overlap it, and now as you see the petal
kind of like pushes it up. So it should create a little
shape, just like this. And then we’re going to
add it around this little circle base. – So for the flower petals
that we’re making right now, we’re doing a multi-layered flower. We’re doing two different sizes, this one’s a little bit bigger, so it’ll kind of have a
multi-dimensional effect. – Yes. – You can make it even more multi-layer, it just depends on how detailed you want your flower to be. – So get creative with it, I mean if you want to add more texture, then ya know, create more petals. And it will take you a little more time, but it’s probably going to be worth it. – [Jen] So as you keep
going you can continue to add more smaller petals to the inside, until it gets to the fullness and detailedness that you like. – Yep, just repeat your
steps over and over. This is looking, pretty
good so far, right Jen? I think we’re doing a great job. – It’s already so pretty! – Yeah, I love it! So, the next step is,
and the finishing step, is to add something in the center. You can have fun with this by
adding in different colors, for this I’m gonna keep it all white, now the way you can do this, is take out a full sheet of paper. You’re gonna fold it
in half, the long way, then you’re going to cut little slits, and start where it’s at the folded edge, going up toward the open end. Alright so now we have our center piece cut out and ready to go. I’m going to add a little
bit glue to the edge, you wanna just create
a little anchor piece. And then I’m gonna keep rolling it around, just like so, and once I get toward that last part, I can add some glue
again, and secure it in. Fold these little pieces out, so we can add a little glue, to this bottom now, and
attach it to the middle. Hold it for, a few seconds, so that way it can dry completely. Alright guys, so we’re all set, I think this turned out beautiful. – It’s so cute! – Right, so just imagine
making a whole wall of paper flowers, in different
sizes, different shapes, it’s just going to look
beautiful as a backdrop or as a decoration home decor, perfect for parties. – Oh yeah, for sure. – So Jen and I, we’re going to film the baby food challenge right after this, it should be really really fun. – I’m a little scared. – Yeah, yeah, so you guys, if you want to check it out, I will put the information
below this video, for when it goes live, and definitely check it out, and go over to Jen’s channel, it’s From Head to Toe. If you guys have not subscribed to Jen, she has an amazing YouTube channel where she does lots of wonderful how-to videos that are super helpful, in beauty.
