Make these Coloring with Paper flowers to embellish your scrapbook pages and cards. The method is super relaxing and easy to do. It is also called paper piercing and everyone on HSN Craft Day is doing it. I have done so many of these I created a category under Type. Try it today!
Once you are sure you understand the basics, download the SVG File you want to make. There is no design space file for the coloring with paper flowers. The instruction sheet in the download file explains how to upload it to Design Space.
You will need:
- Black cardstock (what I use)
- Various color scraps
- Liquid glue
- Contact paper
- Download Files
The black paper that I cut the outlines from is linked in the materials list.
Cut out the various pieces from paper scraps in your scrap bin. The flowers look best with the center a different color than the petals. You can see this from the example of flower 2. Just fill them in however you want. Also try making the petals different colors as I did on flower 1. Flower 1 was cut using vellom for the inner petals Patterned paper also looks good on these flowers as shown in flower 5 and flower 1.
Cutting the Color With Paper Flowers
Cut the outline from black cardstock. Do not make the file any smaller than 2.5 inches accross or the black lines get too thin. This makes the flower a good size for cards and scrapbook pages. You will need to cut the flower once for each color in the design. You can cut multiple color flowers on the same sheet making them much easier to piece together.
Watch my video on cutting different colors on the same mat.
Assembling the Color with Paper Flowers
First, stick the outline to the contact paper and re-cover it with the protective backing paper. Make sure to place the outline right side up. If you reverse the outline you will need to reverse the paper and with patterned paper this won’t work.
Start placing the various pieces on the flowers with the tweezers.
DO NOT TOUCH THE STICKY SHEET WITH YOUR FINGERS
When all the open spaces are filled, check to make sure all the paper is secure. Press the protective sheet over everything and press sorta hard. Anything that seems loose, glue down with the liquid glue and let dry for at least 30 minutes.
Finally, with scissors cut around the outside leaving as much of the outside black line as you can.
Use the Coloring with paper flowers as you like. Here I made a simple card using several of the flowers I made. Also they make beautiful embellishments on scrapbook pages.
