DIY Rolled Paper Flowers Shadow Box
Happy February everyone! It’s the month of love! Have you started planning for Valentines Day yet? I have! I love decorating my home for every holiday, and we all know crafting is near and dear to my heart. Recently I made this (in my opinion) super cute DIY Rolled Paper Flowers Shadow Box which is currently hanging on my wall! This craft is simple to make, and can be customized so many different ways by simply using different colors/patterns of cardstock! Would you like to learn how to make it? Let’s check it out!
Here is how to make my DIY Rolled Paper Flowers Shadow Box:
You Will Need:
- A Shadow Box! (I used an 8×8)
- Cardstock of your choice
- Hot Glue
- Optional: Vinyl or any other decorations for the front of your box, although it looks just as beautiful without it!
Ok now that you have gathered your supplies, let’s get started!
Step 1: First pick out the cardstock you want to use. Make sure to use complimenting colors. Now there are a couple of ways you can get the shaped needed to make your paper flowers. The first thing you can do is buy a file if you have a paper cutting machine. That is what I did. But fear not! If you don’t have a paper cutting machine you can still make these! Take a marker and draw a spiral on your cardstock. Now cut out the spiral. Easy peasy!
Step 2: Now it’s time to assemble your flower. Make sure your hot glue gun is heated up! To make your rolled flower, you will start on the outside and tightly roll from the outside in. Once you have your flower rolled up, let off the pressure a bit until your flower unrolls in to your desired shape.
Step 3: Using a dab of hot glue (be careful, as these are pretty small so there is an increased chance of burning your fingers) glue your flower together at the seam so it will not unravel when you let go of it.
Step 4: Once you have your paper flowers assembled place them facedown on the glass of your shadow box. (Note, how many flowers you have to make will depend on the size you make your flowers, and the size of your shadow box. I used about 40 small flowers). Place the back on your shadow box and secure!
Step 5: This is optional, but if you have a cutting machine, your could cut out a cute saying like I did above for the front of your new DIY Rolled Paper Shadow Box for a little extra something!
See? A few simple steps and a little time and you have a beautiful display for Valentines Day and beyond!
