It's that time of the week again, when I get to showcase another free printable project.

With Mother's Day this weekend, I thought it was only right that I showcase an appropriate Printable project - colourful paper flowers!

I love flowers (who doesn’t??) and I’ve been dying to create my own layered paper ones to use for decoration for a while now. This is the first of many designs, so no doubt you’ll see a few flowers in this spot in the future.

You can download my colourful petal / disc designs below, and as you can see in the pictures here, I’ve added my own pieces of flare, with buttons, newspaper, and markers.

The creative power is yours with this one! Just arrange the pattern of discs that you like from the printable, then add in any elements you see fit - tissue paper, newspaper, fabric, you could even put in real leaves from the garden.

Once you've got your desired design, hold them all together and punch two holes all the way through. Then you’ll need a piece of thin wire bent in half to thread through your arrangement, keeping it all together. Once the wire is through, just twist it off and create a stem. There you have it!

You could make a whole bunch of these, altering each one slightly, or even just use it to decorate a gift.

Get creating now, by downloading this template.

I'd love you to leave a comment below, or jump on the facebook page to share your creations.
