Paper Lotus Wall Art!

Lately, paper crafts have been my go-to party decorations – they are easy, quick and inexpensive too. I did couple of projects on paper flowers and I love how elegant and real they look, if done well.
img_5920One such project is these paper lotus using cardstock from Michaels, I like using a gradient to create these, but of course you can use whatever colors you’d like.

img_5923So, I started with a free tear drop template and resized to 89% while printing. That is the largest size of the petal and the rest 3 sizes were 80%, 69% and 50% respectively.

It took me couple of trails to get the right size – you can vary the sizes too, based on how big you like your flowers and how you’d like to decorate. Once you have the size trace the petals on to a cardstock and gather the pieces and a glue stick.

Let’s start assembling the flower. 

The flower is made by gathering the petals upside down. Start with the largest teardrop at the bottom and glue the next size petal on top and so on until you finish all the petals.

Turn the flower right side up and you have a pretty lotus ready to use.

img_5890To complete the look I added a small circle at the center with some leftover golden cardstock from my previous projects.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
