Tropical Paper Flowers


Tropical craft projects can transport you to another time and place, no matter the weather outside. Create a bouquet of Tropical Paper Flowers and brighten up your space. You don't have to spend a fortune on these florals and there's no need for water.



  • Card stock in bright colors (orange, red, bright green, turquoise, yellow)
  • Scrapbook paper in colors that compliment card stock colors
  • Flower pattern
  • 5 green pipe cleaners (1 per flower)
  • 15 pony beads (3 per flower)
  • 5 yellow pipe cleaners, (1 per flower) cut into thirds
  • Glue stick
  • Glue dots
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pattern


  1. Print out pattern. Use the larger template to cut out card stock pieces. Use the smaller template to cut out scrapbook paper pieces.

  2. Use glue stick to attach the small scrapbook paper flower to the larger card stock flower.

  3. Roll the flower up tight, spread the top out as if you were forming a cone shape. Seal cone shape with a glue dot. Wrap each flower petal around a paintbrush or a pen to curl them.

  4. Thread a pony bead onto a one of the short yellow pipe cleaners and bend at the top to close it around the bead. Repeat this for a total of three. Wrap the ends together with the end of a green pipe cleaner to attach them all together. Poke the end of the green pipe cleaner down into the center of the flower. Hot glue in place.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is good timing as I was looking for a flower making the project that would be easy to do with kids but could also be stylised for adults. I can see making many flowers out of handmade papers and even stiff fabrics. Have you ever made these flowers from other materials than paper?

Very pretty flowers but for me this project is spoiled by the constant pop up adverts that appear at the bottom of EVERY picture. Even when you close the strip it just appears on the next, and the next, and the next photo. Totally spoils the project for me. Surely if you close it once that should be enough.

Gorgeous, so eye catching!
