A bucket list item checked off today! High Five! So, to celebrate this occasion, I’m hosting a 5 Print Give-away. You can scroll down to find out all the details. I’m also sharing with you a free tag for the Sweet Bloom Flower tutorial. Cut out the free paper flower leaf printable and add it to your project for a personal touch. Scroll down to the end to find the PDF.
Thank you Brooke Walker for my first experience on the show! And next time, I’ll get that hair outta my face! I love that before the show began she referred to me as the Flower Fairy (Ferre). It warmed my heart that this Arizona desert girl, that can’t keep any plant alive, can still be a (Paper) Flower Fairy.
Scroll to the bottom of the screen for a free Free Paper Flower Leaf Printable. They are whimsical and hand-lettered! You can personalize your paper flower gifts for mother’s day, teacher appreciation or May Day posies!
To celebrate my first guest appearance on KSL’s Studio 5 with Brooke Walker today, we are hosting a Give-Away! I’m offering 5 lucky winners your choice of any 8-1/2 X 11 flower print in my Etsy shop. Follow me on Instagram and tag two friends who might like what I create here, and that’s it! I’ll post the random winner next Monday, April 25th at noon. If you are looking for the DIY tutorials on the projects shown on Studio 5 today, follow the links below!
My favorite flower crafting book review is found HERE.
Anatomy of a Paper Flower and supply resources is found HERE
The Easy Peasy 4 Petal Pom Pom Flower tutorial is found HERE (roughly a 7 minutes or less project)
The Sweet Bloom Candy Garden tutorial is found HERE (hopefully a 15-20 minute project)
The Paper Rose Heirloom Project tutorial is found HERE (it is difficult to keep this project under 60 minutes, but so worth it!)
Print the PDF off on a color print hardtack (Hammermill is the best). Then cut out the leaves, and punch the holes where there are two circles to slip the straws through. Enter the straw through the back of the leaf first. Slip a skewered flower into a stripey paper straw, and you’ve got a whimsical teacher gift, a Mother’s Day treat, or even a sweet surprise for your neighbor on May Day!
Instructions for the Free Paper Flower Leaf Printable
- Click on the below link for the PDF file, make sure to use a high quality printer
- Set the color setting to the highest density for best results.
- Print using a Hammermill Color Print cardstock (80-100 lb weight).
- Cut out the leaves, the more imperfect the leaf shape, the more whimsical it looks.
- Punch holes on the tag where there are small round open circles.
- Lastly, feed the paper straw through the back of the petal. Then push the straw to the front and then to through the back again. The leaf petal cups toward you.

Utah Art Market is currently the local show where I sell my holiday crafts.
And if you want to come check it out this weekend, it’s where I’ll be selling my prints. I stock several styles of my little celebration flags. At this show, I’ll have a very limited selection of the lovely paper roses and poppies shared on the Studio 5 segment. Come check out it out in Salt Lake, find the details below!
