Kirby-Jay Conyette is back in the Wrappily studio to bring these spring floral designs to life! Her larger-than-life floral backdrops and installations make a frequent appearance on our vision boards. Follow her instagram for more inspiring art @ikamcreate. Kirby-Jay has been working with Wrappily to develop a series of spring paper flower tutorials that provide super easy to follow instructions. In all, there are two flower styles, plus an ensemble wreath project.
The trick to making these paper flowers uniform and picture perfect every time is creating stencils for your base shapes. Download and print this template. Trace the shapes on to heavy-weight card stock paper and cut out 3 stencils.
We are going for big blooms! This may feel like a lot of petals and cutting, but HOT TIP: layer the paper to cut as many as 5-10 petals at a time.
With the Wrappily paper, cut and crease:
With the solid-color paper, cut:

There are so many great ways to use these beautiful paper flowers! Mix and match with the Daisy Style Paper Flower to create a wreath or bouquet! We want to see your Paper Flower Projects - share your #WrapHappy photos with us @wrappily.
"I am Kirby-Jay, an industrial engineer-gone-rogue and the silk and paper florist behind @ikamCreate. I design colossal 3D floral installations for all occasions— weddings, baby showers, corporate events and more. This year I opened an Etsy shop, so that I can offer petite floral wall art and fun DIY paper crafting activity kits. Check out my latest creations and services!
I started ikamCreate in California in 2015 as an illustration service, but have since transitioned to dreamy, larger-than-life handcrafted floral structures. I LOVE what I do because, through my work, I get to be part of your precious moments and fabulous celebrations! It also allows me to connect with some amazingly talented creatives who constantly inspire me."
