DIY Paper Brooch


X-acto knife or small pair of scissors
glue dots (I use Zots in the small size)
puffy paint
a small, soft bristle paintbrush


1. Cut out flower petal and stem templates. Fold each petal template in half to make a crease through the center of the petals. Unfold and fold in half the opposite way to crease the remaining petals. Unfold and turn over one petal (this will become the top petal), placing a glue dot in the center.

2. Rotate the top petal, glue dot side down, at a 45 degree angle to the bottom petal and firmly press the two together.

3. Attach the stem to the back of the petals using glue dots or a small piece of tape.

4. Place a small dot of puffy paint in the center of the top petal and immediately sprinkle glitter over top. Allow to dry overnight. When the paint is completely dry, brush stray glitter from the petals using a soft bristle paintbrush. Attach to favor boxes using glue dots or double stick tape.
