I made a calla lily a while back which was a bit underwhelming because it only required 1 piece. I thought I would challenge myself a little more with a full-on lily design this time around.
I’m a huge fan of my semi-rolled paper flower technique. Not only is it faster to make flowers this way, I think it makes it more symmetrical.

Recommended Materials for Paper Lilies
Cardstock – I like to use medium weight cardstock with a colored core. It flexes easily and doesn’t have white frayed edges.

Tutorial for Making Paper Lily
Step 1: Cut out all the pieces from the template
Step 2: Glue the petals pieces into a circle. I included a glue tab in the templates set. Optional step to curl the petals outwards.
Step 3: Glue the smaller loop on top of the bigger loop. Then glue the rolled up stamen piece to the center.
Step 4: I’ve included a base leaf loop that I use for all my bouquet flowers. This step is optional.
