Whether you are making floral letters for weddings or
a party centerpiece, making them with paper flowers is the way to go. They last forever and can be made way ahead of time.
I find the rolled paper flowers to be the best flower for this project because they are easy to cut and fast to roll. When you have to make a bunch of them in different sizes, efficient paper flower making will save you a lot of time.
I have made free templates for both flowers. Get your free templates and tutorials starting with these rolled paper flowers sent to your inbox:
Tutorial for Paper Flower Letters
Step 1: Make the Letter
I just drew my letter by hand. It doesn’t have to be perfect because the flowers will cover most of it. But if you want more guidance, I find the Arial font to be best as a simple template. Just print a really large version of the letter.
Step 2: Make your flowers in 2 sizes
This will help you estimate how many you need. I just draw circles with a pencil around where each will be placed.
Step 3: Make the rest of your flowers
Step 4: Assemble with tape or glue
Quick note on the base for the floral letter:

There are many options for how to present the floral letter. I like using just a cardboard cutout and leaning it against something.
A shadow box also works great. I love this rustic shadow box from Amazon for a farmhouse feel.
