Learn how to make these easy Loop Flowers in this step by step tutorial.

 

Loop Paper Flower Tutorial


 

Materials

 

You will need:

 

-Glue Dots

-Paper Strips in 3 different colors/patterns

**I used

22) 3” x ½”

22) 2 ½” x ½”

11) 2” x ½”

7) 1 ½” x ½”

-1 ¾” circular piece of chipboard or card stock

-Something for the center of the flower:

You could use brads or buttons.

 

 

 


 

Step 1

Take the largest strips of patterned paper (3” x ½”) and loop the one side over to meet the end of the other side. The ends should be touching. Do NOT fold the strip in half! Add a glue dot to the inside of the ends to keep the loop like this permanently.

 

Complete this step for all of the strips:

Step 2

Grab your chipboard or card stock circle. Using glue dots, attach 11 of the largest loops (3” x ½”) to the other edge of the circle.

Step 3

Flip the entire thing over.

Step 4

Add another layer of loops using the largest size strips (3” x ½”).  I tried to place them in the gaps created by the previous layer.

Step 5

Using the 2 ½” x ½” paper strips, add another row of loops to the flower. Once again, I added them in between the gaps of the previous layer.

Step 6

Using the same size paper loops as Step 5 (2 ½” x ½”), add another layer of paper loops to the flower. Remember to place them between the gaps of the previous layer for even placement.

Step 7

Using the 2” x ½” size paper loops, add another row to the flower.

Step 8

Using the 1 ½” x ½” paper loops, add the last layer to the flower.

Step 9

Add a center to your flower. Here I used a button with a Prima Say It in Crystals rhinestone cluster. In my reveal, I used a chipboard coaster with a jewel in the center. By layering the different materials, you have so many options.

You can change the sizes of the center and paper loops to make a larger or smaller flower. My finished flower was almost 4” in diameter. You could also create the flower with ribbon or fabric loops.

You could use epoxy shapes, chipboard, or bling. You could also layer more than one of these for an awesome look.

how fun!!!!! I would love to do this...not sure I have the patience to cut the strips of paper though. I am guessing there must be so pre-cut strips of paper that can be purchased, eh? Either way, I will probably try this, the end product is just too darn cute!!!!!!
