We created this paper flower bouquet as an easy craft to celebrate moms and grandmas on Mother’s Day. But it really can be used for any special occasion like a birthday of someone important in your kid’s life, an aunt or a teacher.
The paper flower bouquet is a nice addition to our flower craft collection. Throughout the years we have created quite a few flowers, from this beautiful footprint flower card to this popular handprint flower bouquet.
While I created a template to go along with this craft, you don’t really need it. Each flower is made up from three circles. You can use a black marker to make a different pattern on each circle and give the flower an unique look.
If you decide to use our template, you can choose any three colors for the flowers. The same goes for the vase. We made ours gray as it’s a neutral color and we wanted a color that doesn’t distract your attention away from the beautiful flowers.
You can write a little message next to the vase or to the back of the white paper. This way kids can make the craft more personal for mom or grandma. If they are too young to write, they can just write their names.

How to make the paper flower bouquet craft
Start by printing the leaves and stems on green paper, the vase on gray paper and the three circles that form the flowers on three different colors of your choice.
Each flower is made up of three circles: one big, one medium and one small.
Glue the three circles one on top of the other, starting with the smallest one.
Glue the three flower stems to the back of the vase.
Add the vase at the bottom of the white cardstock paper.
Glue the leaves onto the stems.
Add the flowers at the end of the stems.
