Girl Scout Flowers

Here is the blog that I found the tutorial and template for these flowers to download and use on your own paper. Below is the template over vintage Girl Scout handbook pages. For the leaves, I traced the template onto pearl scrapbook paper. For the bottom of the leaves, I stained using coffee and a bristly paintbrush. Perfect for Girl Scout Week, bridging, appreciation and recognition gifts and events! Happy Birthday Girl Scouts!

Happy one week of ornaments! Today is one of my favorites and so easy. The cutting is the only tedious part so put on a movie if you are making a bunch! You can Google or YouTube how to make these and for free templates. I’m sure missing my printer right now, I had to trace off of my laptop – it’s a touch screen so tracing was… touchy. Ha.

This is the template I found on Google and Pinterest. I wasn’t able to find the original and the logo is a little fuzzy. Let me know if you know the original author!

It helps to print your template on cardstock then use that to trace onto paper.

Cut out.

Fold centers. The smallest ones you can just push an edge or your nail in the center.

Put a dab of glue in the center of the largest one and place the 2nd largest on top so it’s fanned between petals.

Keep gluing and placing leaves on from largest to smallest and rotating so it’s fanned out. You can curl the tips a little down if you want to fluff it up a little more as well. 

And there you have it! Make 1 or 100! Last year, I made a wreath for my office with logo paper I made.
