Supplies

Tutorial

  1. Gather your supplies. When choosing paper, pick a variety of colors and patterns to add interest.
  2. Cut your banner triangles from cardstock. I love this tutorial for how to easily cut 8 triangles from 1 sheet of cardstock. Then use a hole punch to make holes for stringing. A tiny hole punch keeps the string in place on your finished flower banner.Make your own paper flower banner for spring. This fun DIY spring decor project is simple and budget friendly.

  3. Use your silhouette to cut the flowers in several colors. DXF files are easy to use. Just open your silhouette software and open the dxf file. It might need to be resized and regrouped. The rectangle around the flowers should be enlarged to fit a 12″x 12″ sheet. I made my large flowers about 3″x 3″, medium flowers 2″ x 2″. and my small flowers were 1″ x 1″. Need help using your silhouette? I have instructions here. The instructions are for using the cut and print feature, but I also walk you through using the software and how to load the mat.
  4. Carefully weed the excess paper off and remove the flowers from the mat. I found the spatula tool to be the most valuable. Make your own paper flower banner for spring.

  6. Start gluing the flowers down. A glue pen allows you to easily glue small pieces. You might need to place something heavy on each banner to hold it in place. Don’t worry, it dries quickly.Make your own paper flower banner for spring. This fun DIY spring decor project is simple and budget friendly.

  7. Once your banner is dry, it’s time to add the string. Figure out how long you want your banner and add about 18″ extra string for draping and hanging.Make your own paper flower banner for spring.

  8. Make a tiny knot at the end of the string to prevent fraying when stringing the paper banner pieces. I prefer to string mine with the string behind each triangle. Once the banner is strung, don’t worry about getting the placement of each triangle correct. It’s easier to adjust it once it’s hung. Make your own paper flower banner for spring.
