paper orchids


originally i was going to use the printable orchids from elliee but as i needed to make so many i didn't want to waste my printer ink and they were not the right colour. so i decided to make my own, i used the petal shape she has and then cut it out on to white card and used water colour paints to get the colour i wanted.
i changed the middle part of the orchid to the one she has on her printable  as i wanted it to be more 3d looking
i painted it pink and then added some red and white, then i folded the slits behind and glued it like the photo

check out ellinee's paper orchids printable here, you can print a pink or white one,

  2. These are lovely! I just might make some for wall decor in my baby's room. Orchids grow wild here in Costa Rica and make gorgeous houseplants too. Thanks for the DIY how to.
