Posted on May 24 2020

Rinea Jumbo Spring Flowers with Roni Johnson
Spring has arrived and it's time to shake off the cabin fever of recent weeks and brighten up our lives a bit. These jumbo spring flowers are just the ticket to do so. These flowers are quick and easy to make and are a real pick-me-up.
Let's begin...
I will give you the measurements to make a small, medium and large bloom.

Step 1 - Cut the following for each flower:
Small - 8 (eight) - 6" x 8" pieces of Blush/Blush Starstruck
Medium - 8 (eight) - 6"x 10" pieces of Lavender/Lavender Starstruck
Large - 10 (ten) - 6" x 12" pieces of Blush/Blush Starstruck
Step 2 - Fold each sheet in half length wise so you have a 3" wide piece of foiled paper.

Step 3 - Use a scrap piece of paper and cut a curved design for the petal tip cutting guide.
Step 4 - Place the guide over each folded piece of foiled paper and cut away the excess.

Step 5 - Gently open up the flat ends of the petal so they meet near the corner fold and pinch together.

Step 6 - Staple the folded edges together to help hold the petal shape.

Step 7 - Repeat steps 5 & 6 until all of the petals have been created.

Step 8 - Staple two petals together. 
Note - to help hold the petals together I placed a glue dot where the curve of the petals touched in the center.

Step 9 - Now staple two of the double petals together for a grouping of 4 petals. You will have two sets of these 4 petal groupings per bloom.
Note - If you are making the Large flowers you will have 2 sets of 5 petals.

Step 11 - Hand or die cut centers for each flower. For this example I used Arctic/Arctic Starstruck foiled paper. You may choose to leave the center as is or embellish it in some way.
