Hello, my name is Marianne, and I am a paper craft addict. Whether it’s colorful paper flower wreaths or a 3-dimensional cloud mobile, there is something so satisfying about taking an inexpensive stack of paper and turning it into a show stopping craft. With that confession out of the way, let’s get to this week’s project because y’all? It’s one of my favorites. Just one of these giant paper dahlias would make an elegant wreath on your front door, but the real impact comes from grouping several of them together.

Doesn’t that make you want to bust out the paper cutter? These abundant paper flowers would also make great decorations for an early fall wedding or even adorning the walls of a dorm room. The possibilities are endless!
