Project #136: DIY paper flower magnet


DIY paper flower magnet by Véronique from Pichouline

I love flowers….now you can use them to hang up your favourite pictures.

what you’ll need:
* paper
* scissors / punch
* cord
* glue / double-sided tape
* beads
* magnets
* water colours / brush


Step 1 – flower:
Print out the template of the flowers here.

Or you can make your own design, reduce each size of your flower.

Cut out.

Step 2:
Splatter some water colour on it, let dry.

Step 3 – leaves:
Punch out a star or draw it yourself and cut out. Make sure the star is a little bit bigger than your biggest flower.

Step 4:
Make a whole in the middle of your flowers and star.


Step 5:
Start beading and make a knot on the two sides of your bead so it looks like a stamen. Bead the flowers starting with the smallest and end with the star (leaves).

Make a knot at the back, if you want you can seal the flowers by gluing them a little bit in the middle, twist the flowers.

Bend the leaves of the flowers starting with the biggest up to the smallest, so you get a “3D”flower.

Step 6:
Glue the magnet on the back of your flower.

Because I don’t have anything magnetic in our interior, I used the screws in our wall to cover with the flower magnet and to hang up our favourite pictures.

Of course you can use the paper flower, without the magnet, to glue on your wrapping paper, use as table decoration, napkin ring, garland…..Enjoy!
