After seeing a post on here (and of course I can't find it now  Undecided) which led me to this site http://meholder.blogspot.com/2009/03/paper-flower-tutorial.html, I found an old anatomy drawing book and got to work. I don't have the flower punch recommended so I just did a search for "six sided flower template" and used card stock to make a tracing thing (sorry, I'm brain dead right now).

I'm definitely making a few of these... I remember seeing the half painted ones on an Alice in Wonderland collage on here! I just have to say I love how the two words that really stand out for me in the picture are "forward" and "backward"

Oh, I love this! I can see making them as teacher appreciation gifts for the word-oriented humanities teachers--with pin-backs and magnets!

Off to find the half-painted version on craftster, perhaps for the art and science teachers!

Oh, the possibilities are endless! Barrettes, pins, magnets, rings...I was also thinking of doing a sort of Frida Kahlo-inspired headband of them.

I made some from this tutorial (I put them on a steampunk themed frame) and they are shockingly easy.

I think you could definitely put a wire thru the middle of these and they would work for a bouquet. I made mine of cardstock and they are super sturdy.

I couldn't find the punch locally so I cut them out by hand. Granted I only did about 4 flowers, not a bouquets worth.

no luck at micheals (they had the right brand but don't stock, and wouldn't order the flower shape)
but we found some online and ordered one Cheesy (well... technically my dad ordered it... i don't have an e-bay account or paypal lol)

That is really lovely, and it's almost just as easy to cut them by hand, I have done that to all my roses

Whoa, this is excellent, and seems easier than the "glue some random petal shaped papers together" way I was making flowers.  Cheesy I'm definitely going to give this a try. Your sample looks so cute!

Oooh, sorry you're ill! Feel better (and crafty!) soon!

When you are up, would you share where you found your punch, brand, and how big it is, etc.? I looked at Michael's and Hobby Lobby...neither had a 5- or 6-petal punch!

I couldn't find one there either, i went with ebay. i got the Marvy Uchida brand, and i believe i got the giga (they also have it in another size, one is 3" the other is 2.5" and i think they have 2" too, I got the 3 inch one... purple (all the ones in the size are the same color)

if you look around on e-bay they have lots for similar prices as micheals/hobby lobby punches of the same size...
I paid a little more, but i picked someone with really good reviews, along with them being in the US so not near as far as some (hong kong and such)  the seller i bought from is kats_art, she was a wonderful seller, fast shipping, well packaged, and the item came exactly as described.

That is EXCELLENT advice, all round. I just added that to my post-dinner-party list of things to do. (12 people in my house for a "soul supper" of ribs, etc. tomorrow night. YEEK!)

Why delay, I thought...if I hurry and order, it can get here while I"m panicking over the dinner...so I ordered the same punch on Amazon, with free shipping (since we save up items in the cart and buy them all at once)! YAY! Thanks for your help!

Coincidentally, I was watching a video at Youtube the other day for a flower just like this one. I thought it would look good on a frame for Mother's Day...

I folded squares of paper in half & half again (small square) then folded corner to corner (triangle) and rounded the top to a teardrop shape.  This gave me an 8 petal flower.  I followed the tute but added an extra layer of petals and 2 leaves.  I watercolored all of it before the glue step and attached it to a clip which will be in my hair tonight :-)  Thanks for the link!

AmandaBL, there is a tutorial on youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spO_hR1eFso ) where it shows how to use the 8 sided flower to get a very similar look to the 6 sided one, and its pretty cool and you use 1 extra small layer... i think this is prolly how you did yours but i'm curious if it is how you did it?

I wanted a flatter flower for wearing in my hair, so on my first layer I removed no petals, just made a cut & glued the two over top of each other, next layer removed one, next layer removed two, next layer removed three.  I did the center a bit differently but basically just filled in the hole with curled petals - haha.  But as far as how she cut out the beginning, that was exactly it.

I looks like she locked down her blog to invited readers only.

There are a lot of tutorials out there that are basically the same process, just with varying styles of 6 petal flowers. If you search for something like Tim Holtz Grungepaper Roses, you should find something.

There is also this video. Disclaimer - I haven't watched it all the way thru but the first couple of minutes are headed in the right direction.
