About This Class

In this class, we'll create a 3-dimensional paper bloom using simple cuts of card stock paper glued on end to form a blossoming flower. Once you've finished this class you'll be able to re-create this flower over and over, and try your own endless variations with different cuts or shapes.

You can create the basic shapes we'll be using three ways : By printing the class PDF and tracing the figures onto your paper (if using a thinner paper), you can also cut the shapes out from the template and use them as a stencil to cut around or you can draw your own similar shapes to duplicate as seen in the second video.

When you've finished one project you can print the template as many times as you'd like and use it as a base for bigger, bolder paper crafts too.This class is a fun introduction into paper craft and you won't need anything but paper, scissors, glue and tweezers are helpful!

*one-hand finger-waves*

I'm Ashley,

D.C. area paper graphics artist still completely astonished that people buy these paper thingies I make. Pink is my fave although I'm becoming partial to this cosmic combination of purple and Caribbean blue I've been working with lately.

You can find more of my work at or witness the colorful tornado that is the behind-the-scenes of PaperLiberated on Instagram.
