What kind of paper do you use for rolled paper flowers?
Best Cardstock for Paper Flowers My favorite type of paper to use for these rolled paper flowers is 65 lb cardstock. It’s sturdy enough that it won’t rip, but it’s still flexible enough to make pretty flower petals. You can find suitable cardstock in 8.5″ by 11″ size sheets or 12″ by 12″ size sheets. 5

How do you seal paper flowers?
Spray the assembled paper flower with a finishing spray to seal it. You can also use a UV protector spray, which also seals the paper while preventing the colour from fading.
What is the best paper weight for paper flowers?
I almost always use either 50 or 65-pound weight cardstock. At times I have gone up to 80 pound but never any higher than that because it becomes too difficult to get a smooth curl to your petals at a certain thickness.
How do you make a good bouquet?
The Bouqs’ Tips:
- As a rule, make your bouquet about one and a half times taller than its container.
- Remove any thorns or leaves from flowers.
- To help roses open more quickly, blow into the center of the bud.
- Keep flowers away from sunlight and heating vents.
- Recut the stems and add water daily.

You can for sure make gorgeous mini bouquets with just filler flowers alone! Bunch a few of your flowers together, cut them down to desired mini length, and tie them all together with a rubber band or floral tape. Cut a square piece of tissue paper and place the mini bouquet at one corner of the tissue paper.
How do you make fake flower bouquets at home?
Cut leaves off of the stem on the lower 2/3 of the stems leaving leaves near the blooms. Use 3 stems of flowers as your “base” and add stems to this focal point. Use your ribbon to secure your bouquet. Once you’ve created a bunch of flowers, use some greenery and/or leaves to fill out your bouquet.
How do you harden fake flowers?
Hold the fake flower upside down by the stem. Spray the stiffening spray, extra-hold hairspray or the spray starch over the underside of the silk petals to saturate them evenly. Arrange the petals while they are still wet. Turn the blow-dryer to low and direct warm air onto the fake flower to dry the fabric gently.
