Hello there We R friends! It’s Aly here with you again to finish off Flower Week with a larger-than-life party backdrop idea. Create a giant flower backdrop with the Template Studio Starter Kit, Flower Template Guide, and some Designer Poster Board!
This giant flower backdrop is perfect for a luau, summer pool party, a bridal shower, a wedding, a baby girl shower, a tea party, and more.
All you need to do is select poster board colors and/or patterns that fit with your event or theme.
To make your own giant flower backdrop, start by trimming your poster board to the size shown in the instruction manual based on the flower size you’ve selected. Then follow the directions to cut out and score your flower petals using the flower template guide.
Fold the score lines as explained in the instructions, and secure the petals with a strong adhesive. I recommend hot glue for this project, and the American Crafts Sticky Thumb Cordless Glue Gun is my favorite. No limiting cord to worry about!
This is what your flower will look like once you’ve finished. (For a video tutorial on making flowers with the Template Studio, visit our YouTube channel HERE.)
Layer multiple flowers for more dimension and color.
Then add a loop of twine to the back for hanging.
To create the flower center, cut a 12 inch long strip of paper that’s 3-4 inches wide, and cut some fringe into it.
Roll up the paper and secure it with hot glue or another strong adhesive.
Then curl back the fringe to add some dimension and texture, and then hot glue it to the center of the flower.
Make several flowers in different sizes and styles for a show-stopping backdrop for your next event!
