DIY Paper Ranunculus + Tutorial

DIY Paper Ranunculus Paper Ranunculus Gift Topper To start the new year of our paper flower series we will begin with the delicate ranunculus. When I had my flower shop many years ago, this was a wedding bouquet favorite. The ranunculus comes in an array of colors but my favorite was this pale peachy pink with the slight green centers. For these paper flowers I used a regular copy paper to mirror the delicate petals of the original. Just download and print the PDF template of my pink ranunculus, gather your scissors and hot glue gun and follow the tutorial below. Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. This looks beautiful. I would definitely try this sometime. :)

  2. These are amazing! You are so talented!

  3. What a fabulous tutorial on making one of the prettiest flowers in the garden. Thank you so much for this, I am pinning it straight away to the clever paper craft group.

  4. Thank you! I love your flowers and freebies.

  5. Love your flower tutorials. My daughter got married in Dec and I used your paper roses for some of her decorations. Everybody loved them. Thank you!

  6. Beautiful – as always! Can’t wait to try making some.
    Thanks, Kate

  7. amo questi ranuncoli: i miei fiori preferiti
    Grazie tanto
    sei magnifica

  8. These are beautiful! I’m having a Valentine’s Day party and the theme is pastel colors, these will fit in perfectly! I think I’m going to try to make one tonight and see how it goes, I love them!

  9. I’ve been looking for an easy paper flower like this for a long time. I’m making all the bouquets which will be all paper flowers for my daughter’s wedding this August. I do have a question though–when I print on the copy paper, one side will be white–how do I color it to match? Thank you.

    • Hi Lori. I originally made my first prototype with just the one side printed then the second with a color printed on the back side. I liked the first one better because the white on the inside of the petals gave it a luminous quality. But, it a color on the other side works best for you, just print a full bleed pink on the backs of your prints.

      • Thank you! I know what I did wrong then—I was making the flowers with the white on the outside! Will try again. Thanks so much for posting these beautiful flowers. I also look forward to seeing a wedding bouquet and how to attach these to stems.

  10. Lindo!!! obrigada por disponibilizar o passo a passo. Bjos!!!

  11. Beauitful flowers, just what I need when in middle of dark winter in Sweden. Promise of spring, thankyou.

  12. they are soooooooooooo nice

  13. They look great I love ranunculus. The colours you used makes them look almost like succulents. Two flowers for one lol xxx thankyou for the pattern

    • That was my thought exactly! I think it would look less like a succulent if they were a bright color. That will be another post. :-)

  14. Absolutely beautiful….I love all your paper flowers! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

  15. I loved these the minute i saw the tutorial and printed them out. They turned out fabulously. Thank you!

  16. They are so beautiful! Thank you!

  17. I love these flowers, lovely as usual. I was just wondering if I could use them for something else other than centerpieces or gift toppers? Say, a bouquet?

  18. такая нежность! Thank you!

  19. Hola Lia .

    Primer . Decirte que haces unos hermosos y fantasticos trabajos … adoro tu pagina Web.

    Segundo: preguntarte que clases de materiales utilizas ( quiero decir las hojas para la impresion por favor .

    Atentamente Lyju.

    • Gracias por su nota dulce. Utilizo copia simple o papel de impresión que luego imprimir el color que has preparado en pdf. Puede utilizar cualquier tipo de papel de peso ligero de cualquier color y utilizar el imprimir como una plantilla.

  20. Thank you for the wonderful tutorial and template! I can’t wait to make some ranunculus flowers.

  21. Hi just found your blog it is lovely

  22. prawdziwe piękności!!!!jestem zachwycona

  23. Do you think this could be done with crepe paper? If i made a stencil and cut it out of crepe paper? Thanks!

    • You can try. I do not use crepe paper because you can not print the paper, but there are many lovely crepe paper flowers out there and I think in the end it is easier to form. . . but I like the challenge of printer paper. :-)

  24. One of my favorite of all flowers! I’m excited to see a paper version here – thanks so much! I’ll enjoy making these :-)

  25. I made one to put on top of a gift box for a friend of mine and came out quite nice…. Not as pretty as the one on the tutorial….

  26. I love Ranunculus, and your paper version is just beautiful! Thanks for the DIY!

  27. That looks fantastic! You did a really great job. Those paper flowers looks just real – love it!

  28. I absolutely love your website. I always come away feeling inspired.
    I have made many of your flowers for gift toppers. They have always turned out great. I can’t believe what can be made by using paper! I’ve been asked many times where I got the beautiful flowers and was able to proudly say I made them… with some help from Ellinee!
    Thank you so much for not only putting these online, but making them free.
    Keep up the amazing work! I can’t wait to see what you make next!

    • This is the nicest note. I love how you are sharing your creations with your friends! This inspires me to create and share even more. :-)

  29. oooowww this is beautiful and lovely. I have seen all those flower tutes of you. It’s still amazing.
    Perhaps one day i will find the time to try one out for upon a wrapping gift or … for just making a poisy.
    thank you for all your effords and all the greate tutes you’ve made .
    And of course the sharing;XD

  30. Made this just now as the first flower in my wedding bouquet! I did a little jimmying to get it on a wire stem. The tutorial was great and easy to follow… only took me about 35-40 min from start to finish, including figuring out how to get it on the stem ;)

  31. Thank you for the AWESOME pdf! This is a beautiful flower project, I am so happy I found it on Pinterest!
