Paper flowers were made in earlier days to decorate the house when real flowers were out of season. Today, they are used to embellish scrapbook projects & greeting cards, and to make paper flower bouquet, flower arrangements etc…

It is believed that the art of making paper flowers originated in China and goes way back as 2,000 years ago soon after paper was invented. The Chinese started making paper flowers, which would float in containers of water, to be used for religious offerings, but as time evolved they were also used as a creative channel for meditation.

In the Victorian days women started making paper flower when the real flowers were out of season. They made these flowers by unravelling a real flower and drawing pictures of them on paper, which they used as a template. The stems were made with wire covered with green tissue paper, because in those days floral tape was probably not yet invented.
