Step-by-step Instruction to make a Paper lotus
1. Make the Lotus Stigma
Begin by cutting a Yellow strip of approx 1.5cm in width. Then, make slits at regular intervals of 2 mm. Afterwards, roll the strip and glue it. This is the stigma or the centre part of the lotus.
2. Inner petals
Cut the “Inner petal” Template from the printable. Lay the template over the Pink sheet and trace with a pencil. To be precise, we need 6 Petals adjacent to one another ( refer to image). Mark them and cut.
Using a glue gun, stick together the Flaps at the bottom of each petal so that the petals get curvy. Finally, stick either end together, forming a ring of petals.
3. Outer petals
Make the outer petals in the same way how we made the inner petals. However, in this case, each petal will be a separate one.
Cut out the template, trace, cut and stick the bottom flaps of each petal. We might need a minimum of 12 petals.
4. Flower Base and pad
Next, we will make the base for the lotus flower and a Lotus Pad that would be a great compliment. Make use of the Template “Base” and “Pad” and cut the pieces.
5. Glue them all
Over the base, assemble everything using a Hot glue gun. It would be best if you started from the outer edge—first, all outer petals, Then the ring of inner petals, and finally, the stigma.
Place the paper Lotus over the Green lotus pad. It is ready!
