You just need to prepare the simple ingredients as below:
- Crepe paper
- White floral wire
- Glue or Hot glue gun
- Tissue paper

Now, let’s DIY handmade paper lotus flower with me!
Step 01: Calyx of paper lotus flower
First, cut a piece of yellow crepe paper with the width of 1cm, arbitrary length to wrap around the wire to make the trunk of a paper lotus flower.
Cut a piece of tissue paper with a width of about 2cm and wrap it over the top of the wire just finished.
Then cut yellow crepe paper of similar size to wrap the outside. Next cut a circle larger than the calyx, cut its 8 corners then spread glue and paste to complete the yellow paper lotus calyx.
Step 02: Stamens & Pistil of paper lotus flower
Cut the yellow crepe paper with a width of about 6cm, then trim it into small pieces according to 1/2 the width of the paper. Continue to apply glue to fix it to the calyx. You have finished the paper lotus pistil.
Next, shred the yellow crepe paper into tiny pieces, then paste it on the calyx to form a pistil paper lotus flower as real as possible.
Step 03: Petals of paper lotus flower
Create a 3cm * 8cm paper lotus template shape to save time.
Fold the white crepe paper with the size above into 8 small pieces, then cut to the template, you will get 24-26 petals.
Spread glue into each petal lotus paper then apply layers by layer into the calyx and take care to adjust the shape of each petal.
Step 04: Trunk of paper lotus flower
Wrap a layer of tissue paper to create thickness for the trunk. Finally, wrap another layer of green crepe paper to complete the stem of paper lotus flower.
