Paper Dinner Plate Dahlia

A visual guide to a paper flower

"Amity, of Florabeane and Patreon is natural artist and teacher! Her expertise and experience translates beautifully to make flower crafting enjoyable and satisfying!"

-Marianna @petalbloomflorals

Holiday update: I posted some new content on this lesson, a quick and easy video on how to change the recipe to make a half dozen. Enjoy.

Dahlia 'Labyrinth' arrives in summer and produces bountiful blooms until frost. This dinner plate variety produce huge flower heads prized in design and event work. Truth be told, these divas don't like to travel au natural, so florists look for local growers, and are now turning to paper as a fantastic, luxurious complement. These dahlias are hand-colored for nuance through dip-dying.

You will learn:

Dip dying and other coloration

Petal cutting, shaping, and gluing




"Go and do the course--it is given with a lot of fun and you learn step-by-step to make a flower....can't wait for the next flower. I like it and I can find it when I want to look back...also for a non-English speaker it is very clear. I did make the flower with a lot of fun because your way of teaching is so nice!"
