Even though it’s still snowing here at my house, it’s technically spring according to the calendar. To help it feel more like spring I’ve created this fun 3D tulip garland to add a little pop of color while I wait for the real tulips to bloom! String this across a mantle or hang it on a wall for a fun colorful spring display! The new colors in the Woodstock Collection are perfect for this!
To create this cute 3D tulip garland, you will need:
- Cardstock Warehouse Papers:
- Verde Woodstock 83 Lb. Cover
- Azzurro Woodstock 83 Lb. Cover
- Giallo Woodstock 83 Lb. Cover
- Cipria Woodstock 83 Lb. Cover
- Malva Woodstock 83 Lb. Cover
- Cricut Maker, or Explore
- Scoring tool, or scoring wheel tool
- Hot Glue Gun
- Bakers Twine
Now that you have everything you need, let’s get to work creating this fun 3D Tulip banner!
To begin, cut all of your pieces on your cutting machine. I used Verde for the stems, and the other 4 colors for the flowers.
The cutting file for this project can be found by clicking this link to Cricut Design Space: 3D Cardstock Tulip Banner
After cutting out all of your paper pieces, you’ll start by folding along all of the score lines on the tulip petal pieces.
Each tulip will use 4 of the petal pieces. Take two of the petals and glue them together, do this with the remaining two petals as well.
After you have let the two petal pieces dry, you will glue those two pieces together to create one 3D petal piece.
After allowing the petal piece to dry, you will glue the petal pieces to the green leaf piece.
Then you will glue a second green leaf piece behind the first leaf piece and fold up the leaves to give it a 3D effect.
You will repeat this process for all of the tulip colors, making as many as you’d like for the length of garland you want.
The last step will be to attach all of your complete tulips to some colorful bakers twine or ribbon and hang up in your desired location.
You can add additional embellishments to the twine if desired, for example, some pom poms or bows might look nice between the tulips. You could also write a name on the leaf and use the individual tulip as a place card at your Easter table.
So whip up some of these 3D tulips and make a fun spring banner today. It will help bring some spring inside if it’s still snowing like it is here at my house!
