Pipe Cleaner Flower Tutorial

Pipe Cleaner Flower

I found these cute Pipe Cleaner Flowers either on a blog or in a magazine. Unfortunately, I can't remember where. I thought that they were really cute & they go together pretty quickly. They look great on cards, layouts or even a 3D project.

Here's how you can make your own Pipe Cleaner Flowers.

Pipe Cleaner
Wire snips / scissors
Scor Pal Tape
1 ½ ” Fiskars Squeeze Circle punch

Using the wire snips or strong scissors, cut your pipe cleaner into 2” sections. Take each section & twist into a “U” shape. Punch out a circle using your 1 1/2" circle punch. Add scor pal tape or strong adhesive tape to the back of the circle. Stick each 2 inch section of the pipe cleaner to the adhesive side of the circle. Once you have all 5 sections attached, you can shape them to your preference. Attach a brad in the center of your flower. Trim excess circle so that it doesn’t show through.

Here’s my flower on a “Accordion File” that I made for myself to keep my extra stamped Magnolia images in.
I hope that you've enjoyed this tutorial and are on your way to making your own pipe cleaner flowers.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
