DIY Watercolor Paper Lily

DIY Watercolor Paper Lily Happy Friday. . . freebie Friday! What is more summer than lilies? They remind me of my grandmother’s garden. Here is my paper version of my grandma’s lilies. I printed these on a card stock paper this time, thinking that lilies have thicker petals than other flowers. After printing the template (see link at end of post) you can follow my tutorial below. Enjoy~ Lia

  2. Love your tutorials…enjoy trying these beautiful flowers :-)

  3. Another beautifully designed project!

  4. So lovely, Lia! I can always tell which projects on craftgawker are yours before I even see the name… just because of their elegance. :)

  5. Would it be possible to it this on white paper as well? One of my best friends is a big stargazer lilly fan I would love to make her one for her birthday, coming up.

  6. So beautiful! i love freebie friday!!

  7. Hey there. I have been looking through all your flowers as I am hoping to make paper bouquets for my wedding next year :) These are the best tutorials I have seen with the best results. Exactly what I am looking for! Thank you

    I was wondering if I too could have a white template to play with. Hoping to do some water colouring in our wedding colours.

    I’ll be sure to put up some photos of it when it’s all done (wont be for a while yet!)


  8. Have you tried using zots instead of the hot glue? Would they be strong enough or is hot glue the best option?

    • I have not tried them, so let me know what you find if you do. I love hot glue (set on the low temp) and use it for everything, but I am open to trying new things too so maybe I will have to find some zots.

  22. Lia,
    Parabéns pelo seu trabalho…é maravilhoso!!! Gostaria de fazer o lírio amarelo para o aniversário da minha filha…você poderia me passar qual o tipo de papel devo usar ?

    Obrigada e parabéns novamente pelo lindo trabalho!!!

  23. oh my Lia! These are soooo beautiful.. I am addicted today to your site! My daughter is getting remarried (redemtively!) and there is basically no budget.. yet she wants to have a memorable day as this man truly loves her . She loves flowers. Though this would be also a bit costly, with time and friends helping, I am hoping she will be able to use some of your tutorials. Is there any way at all that you might have both white and stargazer ( white with bright pinkish fuschia lily) printables also? Hope you see this as it is an old post!
