Paper Gerberas or Gerber Daisies


Welcome back to another post in the series on making paper flowers using (mainly) Stampin Up punches and dies.

Today I'm sharing two versions of Gerberas, or Gerber Daisies as they are called in the book. The one on the left is more or less like the version in the book, the one on the right has an extra layer of the bigger daisy shape and the smaller daisy has been shaped a bit better.

This one uses the Blossom Party Originals Die (115971) and the Big Shot machine. I used an oak leaf punch from my stash for the leaves, and a sun punch for the centres.

There is a bit of curling done to the individual petals on this one, but it looks better than flat shapes.

I hope you are enjoying this series of posts on the paper flowers I've made. If you would like to learn how to make these, please email me to book into a class.  All materials are provided, apart from glue, and if you have any of the useful tools I outlined in a previous post, make sure you bring them along.
