Materials List

  • Fiskars ​Petal by Petal Squeeze Punch
  • Cardstock in 4 Shades of Purple or Desired Color
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Adhesive
  • Hot Glue
  • Pencil
  • Button


  1. Using a paper trimmer, cut three 12" x .25" strips of cardstock and glue into one, long strip.

  2. Punch approximately 12 to 15 petals from each of four colors of cardstock, one group of the small petals and three groups of the large petals.

  3. Approximately six inches from the end of the strip, adhere the small petals overlapping in a row as shown using an extra strength glue stick along the strip. Continue down the strip with the large petals from light to dark until all petals are adhered.

  4. Roll the six inches at the end of the strip around a pencil. Continue rolling the rest of the petal strip around the pencil using a low-temp hot glue gun along the bottom strip to secure. Work in small sections so the glue doesn't dry too quickly.

  5. Pull down each layer of petals to reveal the flower. Hot glue a button at the center to complete. Repeat steps 1–5 for the other flowers.

These flowers are so useful. I like to use them to decorate for summer parties.

@Grandscraperona - Fiskars carries a lot of the squeeze punches, including the one mentioned above. There are other punches by other companies that frequently have 2-3 "holes" like this, but aren't of the squeeze variety. The squeezing can be difficult if one has a problem with one's hands. I would prefer a punch-type item rather than this type. Here is a url for the fiskar punches:
