Make Gorgeous Camellia Blooms from Metallic Paper


I am always so happy to see the spring camellias in bloom and equally as sad when these brief flowers are gone again for another year. To make their pretty pink and white bursts last a little longer, I have made a template to recreate the camellia from metallic text weight papers that you can get right here on You will find the downloadable template at the end of this post.

The text weight (not card stock) metallic paper I used is Azalea for the bright pink, Rose Quartz for the pale pink, Quartz for the white and Botanic for the leaves. I used this Gold for the center of the flowers. To give the flowers extra dimension I printed (with a laser printer) a pale pink watercolor onto the Rose Quartz and Quartz, that is why you are seeing three pinks. I also cut three blooms from the Quartz white with no printing for the white flowers. If you would like to reproduce this look, I can find the watercolor print over on my blog post as well as the step-by-step tutorial on how I made them. Enjoy! ~ Lia
