Paper Flower Petal Tutorial – 3 EASY WAYS OF SHAPING PAPER FLOWER PETALS WITH BONE FOLDER
Hello, everyone! In this quick and easy paper flower petal tutorial I’ll show you how to use bone folder (aka paper creaser) to give your paper petals that smooth and beautiful curve. This is an amazing tool that I use for many flowers I make. Bone folder is pretty versatile and truly wonderful – everyone can learn how to use it. Cheers!
1. Bone folder on top
I use it for shaping both large and small petals. However, for extra large petals I recommend using method N#3.
2. Bone folder behind the petal
Your thumb will slide along the petal – best used on smaller petals and petal stacks.
3. Placing the petal on flat surface
This method might seem a little bit tricky but it creates very smooth curves. Definitely usable on large petals when its hard to secure them with your thumb.

Bone folder is very useful not only for shaping paper petals but also for many other paper crafting related techniques – I will cover it in my upcoming articles.
