Crafting for a Cause: Making a Paper Forget Me Not

Welcome to our latest crafting adventure! Today, we’re diving into a project that’s not only easy and fun to create but also holds a special meaning. We’re making a paper Forget Me Not, and we’re thrilled to share our free video tutorial now available on our YouTube channel (available below).


Why Forget Me Not?

The Forget Me Not flower has long been a symbol of remembrance and love. Its delicate blue petals remind us to cherish our memories and the people we hold dear. This project has an added layer of significance as it was originally designed for an Alzheimer’s disease fundraising event last year. The Forget Me Not represents the importance of remembering and honoring those affected by this condition.


What You’ll Need

Before we get started, let’s gather our materials. You’ll need:


Tools:


Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Prepare Your Paper: Begin by selecting your blue and yellow paper. These colors will help your Forget Me Not stand out with its vibrant, recognizable look.

  2. Cut: Cut the template using your cutting machine

  3. Assemble the Flower: Once you have all your pieces, it’s time to assemble.


Watch and Learn

We know that crafting can sometimes be easier when you can see each step. That’s why we’ve created a comprehensive video tutorial to guide you through the process. Watch below:




Why This Project Matters

This paper Forget Me Not is more than just a pretty craft. It’s a reminder of the importance of memory and the impact of Alzheimer’s disease. By participating in this project, you’re helping to raise awareness and support those affected by the condition.

Share Your Creations

We’d love to see your completed projects! Share your paper Forget Me Nots on social media and tag us. Let’s spread awareness and beauty together.


A Market Success

The design turned out great! I decided to try selling these paper Forget Me Nots at artisan markets, and they have become a bestseller. I sell each pot for $17, which is on the cheaper side compared to my other paper flowers in clay pots. Typically, the average price for my paper flowers with interchangeable wooden stakes or signs is $25. The more affordable price point of the Forget Me Not pots has contributed to their popularity and high sales.
