Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls (17)

When I first saw these, I thought they would be really difficult to do because they look quite intricate but actualy, they're easy! Anyone can make these with the minimal of materials. Materials needed: DIY Paper Gardenia. It seems that every time I create a new paper flower template it becomes my new favorite.

DIY Paper Gardenia

Well my dears, it has happened again. This paper gardenia is simply gorgeous and just in time for Mother’s Day. Even if you don’t have time to make a full bouquet, just one on top of a wrapped gift will add that “gift-on-top-of-gift” that I love to do when I do my own gift wrapping. These gardenias would also make a perfect Mother’s Day corsage to pin onto her (or your) top or tie at the wrist. The possibilities go on. Streamer Roses. Tutoriel fleurs en filtre à café.

Tutoriel fleurs en filtre à café

Voici le matériel dont vous aurez besoin : Des filtres à café.Des piques à brochette ou autre objet en forme de tige.Du scotch de fleuriste.Un stylo.Une paire de ciseaux.Du colorant alimentaire liquide de la couleur de votre choix. Voici les étapes à suivre : Commencez par tracer les pétales sur vos filtres à café, de forme pointue, comme sur la photo par exemple, ou encore arrondie, en sachant qu’il vous faudra un minimum de 6 formes pour une fleur, puis découpez-les. Séparez vos pétales en dépliant le bas des filtres : cela vous fait donc 12 pétales, que vous devrez assembler en les enroulant sur une tige recouverte de scotch de fleuriste. Trempez ensuite votre fleur dans du colorant alimentaire liquide pour lui donner sa couleur, puis laissez sécher la tête en haut pour que le colorant descende. *Retrouvez tous nos tutoriels mariage dans notre section Fait Maison.

Flower Tea Bags

Flower Topped Tea Bags make a perfect gift. We started experimenting with tea for Mother's Day and loved the results. Can you believe this color is actually tea? Autumn Flower Wreath. Today I have a tutorial of sorts to share.

Autumn Flower Wreath

It is not a full tutorial because 1. I learned to make the flowers from an already pretty amazing tutorial and 2. I left my camera in Ryan’s truck and was too impatient to wait to put it together until he came home so I don’t have photos of the actual attaching to the wreath phase of the project. Sometimes you just have to go with it when the crafting bug gets you. This wreath is a combination of a regular grape vine wreath you can purchase at the craft store, lots of coffee filter flowers and a few acorn and berry sprigs.

Okay, so on with the tutorial. I wanted fall-ish colors for my flowers, so I used yellow, pink, red and orange paint. Mix your paint with water, stir well, scrunch in a stack of coffee filters and let them soak up the paint. I dried some flat on paper towels, but then ran out of room and made a clothes line to dry the rest. Okay, now on to the flower making part. Open up the filters and cut the outer ring open.

Coffee Filter Roses

This post was originally one sweet little DIY tutorial all set to go live at 9am this morning then I got immersed in the intoxicating world of coffee filter flowers and ended up adding another and another until I was up to my eyeballs in coffee filter tutorials and inspiration!

Crepe Paper Roses

(If you would like to write for Folding Trees, see our Submissions page for details.) Find out how to make SiSi’s beautiful crepe paper roses with our tutorial: You will need: Red crepe paper (at least 30″ long)Green crepe paper (at least 12″ long)Green wired stemScissorsGlue Instructions Fold the red crepe paper in half horizontally to form a long thin strip. Roll the paper around that end about 3 times (you are forming the center of the rose). With the long end of the crepe paper, gently fold it backwards and continue to roll. A good tip is to hold the bottom part tightly so it does not become loose. When you get to the end, leave about 2.5″ unrolled. Insert the green wired stem at the bottom of your rose.

Cut a piece from the green crepe paper, and cut out an X-shaped ‘leaf’ for the bottom of the rose. Different Flower Cuts. Tissue Paper Carnations. Today is the start of Flower Week on Folding Trees.

I made two dozen of them to decorate my daughter’s 18th birthday party last year mixing it with a black and white French theme. As one of my favorites and loving the happy orange color, I have since used these poppies for paper brooches, to wear in my hair and of course to add that special touch on top of gifts.
