Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls (17)
Posted by: Cathy on Aug 04, 2012 Tagged in: Untagged Paper Flower Tutorial Doesn't this look divine? 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: - hand-painted paper or colored paper - watercolor paint (if painting your own paper) - florists tape - cork - wire - decorator's tape - scissors - craft knife If you decide to paint your own paper, you can add a wash of soft pink to your paper/card. Cut your paper in thin strips with a craft knife. If you've used a few pieces of paper, join them with paper glue so that you end up with a long strip. Start rolling up this strip of paper. Now you can cut your green paper into leaf shapes as above. Attach your leaves with more tape all around the base of the flower. To make the center of your flower, cut a small piece of cork and push a piece of wire through it as in the image. Et voila!
