Crepe Paper Roses

Crepe Paper Roses
Today we’re happy to present the first Folding Trees tutorial from a contributor! (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. Cut the remainder of the green crepe paper in half to make it thinner. Finished!

DIY Paper Gardenia It seems that every time I create a new paper flower template it becomes my new favorite. 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.

How to create and keep an art journal by aisling d'art ©2006 Artist's journals are illustrated diaries and journals on any theme.

DIY Paper Poppy Another one of my favorite paper flowers that I created last year is this orange paper poppy. 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. Ribbon Flower Pin Tutorial I thought with pretty good certainty that the last corsage I would ever pin on was at Senior Prom in High School. But I was wrong. A few weeks ago I visited the Quilting Cottage in American Fork, Utah. I love the Quilting Cottage, which is not only a quaint little store, but they have a wonderful selection of fabrics.

2 Easter Paper Crafts 1. Big paper eggs - easy to cut off and assemble, suitable for Easter decoration. We cut 4-5 green printer sheets into thin strips to make the grass on the photos. After that we crumpled it well and it turned into fresh spring grass. We used paper in different colors and it turned out well. Autumn Flower Wreath Today I have a tutorial of sorts to share. It is not a full tutorial because 1. I learned to make the flowers from an already pretty amazing tutorial and 2.
