Crepe Paper Flower


Today I am posting another crepe paper flower tutorial. I think I'll keep posting these different crepe paper tutorial, till I run out of crepe papers...:D I have had these papers for quiet some time now. I bought a whole bunch of different colors for a rainbow party and it has been there in the box for all these days.




Anyways, now with the tutorial.


You'll need:
-------------
Crepe Paper streamers.
Needle and Thread
Glue
Scissors

Steps:
------
- Cut three strips of streamers of approximately 20". And stack them one on top of each other. Then make a running stitch on the strips for the entire length of the strips.

- Cut fringes on these strips, just like the picture below.


- Pull the thread at one end of the strip and bring the ends of the strip together, so you now get a round flower shape.


-For the center of the flower, I used the crepe paper and crumpled that and place in a small square piece of paper.


- Bring together the sides of the square together so that you cover up the crumpled pieces and it looks like a ball.


- Glue this ball in the center of the flower.




You can check other crepe paper flowers by clicking the 'Paper Flower' label on the right.

  4. What a great choice of colour for your flower. Some brightness to snowy day (still). I love that you used crepe paper to make it - being a bit of a paper junkie myself. Visiting via "WakeUpWednesday" linkup
