How to Make Tissue Paper and Crepe Paper Flowers | Irrational Season Follow-up
The great thing about these flowers is that you should only have to buy a few very cheap things.
You will need some sort of stem. You can use wire or paper stems that you have on hand or purchase some cheap floral wire.
I also use little plastic pacifiers for the buds, but it is only because I had them and they save a step. You don't need them.
The smaller you make your slits the more they will curl like these white ones.
I also used a smaller crepe paper center for the white flowers as opposed to tissue paper in the blue.
Both flowers used basic tissue paper for the outer layers.
|Put a few petals on the outside of your bud and attach a piece of floral tape.|
|Here is what it looks like after one layer of petals.|
|Keep rolling on layer after layer. I use one long strip of tape and keep adding petal rows.|
|See how the petals are layered from left to right and by height. This is the trick to the natural look.|
|After each layer, roll the tape around tightly to secure the petals.|
|...after a few layers...|
|After wrapping layers of petals, pull them out to fluff them up a bit.|
The rest of the process is the same.
