So lets started with our today’s tutorial How to Make Crepe Paper Flowers.
Material You Need:
Order your choice of crepe paper and get started!
We will start with the petals. Take your crepe paper.
We need to make lots of 5 inch by 5 inch squares.
Take one square and join its left bottom and right top corners to make a perfect triangle.
Take this triangle and hold it such that you wll have two sides up and one side down like below.
Join both the up sides to make a smaller triangle.
Repeat it one more time.
Now with help of the scissor make a petal by cutting it just like below.
One you open it you will get a heart shape. Remember not to open the entire petal at this stage.
Now place us thumb on half part of the heart and twist the its upper part like below.
Your thumb will help you to a proper shape to petal.
You need to make lots of petals. Well, I made around 10-15 for one.
Open each petal gently.
Now take the wire. I used a thin wire so I made it double.
Bend both the sides of the wire.
Take one petal and insert it in wire from the bottom part of the wire.
Make sure you insert the wire exactly in middle of the petal.
Apply some glue on top of the wire.
Take the petal till the top of the wire and stick it to glue. You can squeeze the petal a little bit to give wrinkles and crispy look.
Keep on applying glue and inserting petals one after another.
Now we need to cover up the wire with green crepe paper.
Cut out a small peipce of paper like below.
Apply some glue after the last petal and start wrapping up the paper till the end.
Apply glue at the bottom and cut the excess green paper if any.
