My class this Sunday at Los Poblanos is making paper flowers.
We will make a bouquet from white, lavender and pink cardstock - cut and curled and wired, taped and collected together with ribbon and leaves ............
We will also make these lovelies, from pages in an old phone book. They are simply scallop-cut paper strips wound around the end of a branch and wrapped tight with wire. It is nice to add a bit of color on the inside of each "petal" so there is a subtle color to the blossom.
I think they look so realistic, don't you?
Helps to put them on the branch.....and not be too concerned about how "carefully" you twist the paper around. I hope to make a bunch and fill a vase for the center of the table.
