Hey there my fellow crafty peeps, I’ve got a neat tutorial to show you today. I’ll be making a paper flower out of watercolour paper and then I have a little video to show you how to do an ombre look on the petals.
So lets get started.
These are some supplies I’ll be using, a glue gun would work great(but I don’t have one…I know, I know I can’t believe it either).
4”x3” pieces of coldpress watercolour paper.
This is how I created the ombre look for the petals.
You’ll need to make large enough slits in the petals so the stem can fit through.
I used flower stem tape, wire stems and some stems I had from a faux flower bouquet. Or if you have the ones on the far left, they are awesome too.
I hooked the wire through the trinket and twisted the end to secure it, then I twisted the wire around the stem.
To get a realistic looking petal, bend and roll it around a bit and it will to give them their lovely shape. After the first three petals are in position, add glue to secure and continue adding more petals in a staggered pattern.
Once your flower is complete, wrap the stem with some stem tape for a finished look.
The result…a beautiful paper flower!
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial, have a super awesome crafty day!
