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.

Ombreflowers

So lets get started.

supplies 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).

3x4paper4”x3” pieces of coldpress watercolour paper.

This is how I created the ombre look for the petals.

petalsYou’ll need to make large enough slits in the petals so the stem can fit through.

stemsI 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.
