paper flowers tutorial

Refer: How to Make 100 Paper Flowers - for Winding Rose and Anemone for the inspiration for this and other detailed techniques.

Crepe paper folds - peach/ivory/red/black Blumchen Castle in the Air
Scrap book paper - in red and black pattern or of choice Joann Fabrics Michaels
Stem wire -18 gauge Joann Fabrics Michaels
Guinea feathers - optional
Florist wire -26 gauge

These whimsical paper flowers are a breeze to make once you have learned the basic techniques of paper flowers making precisely the "Winding Technique".

Step1. Cut a red square out of the red crepe paper fold. Scrunch some leftover crepe paper scraps into a ball.Bend the stem wire into a hook (very important which most crafters don't instruct as it reduces slippage) and place the hooked end with the ball and wrap the ball with the square to tie with florist wire to get a balled center.
