Crepe paper flowers

Paper Flower Tutorial
By Yvonne Tune
Card Art Creations

Cut or punch out 2 Circles
1 x 1- 1/2 inch
1 x 2 inch

Cut a strip of Crepe paper (slightly bigger than the circle)
 and fold over and back until you have 6 layers,
place the circle on top and cut out
repeat for both sizes





Scrunch all the layer up tightly
and then open them back out,
but not fully
For the larger flowers place the 6 smaller petals on top of the 6 larger petals, for the smaller flower, you need 6 smaller petals

Make a hole in the centre and thread a brad through


The flowers also look lovely when a button is stitched in place
This flowers is made with non woven fabric instead of crepe paper
( I used a 6 petal flower punch 2inch and 1 1/2 inch size, from Crafts Too UK.  to make  the flower)




Small toppers made with a small flower



Poppy made with Red non woven fabric petals, with a black centre.
(the center petals are not opened out) 
the organza leaves are made with wired edge organza ribbon.

This flower has a gathered organza layers inbetween the paper layers, and a organza ribbon centre.

This flowes has only 4 layers, of stretch crepe paper petals,
each petal has been tipped with gold stickles.
