Crepe Paper Flower Bouquet

  • Crepe Paper in your colors of choice - I used pastel pink and salmon colors
  • Gold Crepe paper - From most craft stores
  • Green Floral Wire
  • Hot Glue
  • Double-sided tape
  • Wire Cutters
  • White Card stock
  • Round Paper Puncher - Optional
Step 1 - Cut petal shapes (doesn't have to be perfect) out of crepe paper. If using a roll, it's easier to cut many at once as shown. Also petal size will dictate how big your bloom is.
 
Step 2 - With your fingers, shape the petals by pulling them upwards to curve them slightly.
 
Step 3 - Start gluing the petals in a spiral fashion onto a circle of white card stock, slightly overlapping each petal onto the previous one. 
 
Step 4 - Use double-sided tape for this and carry on building your flower. Do another layer of pink petals on top of the first; gluing them slightly more towards the center.
 
Step 5 - Carry on as before, using slightly smaller petal sizes in a  contrasting color. I used salmon pink, and made 2 extra layers.
 
Step 6 - Now take a rectangle of the gold crepe paper about 2 inches wide and 12 inches long. Fold it in half width-ways.
 
Step 7 - Snip along the folded edge, half way down (about 1/2 inch cuts).
 
Step 8 - Roll the gold paper on itself, and using a dab of hot glue to secure as you roll. Fan out the top of the rolled paper.
 
Step 9 - Hot glue the rolled part to the center of each flower.
 
Step 10 - With wire cutters (this part is NOT for kids), make a little loop on the end of the floral wire. Bend the loop at 90 degree angle o you have a flattish surface in which to work with.
 
Step 11 - Hot glue the wire to the back of each flower head. At this stage you can use a piece of green crepe paper or card to cover the hot glue - Simply thread it through the other end of the wire and secure in place while the glue is hot.
 
Step 12 - Vary your bloom sizes and gather stems together into a beautiful bouquet!
