Paper Flowers

Many of you like the paper  flowers and paper decorations, which this year acquired enormous popularity. I invite you to visit  two of the master classes for paper flowers, one of our favorite Martha Stewart, the other – from Olivia Kanaley from A Field Journal to The Bride’s Cafe. As always, simply brilliant paper flowers ideas!

1. Fold  8 layers of napkins 20 * 30 inches (about 51 * 76 cm). Fold the stack in a creases and a half inches in width (approximately 4 cm), smoothing each fold.
2. Fold the 18-inch (46 cm) piece of floral wire in half and staple it to the creases center. Cut the edges of the creases in the form of a semicircle.

3. Separate the layers from each other, pulling them away from the center, one after the other.
4. Bend the wire into a loop, so it was possible to hang the pom-poms, and tighten it around the end of the ring for safety.

Similarly in order to make the napkin rings, Martha recommends only to take 4 sheets of paper with the size of 10 * 5 inches (26 on 13 cm), and one needs to wring wire into a ring

Paper flowers bouquet. Now, the second master-class on making a paper bouquet.

One needs:

  •  corrugated paper for flowers
  • scissors
  •  white floral tape
  • white floral wire
  •  glue
  •  small beads

Paper flowers bouquet instructions:

1. Cut a strip of paper about 4-5 inches (10-13 cm) wide and 18 inches (46 cm) long. The folds of corrugated paper should be parallel to the short side. Put in half a few times until you get a rectangle with a width of about 2 inches (5 cm).
2. Cut the top edge, get it rounded  to create the shape of a semicircle. Unfol the strip of paper.
3-4. Again, fold the strip of paper, but not exactly in the half, and with a shift. Now cut a straight edge of the semicircle, like last time. Unfold it.
5. Now fold the strip in half in length. Take one end of the strip and attach it to one end of the wire, making a loop and tighten it around the paper.
6. Begin to form a flower. Wind the paper around the wire and close all floral tape. When the flower is fully formed, cover tape part of the stem.
7. Use your fingers to disassemble the petals of a flower. Corrugated paper is a bit stretched so that you can gently pull the tips of the petals to create a more realistic appearance. Add some glue and sprinkle with small beads in the center of the flower.
