Nothing says spring like beautiful flowers! I wanted to make some pretty paper flowers to use as decoration in my home, I also wanted something quick cheap and dirty… OK not dirty, anywho – this is what I came up with!
Materials: kleenex, scissors, needle and thread
1. draw this pattern on your kleenex – for a five petal flower make five humps
2.cut it out, fold it like an accordian, and sew through the accordian
3. sew through the other end, pull together and tie off – you’ve got yourself a flower!
I didn’t like the pen edge so I made a bunch more where I cut down past it. Then I mixed them together with some pink paper roses and threw them into an heirloom crystal bowl my grandma gave me.
AHHH spring. love it. What crazy things have you made flowers out of? I love thinking out of the box and turning mundane into chic/modern.
