Today I have a gorgeous posy of flowers made out of paper, yes paper, and if you come along to my class tomorrow, I’ll show you how to make them!
I had my mum call in yesterday and she couldn’t believe that they weren’t real flowers!
You know when you walk into a florist to buy a bunch of flowers and you nearly fall over at the price of them? Well, this Daisy Delight bundle is a great bargain for $54.75 which is probably what many spend on buying a bunch of flowers that will die in a weeks time, but these ones you can keep for a lifetime and enjoy making many more for all your friends for their birthdays!!!! Wouldn’t that be such a wonderful gift to receive?!!!
Each flower is made up of 3 stamped and punched flowers and offset when glued together. I also used my bone folder to turn the ends of the petals down.
The stems of the flowers are made using cheap plastic drinking straws that I had in the kitchen cupboard, and I covered them with florists tape.
This is the back of the flower. You can see that the straw has been cut 5 times about 1/2cm down and opened up. This was glued with Tombo Multipurpose glue to the back of the flower. It didn’t look aesthetically pleasing, so I then cut a ring using the 3/8″ and 3/4″ circle punches to cover it and also make it more sturdy!
The greenery was something I have had for many years and it goes so well with these gerberas!
What do you think? These are just so bright and cheery and I reckon they would make the perfect gifts for anyone to brighten their day!
