paper flowers

Socket two rectangles of tissue paper and lay them on top of each other, so that they line up exactly.

Short ½ cm wide slits along the plush paper, which must be folded in half. The cuts should be on the part where the double is located until you almost reach the edge without cutting it.

Cut a piece of thread 1 cm and set aside.

Garnish with the rectangles of tissue paper that you cut out at the beginning, the cable.

Place the long piece of sponge in the center of the rtissue paper rectangle, The slits should be at the top, then wrap the paper along the rod and secure it with string or glue.

When the plush paper is firm, cut the central part, where were the slits and you will see how a flower or some sort of feather duster is left along the stem. The fluff on the top of the petals can be made to your liking, with the amount of paper you want, just focus the cut paper on the top and the flower is in a better shape, you can also open it to show something bigger or leave it as is to make it look more perfect.

With the white ribbon you can attach all the flowers and you have a bouquet of colors, similar to carnations to surprise this Valentine’s Day, or any other day of the year.
