Paper craft flower made simple!
Each one starts as a roll of paper and transforms into a realistic single flower, bouquet, or anything between that will last years to come.
About The Workshop:
There's a reason flowers are the decoration of choice for most special occasions. They are colorful, welcoming, elegant, and can make almost every room feel special. Handmade paper flowers can create a delicate bouquet that makes a perfect personal gift or can be used as individual table centerpieces. Let's make these beautiful flowers to last forever by turning them into Paper Art.
What We Will Do:
This workshop will be taught through Zoom, you will learn step-by-step instructions and tips on how to make a paper peony flower with Erica Worral from Little Paper Flowers. You will learn the techniques of cutting, shaping, and configuring a paper flower to look realistic. Creating paper flowers starts with learning the anatomy of the real flower you are trying to replicate. Each petal is cut out of fine Italian crepe paper, shaped to resemble the petals of the original flower, and then adhered to a wrapped wire stem. By the end of the class, you will take away a beautifully sculpted flower that will last you years with good care.
