While browsing in Martha Stewart's site, I couldn't help to read her craft post "Paper Dogwood Flowers" and I had to try this. I didn't use her template, but designed mine (very similar to hers). And here I share with you this magnificent craft.
I used 6 paper sheets*, glue, tree's branches and scissors.
Fold the sheet in 4 and unfold it again.
Cut over the lines.
Fold again, each piece of paper in four and unfold it.
Using a template, make the flower design you prefer.
Now you have the flowers and the tree branches.
Place a paper flower in (almost) every branch and place a glue drop in the center where the flower joins the branch.
This is how it looks once ready.
Here is how I tied them up. I used a hair elastic band and a safety pin.
Soon I will be preparing the vase for these flowers. And you will see the tutorial. Do you have any suggestions?
- I tried to use recycled paper, unfortunately, the written part was in sight, so I couldn't use them
