Do you ever just feel like sitting and folding papers? Then these flowers are perfect for that, and as a bonus Stampin' Up!® has the Envelope Paper heavily discounted on the Close Out Sale.
Bad news is the sale finishes tomorrow, so if you want to stock up, head on over to my on-line store or select the image:
You'll find a heading: Close Out Paper and that's where you'll see all the lovely papers on sale or retiring. Don't forget to add the Host Code to your order!
These origami style flowers can be made in many different ways - I made mine for Christmas - use coloured papers or spritz them or simply add glitter for those who love a bit of bling. I used the Neutrals Envelope Paper Pack plus some gold and silver glitter from Stampin Up. The lighter weight paper makes folding easier, but still gives you firm flowers.
Most people make the flowers with just 5 petals but I decided to add more petals and I love the result. Just ensure that you have an odd number of petals. The only slight drawback is that the central hole is then larger and so requires a diamante or pearl or other embellishment to cover it over. No problems for me as my stash is quite adequate.
I've made this with lots of colour and some hand stamped papers as well - a gorgeous everlasting gift for someone special.
The stems are made with wire wrapped in florists tape, and I used the large floral shape from the Blossom Punch to cover the join at the base.
Until Next Time
