Create Paper Pansies
Cut out two of the smaller rose petal patterns and two of the violet petals with paper grain running vertically. Wrap smaller petals tightly against the wire (image 1). Next, wrap larger petals loosely around top of floral wire one at a time. Secure base with a small amount of floral tape (image 2). Attach one small leaf, and finish by wrapping any remaining tape around the stem (images 3 and 4). Use 1/2 or 3/4 of single wire stem for each flower since blooms are small.
Create Paper Leaves
Fold paper in half and cut half of the template on a solid line. Cut crepe paper with grain running vertically. For extra detail, use pinking shears around the top half and tips of each leaf.
Attach Paper Blooms to Wreath
Using the exposed stem on finished flowers, insert and twist floral wire into grapevine wreath to secure blooms (images 1 and 2). Additional leaves may be tucked in or attached with glue (images 3 and 4).
