Flower Girl With Paper Bouquet Cristina Riches, Bird's Party

For a full bouquet, you will need at least 12 paper flowers, depending on the size of your blooms and their fullness.

Materials Needed:

  • crepe paper
  • scissors
  • green floral wire
  • green floral tape
  • wired floral leaves (from craft stores)
  • ribbon
  • wire cutters

Cut Petals

Cut several teardrop (petal) shapes out of the crepe paper. The easiest and quickest way is to cut straight from the roll.

Prepare Wire

Cut a small square of crepe paper and fold in half to get a triangle. Fold the triangle around a floral wire tip (Image 1). Secure the paper to the floral wire with double-sided tape, and cover the entire wire in it (Image 2).

Add Petals and Create More Flowers

Keep adding crepe-paper petals to the bud and secure with floral tape at the base each time. Repeat as many times as you wish to vary the fullness of the rose. Continue making paper flowers with steps 1-3 until your desired number of blooms is achieved.
