I guess you could say this tutorial is still a work in progress. I'm sure you will see an updated version later, but for now I just can't wait to spread some lovely, floral cheer!
I recently found myself searching high and low for a paper Juliet Rose how-to with absolutely no luck. These flowers are understated and gorgeous (see below) but they are also a little pricey and hard to find. After my failed searching attempts I decided to figure out how to make one myself and although I know I'm getting close I'm still working at it!
- 3-5 2" Petals
- 4 4x1" Crepe Strips
- 1 1.5x6" Crepe Strip
- Faux Floral Stem
- Floral Tape
- Thin Wire
First, crumple the petals and then fold the ends in on themselves, as shown. Evenly accordion the small strips and loosely accordion the bottom of the large strip so that it concaves in on itself.
