How to make paper flowers – roses
Step 1: make petals
I chose red crepe paper to make petals
Usually, it is about 12-14 petals,
Cut crepe paper into three different in width and length, the inner petals will be shorter than the outer. When forming the petals, we can curve the hem of petals to make it become smoother . then use scissors to curl the tip of petals
Next, using your fingers stretch all petals ( make this lightly because paper will be teared)
Step 2: ressemble the petals on branch
Using zinc to make branch, bending tip of zinc to ensure it will be fixed with petals
Apply the glue on petals, then wrap smallest petal around zinc at bended tip of zinc
Continuing with the two other petals around center
the next step, use 3-4 petals, glue next 3-4 petals around bubs! Make the same as the next 5-6 petals!! Adjust all petals gently!
Then using copper wire or clew to tie all petals together as the picture
Step 3: make calyx
Using scissors cut crepe paper into rectangle, trim it to form calyx as shown on the picture. Glue calyx below the bloom term
Using floral tape fix flower, calyx, branch together.
Step 4: make leaf (paper flowers)
Cut green crepe paper into rectangle, then cut to diagonal line of rectangle!!
Stack two piece and cut into curved shape ( form serrated leaves- leaves of rosea)
Apple glue on the line of leaf and put copper wire on it, then put the other on that( the copper wire will help the leaf smooth)
Continuing with other leaves.
Using floral tape fix 3 leaves together
Step 5: ressemble leaves on branch
Cover leaves and branch with floral tape
Finally, we have a beautiful flower
