I thought I'd use it to make flowers, I already feel like spring with these beautiful sunny days we have in this January, here in Italy.
I started from a very simple flower to realize: daisy
Crepe paper daisies
Daisy is symbol of innocence, simplicity, freshness, purity and sensibility.
- Yellow, white, green crepe papers
From yellow crepe paper cut a stripe 8" long and 0,8" high and cut many fringes
Make a loop in the wire
Stick the fringe around the wire with the glue
From white crepe paper cut a stripe 12" long and 1,5" high and cut some fringes
Stick the white stripe around the yellow one
From green crepe paper cut a stripe and use it to wrap around the cup and the stem of the flower
Bend the petals downward
And cut it as shown in the image below:
And here is the finished daisy...
I made also a daisy with orange paper inside and bigger petals
See you tomorrow with a project to realize a dahlia!
