FLORAL FRIDAY // Crepe papers Juliet Rose

by Judith Joosten 02 Nov 2017

Yes, I'm starting to learn :). A Floral Friday on Friday! This whole week I was bizarrely productive, a wonderful feeling. For me it can sometimes vary so much, depending on my mood. I really notice that if I make a good plan at the start of the week, my weeks are much more productive. This week I also started with a clear overview, three major goals and some smaller to-do's. It's Thursday when I write this blog and almost the entire list has already been checked off. This week is especially convenient because: today I am going to discuss some changes with the developer of my website. That makes me so excited!! I'm really looking forward to making the website more accessible and inspiring for you! <3 You'll hear more about the progress soon! Now first the tutorial :).

I'm going to show you step by step how to make this flower. Starting with the materials needed:

- This DIY package (I have made a DIY package for all new flowers. In these packages you will find all the materials you need to make one flower)

Are you going to make them yourself from scratch? Then you need these materials:

Step 1: The heart of the flower
Cut Template 1, stretch the top of the leaves so that a nice curve is created. Apply glue to the uncut bottom edge, wrap around the curved top of the wire.

Step 2: Cut and paste the small blades
Cut 30 x template 2 from pink paper and 10 x from the orange paper.

Stretch the paper slightly so that you get a small bulge for the petals.

Now you will stack the petals, making 10 sets. Each stacked with four leaves of Pink - Pink - Orange - Pink. You attach them to each other at the bottom edge of the leaves. So on each leaf you add glue to the bottom strip and then place the next leaf on top.

Step 3: Cut and shape the larger leaves
Cut 15x template 3 from pink paper and cut 5x template 3 from orange paper.

Stretch the paper so that you get a small bulge in it.

You will stack the petals again, making 5 sets. Each stacked with four leaves of Pink - Pink - Orange - Pink. You attach them to each other at the bottom edge of the leaves. So on each leaf you add glue to the bottom strip and then place the next leaf on top.

Then attach two sets that you made in step 3 between these leaves.

Step 4: Attach the leaves
​This part can be done with Tacky Glue, but it is easiest to do with a glue gun.

Attach the five sets you just made to the stem.

Then cut +/- seven leaves with template 4 and shape them into a petal. Also attach this to the iron wire/stem.

Step 5: The finishing touches
Cut fringes in the green strip, put glue on the bottom strip. Then twist it around the stem.

Finally, twist the narrow strip of green paper around the stem. Use small amounts of glue in between.

Now your flower is ready! YOU DID IT! :)

I'm super curious how it turned out! Share your creations on Instagram, tag @splendith and use #splendithpaperflowers

​Love,
Judith
