Crepe Paper Flowers

I finally had the chance to try my hand at making a few of the flowers from the Paper to Petal book, and I'm afraid I'm hooked!

Crepe Paper Flowers

These flowers are the Five Petal Sweeties on page 178. They are so satisfying to make - I want them in every color! I started out with a black, white, gray, and red palette to go with some of my Halloween decor. The red pips (or flower stamen) are from my mom's craft stash and I think are as old as I am. The flower centers are spun cotton that I ordered from this shop.

I purchased the brown floral tape from the craft store, but was having serious trouble with it leaving sticky residue everywhere. I did some online searching and read that the craft store tape is not as good as the 'real' stuff you get from floral shops. I bought a new roll from the local florist and I'm excited to try it out.

I had fun painting the white crepe paper with acrylic craft paints to come up with custom color combinations. I diluted the colors to get softer affects and visible paint stroke strokes.

I can't wait to try some of the other flowers! Have you made any flowers from this great book? I'd love to see them.
