Crepe Paper Flower Tutorial

Hi Everyone,
I have a quick crepe paper flower tutorial to share with you this morning. These are super easy to make and look beautiful on cards or scrapbook pages.


To begin, you must have a circle punch. It could be a scalloped punch, like the one shown here, or a just a regular circle punch would work as well.  I like the scallop punch because it gives the finished flower a more fancy edge to it. 

Once you have selected your punch, you will punch 4 circles out of crepe paper and one circle out of cardstock.  Just a quick note: I found crepe paper at my local thrift shop for .25 cents, Not bad huh?

Next, you will take your punched circles and fold them in half once and then fold them in half once again (as shown in this picture)  They should look like little pizza slices when folded correctly :)

Once your circles are folded,  you will put adhesive on the cardstock circle and attach the folded circles to the cardstock.

Here is what it will look like when all the folded circles are attached.
Lastly, you will want to use a button or a decorative brad to place in the center of your flower. You can use your imagination with the flower centers :)  And there you have a beautiful and simple crepe paper flower to use on your craft projects.  

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial today :) If you have any questions, feel free to ask me :) Have a great weekend everyone!
