Crepe Paper Flowers and Ruffle Streamer Tutorials
I used crepe paper rolls from Party Pail to make these super easy ruffle streamers...stack three to four strips of crepe paper as long as you want and sew right down the center using the longest stitch possible. Instant ruffles!
To make it more fluffier....After it is sewn fold your strip in half and snip little strips (make sure you don't cut across the stitch line) fluff it up with your fingers voila your done.
To make these fluffly flowers...follow the same thing as above...only use just one layer and sew down the center to make it gather.
Roll into a flower shape and add little drops of hot glue to secure every so often. Spread out petals to form flower.
Secure last little piece with hot glue.
This flower is sewn but not down the middle...towards one side and sew it on the longest stitch again but this time you will have to pull the threads to gather it tightly. Snip the edges to create petals. Here is a great tutorial from Simple Joys that shows exactly how to make this flower and lots more beautiful crepe paper flowers!
I used hot glue to secure the flower edges.
Wad up some crepe paper to make a ball and then take a tiny piece and wrap around the entire wad to make it smooth. Hot glue into the center.
And there you have it :)
Come back tonight at 7pm for Centerpiece Wednesday linky party!!
