GIANT PAPER FLOWER MAKING
I’ve been itching to make one of these Giant Paper Flowers ever since spotting them on Design Sponge.
These huge flowers make brilliant props and beautiful backdrops. They could even make an awesome Mother’s Day present.
To make these amazing flowers I followed Ruche’s Giant Paper Flower Tutorial. Materials-wise you do need quite a few things that you’re unlikely to find lying around at home – 5″ wide stucco corner and 20 gauge tie wire – but nothing a trip to B&Q can’t handle. I got my tissue paper from ‘triple decker Paperchase’, the massive one on Tottenham Court Road. It has a really good range of ‘earthy’ tissue paper colours and loads of other crafty stuff up on the top floor. Once you’ve got all the bits, whipping up these amazing flowers doesn’t take that long at all – the illustrated step-by-step instructions are really easy to follow and ending up with the world’s largest flower is pretty satisfying.
If you want to get stuck into paper flower making – they don’t have to be huge and they can also be utterly beautiful – there’s bags of inspiration below…
