Now the sun is shining and you can really feel spring is in the air. We have longed so long for light and sun, and in just a couple of weeks, spring flowers are in bloom. Finally! But as we wait and the weather still might be a little sneaky, what would better than to take advantage of the Easter break to make some beautiful paper crafts and flowers that survive the frost?
Dig deep into your stash of old wrapping paper, toffee and muffin forms, candy wrappers, finished read interior magazines, colored cardboard, or any other paper material you can find and begin to cut flowers. Cut flowers of different sizes by hand or by template from this link;
After you have made a large number of flowers, the fun begins. Take a sheet of heavy cardboard and draw a circle using a plate. After that, put on a saucer and draw an inner circle so that the rim is about 5 cm wide. Then cut out the ring which now becomes the body of the wreath.
Time to make flowers! Put together a variety of sizes, designs and colors of the flowers in layers. To get more effect you may need to fold some petals to make the flowers shape. Make a hole in the middle of all the layers of flowers with an awl, and put clamps into them (nowadays clamps are available in different colors, sizes and shapes in Scrapbook stores). Make holes where you want the flower to be positioned in your wreath. Then, stick the flowers with the clamps and fold them on the back side. Fill the entire paper wreath of flowers.
PS! Take a picture of your wreath and send it to us via Facebook.
We wish you all a HAPPY EASTER!
