On one late evening during this week I got a crazy crafting bug, if you know what I mean. I realized that I want to make some Christmas decoration - different than last year and years before.
Usually I use vintage decoration what I've collected during the years. But not this year. No to X-mas tree even though I love it. Yes to paper flowers and real flowers - love them too. One vintage item I will have and have it already - orange star in the window. It's the same kind as the one we had at our home when I was a child. So it has a special meaning. With orange goes well brussian blue. Love also vintage, so the paper I used for these flowers is vintage gift wrapper.
You can use any size of paper you want. My paper was retangle shaped and a little bit smaller than A3 (297mm×420mm). Don't use too thin paper. Fold the paper in same sized folds flipping over each time. Cut the last bit away if it's too small or if it's too big, cut the extra piece away.
Fold in half. Then tie the metal wire or thread where the fold is. I used metal wire.
Cut both ends same time to the shape you like. You can always make different kind of flowers.
Unfold it. You can use tape like I did - double sided of course or glue. Join sides carefully together. Use a needle to put a thread through for hanging.
Then you have a last step to go - where to put them? I will decorate one wall with these flowers.
Merry X-mas to You!
