DIY-Crepe-paper-flower

Quite some time passed and I have not craft at all.  I feel alive and thriving again.  Craft + Blogging are some of my tid bits of therapy from my Nursing world.  I am soo excited for another little niece in my life. I am planning my friend’s baby shower along with other friends.  I have about 3 weeks to gather this all together.  I bought plenty of crepe paper rolls for the photo-booth backdrop (future post to follow) and thought “I actually don’t need all this, what am I going to do with them?”  Suddenly I started making flowers with them!  And here I am making flower as a gift tag for our niece’s gift.  Simple, inexpensive, and just luscious!

1} Fold the crepe paper in about 1″ width.  Cut the edge to the shape you desire. After cutting the edge, use your thumb and pointer finger to hold the middle while gently shaping the crepe paper in a circular motion until the flower is complete.  I love my flowers to be full so I used about a foot of crepe paper roll.

2} Time to make a hole at the center of the flower.

3} Now cut a piece of wire ~1″ to hold the crepe paper together at the center.

4} And there you have it…a simple + pretty flower as a gift tag!
