Crepe Paper Flower

You don't need a fancy die cutters to make these pretty flowers.
I have punched a 2 and a 1/2  inch circle and a 2 inch 
circle punch for my templates
I Folded over the crepe paper 7 times for each size petal 
placed the circle on top and cut around the circle.

Screw each petal layer up into a ball.

Open them out roughly 
and layer them up in the opposite direction, by that I mean each petal layer with naturally curl up wards when you open the ball, so start placing them on top of each other in the opposite direction. all the large petal layers and then the smaller ones.

Use a pricking tool to make a hole in the centre for a brad to secure all the petal layers in place, 
squeeze all the petals again and tease  out to form your flower.
Or stitch them in place and add a button. or a blob of silicone and some seed beads to look like stamens .

Here they are complete.
Use different size circles to get larger or smaller flowers
these take about 5 minutes to make.

Crepe paper cost about €1.00 a pack 
and each pack makes about 50 flowers 
so very cheap to make
but very effective.


  1. Very simple cute idea! Thanks!

  2. We are making these on the 12th but a little different, you know me always keeping something back, wait until you see the embellishments,
    See you on the 7th for our fun night.
