Instead of a bouquet, give a big flower

This phenomenal giant, large flower simply delights us. We believe that every girl would like it.

On the blog Greenweddingshoes, where we found how to make it, the flower, as it is written, was intended for the bride instead of a bouquet, but we think it is great as a gift for Valentine’s Day or some other similar occasion.

You can find almost everything you need in a shop selling decorative items for florists.

Material:

  • Green adhesive tape for flowers
  • 6 thin wires for artificial flower stalks
  • Crepe paper for petals (pink, purple, red,…) – 4 pieces of dimensions 25 × 125 cm
  • 1 piece of crepe paper – green
  • Round pencil
  • Loiter

Cut out the patterns first: 3 patterns (cut out of paper) of petals in the shape of a drop, 8 patterns of petals in the shape of a heart, 2 patterns in the shape of a leaf and one pattern in the shape of a flower cup (see photos).

Place 2 pieces of crepe paper on top of each other and 1 copy of the petal template. Fasten them on the sides with a paper clip. (It is not recommended to cut more than two pieces of crepe paper at once, because the edges will not be nicely cut). Repeat the process until you get 5 to 6 petals in the shape of drops and about 15 petals in the shape of a heart.

Cut both 3 leaves and 1 cup of flower from green crepe paper. To make the stem, connect 3 pieces of wire and wrap them with green adhesive tape.

To shape the rose petals, stretch them a little with your hands (as in the photo), then twist the tops a little with a pencil.

First take one petal in the shape of a drop, then wrap it around the made stem and fasten it with adhesive tape. Repeat by placing the petals around the stem until all the petals are used up. Do the same with the heart-shaped petals.

Wrap the remaining three wires separately with green adhesive tape and glue them to the sheets. Glue the cut cup where the rose “sprouts” from the stem, then add, glue three leaves with stems.

The rose is done! Do you like it?
