Pretty white paper flowers that are pretty simple to shape
You will need:
Template (click to print out the PDF from our blog)
Crepe paper in different shades of cream and white
Green floral tape
Small sharp scissors
1 Cut crepe paper in the shape of the template.
2 Roll it, using a finger to roll the paper around into the shape of a bell, twist the paper at the top and wrap a piece of wire around it to give it a stem.
3 Make 5 or 6 bells before you attach them all to one long piece of wire, one after the other. Wrap floral tape around the wire.
4 Cut leaves out of green paper and attach them to the wire, then once again cover the wire with the floral tape.
5 Keep on going until you have a whole bouquet.
