This is my first make for my new home! Do you like them? I came up with the idea because I had all this beautiful paper from the Homemaker Magazine supplements and we had just bought 10m of garden wire...it was possibly a bit for the project in mind so I figured my mum wouldn't miss a few feet. Do you like my tile vase? I got it in Lisbon at this AMAZING interiors store called Area (along with a few other things...) I could have bought the whole store. Anyway enough rambling...here's the how-to for the flowers. Let me know if you give them a go! x
First cut a variety of squares from pretty paper that range between 4-7cms.
1// Fold the square of paper in half diagonally.
2// Half again. 3// And again...
6// Once you have your flowers play around with what colour and patterns work well together and then pick a button for the center. Just remember that you need your wire to fit through the button holes.
7// Layer up your flowers and button then using a large needle punch guide holes through the button and paper.
8// Thread your wire through the back of the flower, through the button and then fold over through the other button hole. (This is a bit tricky depending on the thickness of the wire.)
9// Poke wire through to the back and wrap around the longer length of wire to secure.
Arrange in your chosen vase/jug/jar and admire!
