My sister’s birthday is today. So what better topic to post about? Dress up your next present with these beautiful flowers ( using this easy crepe paper flowers tutorial ) — an unexpected surprise on any gift.

You will need: navy blue and green crepe paper, cardstock paper, scissors, hot glue gun

crepe paper flowers

1 – From the cardstock paper, cut out a 1 inch circle. Cut one slit to the middle of your circle. From the navy blue crepe paper, cut a dozen 2 1/2 inches x 3 inches tear drop shaped petals and 6 petals approximately 1 1/2 inches x 2 inches. From the green crepe paper, cut a 3/4 inch x 3 inches rectangle and cut slits down one long end to create a fray.

2 – Shape the cardstock circle into a cone shape by pulling part of the paper over from the slit. Glue the cone shape in place.

3 – Working from the inside of the cone, glue your larger petals into place. Work your way around the flower until you have 6 petals glued.

4 – Glue the remaining 6 larger petals over the first set of petals. Offset your petals to cover up any gaps.

5 – Finish your petals by gluing the 6 small petals on the top.

6 – Take your frayed piece of green crepe paper and roll it up. Slightly mess up the frays to give it more of a natural look, and glue it into the center of your flower.
