How To: Make an easy paper flower with cut paper

Make an easy paper flower with cut paper

In this video you can learn how make an easy paper flower. Cut the card stock into strips of paper that are either 1/8 inch, 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch wide. The width doesn't really matter, but all the strips must be the same size. Use scissors to cut slits 3/4 of the way through the paper strip, creating a fringe along the entire edge of the piece of paper. The smaller the distance between cuts, the more realistic and delicate the flower will appear. Insert the end of the paper fringe 1/4 inch through the eye of the yarn needle. Hold the end of the paper tightly while wrapping the paper strip around the needle. The needle gives you the ability to create a tightly-wrapped coil. Manipulate the needle out of the middle of the paper roll carefully without disrupting the coil. Glue the end of the fringe to the outside of the flower. Keep the fringe tightly coiled in a circular fashion for a chrysanthemum look, or gently flatten the fringe toward the paper background to give the flower a daisy-like effect. Glue a sequin, pearl or gemstone to the middle of the flattened flower. Hot glue dries quickly and works best.
