Ashley, from Ash and Crafts, shared this tutorial on how to make peonies out of crepe paper. These are so gorgeous, aren’t they? They would make a fabulous gift for a friend or a loved one.
Ashley says: “These flowers are made out of crepe paper. If you haven’t seen crepe paper before, it is a type of paper that is crinkled. Streamers would be a type of crepe paper, but the crinkles in streamers are much bigger so it is not as stretchy or sculpt-able. When you work with quality crepe paper, it allows you to stretch and sculpt the paper. The advantage of crepe paper over regular paper or tissue paper in flower making is that you can create curves and cups with the crepe paper to closely resemble the natural curves of real petals.”
