more paper flowers
by next june you will have seen every paper flower there is to see on the internet. i promise. i bought some crepe paper the other day to try out the difference between crepe and tissue. i prefer crepe. it is like the difference between bad toilet paper and good toilet paper or pleather and leather. crepe is so much easier to work with and you can shape it to look more like real petals and flowers. as an example, i've put some pics up of Martha's crepe papers. she sells kits for making crepe paper flowers but luckily she puts the instructions on how to make them online. so for those who diy, we can use our own supplies and make them ourselves rather than having to buy the kit. i'm really adoring the peonies and dogwoods.
