Spring bouquet by el-ruben Spring bouquet by el-ruben
...Yeah, I'm obviously not good at titles... :D

My dear deviants, I wish you happy and joyful spring time, and give you these handmade paper flowers (well, because it's still too cold for the real ones)! :heart:

Thank you so much! :heart: I'm really sorry for such a late reply. :confused:

These are made of office color paper. You'll need to cut paper stripes (mine were about 2,5 cm width) on one side, slightly curl the area you cut (i used a pair of scissors for it), then roll them around a needle or a toothpick. I used wire for stems, I wrapped it with green paper stripes and then sticked leaves on it. The hardest part was to attach the flower to the stem and hide the joint. :)

woah that's alot of work :faint: Anyway, after seeing your artwork I searched a bit. Then I knew that its called Kusudama, the name then helped me alot as I found many Kusudama tutorials on deviantart. They only explained the flower though, so your explanation will be really helpful in making a bouquet. Thanks :tighthug: & sorry for the late reply.

Absolutely beautiful!!! I am a pretty crafty person myself, tho I have never tried making papercraft but would like to try now that I have seen this! I make wedding boquets, corsages and boutineers from time to time and very much enjoy it. If I could master making paper flowers like this, it might make for an interesting, long lasting wedding boquet for someone who liked these kind of flowers.

I'll try to describe it, though my English is not good enough. :)

You'll need to cut paper stripes (mine were about 2,5 cm width) on one edge and then slightly curl the area you cut (i used a pair of scissors for it), then roll them around a needle or a toothpick. I used wire for stems, I wrapped it with green paper stripes and then sticked leaves on it. The hardest part was to attach the flower to the stem and hide the joint.

Hope this would be useful for you. :)
