Volume Flowers

Our bouquet consists of tulips 1,5 cm with the stalk 5 cm long. So, the frame for the bouquet should be small — 10 cm x 15 cm. It`s desirable that the frame be bulging with 2,5 cm in depth.

You`ll need:

colored paper strips 1,5 cm broad for flowers
paper for pastels for stalks
instrument for twisting
PVA glue
frame

Making:

1. Glue by four and five strips to make a long one. The rolls consisting of four strips will be for inner petals, the rolls of five strips — for outer ones.

If you want your tulip to be motley, you can twist the paper of two colors at once.

2. Untwist the roll a bit so that it should have ho holes and give it the shape of a tulip petal: squeeze the roll middle and you`ll have a bulging petal for a tulip. Fix the tip and put PVA glue onto the inner side.

It`s nice but a bit complicated. It`s not for me.
But still the flowers are cool!
