...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.

Thank you so much! :rose: Of course you should try it! Paper is amazing material... I tried to make papercraft when I was 31, and now I'm a fan of it! I'm so lazy though... :D
