I saw this idea over Christmas, a lady at a Christmas craft made these into some Christmas decorations. When I saw them I immediately thought they would be great as flowers. And yes we are still in winter but I always find that by the time I get to February I am in desperate need for some extra colour so these are going to be our winter flowers. And I have to admit I am enjoying having the extra colour in our lounge.
They really are very easy to make.
You start off with some rectangle paper – we have used coloured paper and some old wrapping paper for this.
You then need to start folding the paper. You start with the shortest end in front of you. Make a fold about 2cm wide and then turn the paper over and make another fold. Continue until you come to the end of the paper.
