Pretty in Pink – Crepe Flowers Tutorial

Last week I was playing around with crepe paper and managed to make some of my own flowers.  I liked them enough that I went out a bought a couple more colors of crepe paper and swooned over the pink.  So here is a pink card from me (surprise!).  I used one of the new Flourishes sets called Lace Edges that features this exquisite lace!  For the sentiment I used Flourishes I Love Roses set.   I layered Spellbinders™ Labels Five on the top of the card, Spellbinders™ Grand 12″ Lace Border in the middle and Spellbinders™ Labels Four on the bottom. I finished by attaching two leaves from the Spellbinders™ Sunflower Set Two Set.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Flourishes Lace Edges, Flourishes I Love Roses
Paper:  K&Co.Lovely, The Paper Company – Blonde Columns, Bazzill
Ink:  Colorbox Chalk Ink – Pastel Pink
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Labels Five, Spellbinders™ Labels Four, Spellbinders™ Sunflower Set Two,  Spellbinders™ Grand 12″ Lace Border, Pearls, Ribbon

Here is the video tutorial in case you’d like to make your own flowers:

Thanks for stopping in to see me, I’m still gathering blog candy and hope to have it posted by tomorrow.

    Thanks, Becca! Love the crepe paper flowers and your tutorial. This brings back many memories of childhood crafts using crepe paper. Do they still sell crepe paper in the long folded sheets? If so, you could cut your “ribbons” of paper to any width.ReplyCancel

    Love your video on the crepe paper flowers. Looks so easy and what a great 3D effect on one’s card. Your video was very easy to follow, and now I will have to make a trip to the store. Glad to hear that the dollar store sells it, too, which means I will get more colors. Thanks again for sharing your great idea!

    Hi Becca –

    Wonderful tutorial! We must be on the same wavelength. I was out at the store on Saturday and picked up a roll of pink crepe paper. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but it just looked so pretty. Subconsciously I must and been channeling you – LOL!

    Your crepe paper flower is so cute. I have some black and gold crepe paper yet in the cupboard from our girls’ high school graduation. I’m going to have to give this a try. Oh wouldn’t black crepe paper flowers be great on an “over the hill” type card? Like you said, the possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing this fun little flower.ReplyCancel
