Inkling: crepe paper flowers

Crepe paper flowers have been on my to-make list for awhile. I originally saw a tutorial on The Bride’s Café and the flowers they made are just beautiful.

The flowers are easy to make because the crepe paper is very forgiving. It scrunches and stretches very easily and can be formed into fairly realistic-looking petals.

You can find the tutorial here.

I made all yellow flowers and used my crepe paper flowers to decorate a basket for Easter.

The basket is empty – waiting for the Easter Bunny to fill it with goodies.
I can’t wait….

    1. Hi Alexis,
      The white paper is basket filling. You can buy it just about anywhere especially around Easter time. Sometimes it's called paper shreds. I didn't buy mine. It came in a gift basket and I saved it. Thanks for visiting.
