Lace-like texture that adds visual interest

I wasn't able to fit this tutorial in my book, Paper Flower Art, so here it is as an online tutorial! These 5-petal tiny flowers came about when I was looking for a way to make an alternative to baby’s breaths for a client's bouquet reproduction. I wanted to make really tiny white flowers that would have a similar visual texture as baby’s breath or lace flowers. Because of how small I wanted the flowers to be, I started to think of ways of making them without having to glue on each petal individually and this technique has worked really well for me. I like to vary the size of the groupings for scale and stagger the little flowers within the bunch to create dimension.

What You'll Learn in this Mini-Course

  • Two ways of attaching the flower stems together.

  • To use the fan technique to create smooth petals.

  • To perfect free-hand cutting with ease and confidence.

  • The crepe tape options that match the paper covered stem wire colour.

FAQ

  • What type of tools & materials do you use in this course?

    I use mainly crepe paper as my main medium, which you can purchase online at various suppliers. My favourite suppliers are listed in the Toolbox section. I also use stem wires and sometimes floral tape which can be purchased at floral supply wholesalers, baking/cake supply stores and even big box stores like Michaels and Joanns. Everything else can be easily purchased from art or craft stores, online, or you likely have them at home. For most materials, I provide direct links to where you can buy them inside the course.

  • When does the course start and finish?

    The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

  • How long do I have access to the course?

    The short answer - Forever. The long answer - You’ll have access to the course videos and content forever as long as Crafted to Bloom exists, even if the online course platform changes.

  • Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?

    Unfortunately, due to the nature of digital products, I cannot offer a refund. That said, I just know that you'll learn something! I design every one of my flower online course so that I can share new and fresh techniques with you. I hate repeating myself.

  • I’ve never tried making paper flowers. Is this for me?

    You're in the right place - this course is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more ways of using crepe paper and acquire skills that can carry you through to other paper flowers. This course provides step-by-step instructions as I guide you at each step through video instruction. You get to watch me make these tiny blooms up-close while I thoroughly explain every action I take. If you didn’t catch something - anything - the first time, you can watch and re-watch the videos.

  • I'm an experienced paper floral artist. Would I still benefit from this course?

    Absolutely! I get asked how I make these tiny blooms all the time from more experienced paper flower artists and it's because they just love learning new skills. Believe me, you'll pick up a few tricks that you likely want to use for other small flowers.

  • Can I sell the flower I make from this online course?

    Yes, you’re welcome to make this flower and sell it. All I ask is if someone, like a customer, ask you how you learned to make the flower, that you could acknowledge that you learned it from me and give credit where it is due.

  • Can I teach this flower to other people?

    If you know someone who would like to learn how to make this paper flower, I would ask you to encourage them to sign up for this course. Please do not share the access information with third parties. You paid for access to it, and so should they. I’ve put in a lot of effort to designing this course and the intellectual property connected to this course, the materials, and the techniques are mine. Similarly, you are absolutely not permitted to teach this paper flower for monetary gain without expressed written permission from me. If you are interested in re-teaching this paper flower I do offer licensing options. Read more about this in the Terms & Conditions page: https://www.craftedtobloom.com/terms-and-conditions
