Cheerful Crepe Paper Sunflowers
A free guide to making happy and vibrant crepe paper sunflower blooms
Here's a FREE online course just for you! I'm showing you how I make my fluffy, cheerful sunflowers from 180gsm Italian Crepe Paper. My style tends to be very whimsical and vibrant, and I hope you'll like this updated version of these sunnies.
Who is this course for?
This course is specially designed for beginners, so everyone is welcomed to join in for a fun crafting session!
What is your teaching style?
I love teaching and I'm here to guide you through the basics, and to also encourage you to be creative and experiment on your own! In the course, I'll give you suggestions on how to vary the design, so please don't worry about following the instructions to a tee. Your flower may not look exactly like mine in the end, but that's exactly the beauty of paper blooms - you get to put your own stamp on your handmade creations! *wink* *smiley face*
Where do I get the materials?
I've added links and my local sources in the text within the course, but I also have kits available that accompanies this video! To purchase a kit, feel free to visit my Etsy Page.
How do I care for my crepe paper blooms?
If possible, please keep your crepe paper flowers away from moisture, direct sunlight, or any harsh indoor lighting... it's paper after all! Nonetheless, fading is quite normal especially for the darker shades. You may consider purchasing a UV Protection spray too if you'd like to avoid any fading (though the faded shades do have a nice vintage feel to them too)
How do I show off my completed blooms?
I would love to see your creations! Do feel free to tag me @misspetalandbloom if you're on instagram.It would be wonderful if no one copies, reproduces, redistributes, or resells any part of MP&B’s videos/pattern/ templates/ instructions. I sincerely hope that out of mutual respect to me as an artist and instructor, that you would not take this content and teach it to others for profit.
However, you are more than welcome to sell the completed bloom. If you don't mind, accreditation to Miss Petal & Bloom would be awesome (i.e. just a note somewhere to credit me and the video, as simple as that!). I would truly appreciate this so much, because your support and acknowledgement allows me to keep doing what I love to do. :)
