For Emily's birthday party we all worked together to make these pretty flowers.
The instructions are here at Folding Trees and I love these samples too. One day I'd love to make more and join them together to make a kusudama ball.
They were not at all hard, but you do need to allow time for the glue to dry. We used bobby pins to hold the petals in place as the glue dried. The flowers are especially pretty made with double-sided paper. Some scrapbook papers were a little too thick to work with easily, however.
They looked so pretty scattered down the table amongst the desserts for Emily's birthday.
