I made these flowers from old magazine pages and a brown paper bag. I am trying to think of some ways to incorporate them into some jewellery but they are quiet fragile.

There is something that people dip origami in to make it more durable for jewelry, I'm not sure what it is, but I'm sure if you do a search, you can find it! These are very pretty. Smiley

tried to make the flowers such as the ribbon? How much time do you need to complete the single rubella?

10 minutes at the most to make the flower. I'll do a tutorial and post it.

What about encasing them in something like this?

Or there's stabilizing with something like decoupage glue or lacquer. A paper flower bib necklace would be super chic, they look so delicate!
