A friend of mine taught me how to fold some kind of origami flower when I was helping her with making her wedding decorations and it got me interested to try for myself:




I glued the flower pieces to silver foil-like pipe cleaners, folded over in half to be a little sturdier.

But then I decided not only to make some more, out of scrapbooking paper (I used pages from an old copy of Jane Eyre for the first two)... I decided I'd make a full bouquet for many boss! I'm giving it to her Monday and can't wait to see if she likes it!!




I used Elmer's glue to put the pieces together but then hot glue to put the pieces on the painted dowel rods.

There's a pretty good tutorial for making these here:

I will say that by the last (8th) flower my hands were rally stating to hurt but not so bad I had trouble finishing them all and they took about 3-ish hours as I kept getting distracted.

Thank you! I'm trying to figure out if I should put beads in the centers or just leave them open...
