Title: lovely tissue paper carnations
Post by: planetjune on August 04, 2008 06:24:28 AM
I wanted to make some realistic paper flowers, and this is what I came up with:

I coloured the edges of the tissue paper petals to make them stand out and add realism:

I also used floral tape to make the stems look natural.

What a wonderful idea, they look beautiful! And very realistic, I love how full and puffy they are.
