Hello, Heather here, the owner and designer behind Especially Paper. I've just published my very first class on Skillshare, a learning community for creators. I'd love it if you'd join the class on crafting crepe paper flowers — the first 50 students can enroll for free!
Using simple flower-making techniques, turn crepe paper into a flower inspired by icelandic poppies. Paper flowers are often crafted on flower wire to use in arrangements, but this method creates a flat-back flower. It’s a little easier for a first flower and having a flat back is useful for displaying on a wall, setting on a plate for a place setting, or — like the example in this class — adding a clip to the back. These would be lovely incorporated into a wedding reception or bridal shower.
The class is split into short video segments so you can watch a bit at a time or skip ahead to the techniques you'd most like to view. Plus, multiple templates are included with the class including a PDF for hand-cutting pieces, an SVG file to use with Cricut Explore and a DXF file to use with Silhouette Studio.
