DIY CRAFT KIT:
You can choose from three designs: classic, romantic or contemporary.
We will be using the classic design.
Once you choose a design cut out both blossoms, the large and the small one.
Your craft kit contains three sheets of A6 pearlescent paper.
If you are using your own paper, cut the standard paper sheet (A4) into quarters (A6)
Place the large blossom very close to a corner of the pearlescent sheet.
Next, draw a line around the blossom, using a pencil.
Move the template around, drawing four large blossoms, each close to a corner.
Then, draw four small blossoms in the central part of the page.
Cut out all blossoms, one by one.
Use the two remaining sheets of pearlescent paper to make more blossoms.
We are making twelve blossoms in total.
Bend each petal slightly,
using your hands.
Apply a small amount of glue over the centre of the large blossoms.
Place the small blossoms on top of the large blossoms.
Apply a small amount of glue over the centre of each of the small blossoms.
Place a diamante (or a pearl) on top.
Let the glue dry.
Choose an object you would like to decorate.
This could be a branch, a seating plan or napkin holders.
Use glue (or invisible tape) to attach the back of each blossom to the object you are decorating. We used a branch in this tutorial.
