And if you love paper flowers but you don't have time to make one, ask Chantal from Dragonfly Expression to make you a beautiful "bouquet" with her paper creations.

  6. I was obsessed with paper flowers when I was a child. These would have blown my eight-year-old mind.

  7. I was hoping to make it for Valentines Day BUT can not find any crepe paper. I went to Michaels in Ontario Canada and they say they no longer carry it. Does anyone know of another source

  9. what is the difference between crepe paper, and normal paper? are the petals supposed to get bigger as you go outwards?

  10. Crepe paper is tissue paper that’s been coated with sizing and then “creped” to create gathers. Sizing is a material such as glue, gelatin, gum, or starch, added to paper pulp or cloth to add sheen and stiffness, among other things. This gives crepe paper a distinct texture and feel, and one quite different from untreated tissue paper.
    For the petals size, you should check the tutorial to make sure (see the link on the post).
