Step One: Cut the Flowers

First, cut the flowers using a Cricut Maker machine, designing a continuous petal technique to make the blooms, which consists of a strip of crepe paper cut with a fringe that you will later shape and glue together.

Attach a piece of crepe paper to the Cricut light grip cutting mat, and secure the ends with painter’s tape, making sure the paper won’t move during the cutting process.

Note: if you don’t own a Cricut machine, this step can be done manually using a pair of scissors ,experimenting with different shapes and fringes.

Step Two: Create the Flowers

Layer all the cut crepe paper petals and weave the excess carefully. You will repeat this process with all the flowers you cut.

Then firmly wrap the strip of petals and start adding hot glue around your forming bloom. With any excess crepe paper you have around, cut a strip and create your stamen. Attach a pipe cleaner to the back with the hot glue and repeat this process for each flower.

Step Three: Assemble the Bouquet

Finish arranging your beautiful paper flowers into a creative bouquet, varying the colours and heights and enhancing it by incorporating leftover dry flowers and foliage, making this combination of natural elements a stunning and unique aesthetic for Valentine’s Day.

Wrap the bouquet with Kraft paper for a rustic, handmade touch and secure it with colourful velvet ribbons, creating a whimsical touch to your gift.
