ACCORDION FLOWERS

Welcome back Friends!!! Today am posting a tutorial on accordion flowers.



MATERIALS NEEDED:
  1. Patterned paper or colour paper . Paper cut from magazines can also be used
  2. glue
  3. scissors
  4. scale or inch tape
PROCEDURE:



I used a tissue paper here. Initially try it out with thick paper as tissue papers are very light and may tear while creasing.

Here i used a pen knife to make a crease every 1/2 an inch.


Trim off any excess of paper after folding.



When you take away your finger, the flower again pops up to its circular shape. In order to keep it in the flattened position we must stick a piece of paper in the center.

The piece of paper used can be of any shape or it can be any embellishment used for decorating the flower.




These accordian flowers can  be used for decorating scrapbooks , greeting cards,wall decor , earrings etc. I have made a greeting card/ wall decor using these accordion flowers.


The tutorial of Handmade Rakhi using these flowers will be posted soon.

Have a nice day!
Happy crafting!!
