Step 1: You will need…

  • Crepe and/or tissue paper in the color palette of your choice
  • Toothpicks (or skewers)
  • Scissors
  • Floral tape

To form the center of the flower, cut a length of paper about three inches wide. Fold the paper so that each fold is about ¾” wide. Use sharp scissors to cut a rounded edge.

 

Step 2: When unfolded, paper should have a scalloped edge.

Step 3: Begin rolling scallop in onto itself, pinching about ¼ of the way down from scalloped edge so that paper flares and opens slightly.  Continue until entire length of paper is rolled up. Twist the base of the paper as tightly as possible to form a stem.

Step 4: Using a contrasting color, repeat steps one through seven, placing new paper around already-formed center.  Continue until entire length of paper is rolled up.

 

Step 5:  Stretch floral tape to activate, and wrap tightly around both toothpick and tissue paper until all paper is covered.

Step 6: TADAAAAH ! You can decorate your wedding cake!
