Tutorial Wednesday - Crepe paper flowers with Epiphany

Hello all and Happy 4th of July!

I can almost hear the fireworks from here!  Having spent a few years living in Florida as a child I remember the wonderful patriotic celebrations, there is nothing like a July 4th party!

Today is tutorial Wednesday at ScrapMuch?, and as I always do I am going to share here with you a fun way to create a flower for your project using crepe paper and an Epiphany.

 First, gather your supplies.  You will need crepe paper (any colour, I chose white as it will give me the option of misting it if I choose.), a flower centre (the Epiphany is perfect for this as you can coordinate your flower center with your project, and a punched circle a little bit smaller than what you want your finished flower to measure.
 Cover your punched circle with tacky adhesive of some sort, with liquied glue or really sticky glue dots work well.
 Now start pleating the crepe paper around the circle.
 Keep going.....
 An now you are done, cut off the excess.
Add your flower centre and voila!  You can see this make a fairly substantial sized flower, you can make a smaller one by folding the crepe paper lengthwise in half, or a two layer flower by folding the crepe paper a little shy of halfway.

Go ahead, give it a try... it's quick and easy and you probably already have everything you need!

Thanks for visiting!
