DIY Giant Paper Flower

I've recently developed an obsession with giant paper flowers! I found this cute DIY tutorial and had to try it out. I didn't have the same materials they used so i replaced metal wires and colored paper with empty tissue rolls and neutrals

Here goes!

Using empty tissue rolls and tape

 Cut in half and roll to make a thin stem for the flower

Tape 4-5 rolls together and the stem is ready

Cut crepe and papyrus paper in different sizes to make the petals

 Starting with the smallest size petals, form a bouquet then keep adding layers . Once done , secure with tape and stick the flower in the stem and you're done!


Try it!

DIY : Bracelet Holder

When it comes to jewelry , bead bracelets are my favorite and i have a pile of them stacked in my drawer.

Since i'm always rushing to get dressed , i always end up wearing the bracelets that are on the surface so my next project is an easy to make bracelet holder .

What i used :
- empty paper rolls
- glue gun and mod podge
- magazine cutouts and beads

Lucky for me the magazine featured many colorful chinese print dresses

 Using mod podge and tissue paper to give it a matt and used look

For the second roll , i cut out the horoscope because i loved my star sign reading.... something about creative skills :)

Then i glued beads around one end of the rolls so that the bracelets won't fall off

What do you think so far???

This is what they look like with the bracelets

I thought they were too pretty to be kept inside a drawer

Try it yourself
