Paper Flowers for Banner 4 freebie  

It's time to change our very large welcome banner in the fellowship area at church to a spring/summer theme. Pastor Ken and I have been working hard (and spending a fortune) planning a very special event for April 22nd as a community outreach. We are having a night of teaching about the Passover as it reveals Jesus Christ to us. We are going to have the Passover/Seder dinner along with the teaching so that everyone can experience this amazing insight that every Christian should have. You'll never see the Lord's Supper/Communion the same!
Given that we hope to have lots of visitors, I wanted the new welcome banner to be very bright and cheerful - flowers seemed the thing for spring and summer. I didn't want to paint again. It just didn't see special enough, so I've been designing and making all manner of paper flowers - 27 different blossoms in all. My table was a mountain of lovely blossoms - so happy to look at and that's not even all of them! I thought you might like to know how to make some of them, so for 27 days I'll be posting a tutorial for one of these lovely blossoms!
I love, love, love these flowers! I used washed out used plastic communion cups for the centers of these lovely flowers. I took an old book and cut lengths of it a bit wider than the cup. Cut narrow slits in the length of the paper. Run a small bead of low melt glue along the bottom edge of the communion cup and attach the edge of the papers. It should look like this. Too cute!Cut two lengths of tissue paper half the width you want your flower to be and then cut scallops in them. Put a dot of low melt glue on the edge of each petal and then attach it immediately next to the one you just attached to the cup. This gathers the petals very tightly around the cup.When you lay the petals out you see this lovely flower - but the center is transparent.Cut a piece of paper and glue to cover the bottom center of the flower. I used black on this one.Don't you just LOVE these?!If you like it well enough to download, please leave me a comment at the bottom of this post as I have disabled 4shared comments.
