Paper Flowers for Banner 9 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!
This is such a gorgeous flower! It starts with a circle of paper. Cut six slits from the edge of the circle toward the center. Put a dot of low melt glue on the right edge corner of a section and stick the left edge corner of the section to it's right on top of it. Work your way around the circle to form the center of the flower. If you want a small center, make your slits longer toward the center. If you want a wider center, make smaller slits toward the center.
Cut two lengths of tissue paper as half as wide as you want your flower to be. Cut scallops at the ends.Put a dot of low melt glue on the edge of one side of a petal and stick them together forming a pleat in the center of the petal. Do each petal this way on both strips of petals.Now cut narrow slits in a length of paper that is much narrower than the petals. This picture shows large slits - this flower needs very narrow short slits.
Finger gather them tightly as you glue to the edge of the center piece. (remember this picture shows a MUCH larger version). Go around the center several times to make a thick, fluffy feature around the center of the flower.
Take the petals and gather them tightly as you glue to the edge of the center piece making sure that the pleats in the petals face the back and the proper side faces the front of the flower.
This is how it will look when you lay the petals out toward the sides.
