Paper Flowers for Banner 21 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 flower starts with a washed, used plastic communion cup.

Cut a circle of paper of your choice about the diameter that will be near the cup size when it wraps around the cup.

Sit the cup in the center of the circle and work the paper until it comes up around the cup and forms five sections. Then attach with low melt glue.

Cut a length of tissue paper half the width you want your flower to be and cut medium slits down one side. I cut much thinner strips than in this picture and my paper was much wider for long slender petals.
Finger gather it tightly and attach to the bottom edge of the cup with low melt glue.
You end up with this exotic, softly flowing blossom!And here it is again.
