Crumpled Up: How to Make Paper Flowerscomments (14) May 18th, 2013
When all 8 petals have been creased, turn the flower over as illustrated. This is the basic flower shape we'll be working with. Repeat these steps to make 5 large flowers.
Paint your flowers. I chose vivid blues and purples and painted the edges of the flowers a different color than the faces of the petals. You may choose whatever palette most appeals to you, but I intended to mount these all on a white background, so I choose vivid colors to enhance the contrast and help accentuate the irregular edges of each piece.
For the smaller flowers, I used the same technique as above, only this time I didn't remove the wedges between the petals and I creased each petal all the way down its center instead of just its tip. Again, I chose to paint the edges and the faces of each petal using different colors.
