    I think this method will help me use some way to fine crepe paper I have handy at home… I am going to fuse two layers together and make it a bit sturdier , one layer doesn’t hold the shape even on very small petals, it was so frustrating that I put that paper away in a drawer for years…. now I see a hope , many thanks!

    Absolutely love this technique, it opens up a world of options. Especially like the idea for making leaves with wire centres, so much easier than using tacky glue. Thank you

    Wow! This is great. I just made the laminated crepe and cut the leaves for the Spring summit. I used my iron set on “linen” and it worked beautifully.

      @Kathryn Caulfield

      This is such a wonderful way to make a gorgeous double-sided crepe. I was excited to share it again in the Spring Summit.

    I laminated my crepe paper with my easy press, I have the smaller one, the heat only gets up to 350 and it doesn’t bond completely. Do I press longer or use the iron? I also have the very hand mini can this be used?
    I sent a photo of my Parrot Tulips to my son and he thought they were real flowers.
    Loved everything we learned in this class. The only thing I haven’t completed I’d the branch. I am just finishing the Orchids.

    1. Lia Griffith October 4, 2021 at 5:51pm

      Look at the instructions for the Easy Press because you can adjust the temp. It took me a minute to figure that one out. lol.

      Love hearing the story about the tulips and that you are enjoying the class. 🙂

    Lia & Team.

    Really want to thank you for your great ideas and shared experiences you provide. After 2+ years of subscription I have learnt a lot on crafting, mainly with crepe paper, and have expanded my possibilities on using and desling with different materials. This particular mini course has been reslly useful for me to create my own flowers, which, due to lack of double sided crepe colors, was previously not able to create. With this great tip, I’ve got a lot of inspiration and creativity back.

    All the best from London 🙂

    You two amaze me! Lucky me I have the easy press. Love the new wired leaf technique. I have made some of your double sided crepe paper with my iron, next time I get out the big boy!

      @Donna Hutchinson

      Ooh yes!

  16. Rebecca August 20, 2021 at 3:36pm

    How long do you leave the easy press on the crepe paper.

    1. Lia Griffith August 20, 2021 at 3:45pm

      30 seconds 🙂
