Some of you may remember this hellebore we made for one of our previous Member Make workshops. But as you know, we are always experimenting and reinventing how we make flowers! For this month’s workshop, we will be showing you how to combine two different types of paper to make a crepe paper and frosted paper hellebore.
As always, you can get ready for the workshop ahead of time by grabbing the supplies you need from our list below. Then join our YouTube Live on December 23rd at 11:00 am PT , or you can watch the video recording later.
The hellebore is one of our favorite winter flowers to craft. For this updated version, we used our double-sided white for the petals, the lightest white gold frosted paper in our metallic golds pack and our extra-fine crepe paper in fern for the centers, and our extra-fine in juniper for the leaves.
We are mixing in the frosted paper to add more detail and structure to these small flowers. And we are also adding color by using PanPastel on the petals and a brush marker on the centers.
If you haven’t joined one of our live workshops before, make sure to read the steps below. Otherwise you can skip on down to the tools and materials list.
