Due to popular demand, we are showing you how to make crepe paper cornflowers (and buds) for this month’s Member Make workshop! Many of you voted during last month’s workshop for this flower over the Claire de Lune peony. And though we love both flowers, we’re excited to show you how to make a completely new crepe paper flower that we’ve never made before.
If you plan on joining this month’s workshop, make sure to check out our supplies list below. We will be going live on March 24th at 11:00 am PT!
Once considered a field weed, cornflowers are now popular in gardens and make a great filler for floral bouquets. They are often referred to as “bachelor’s button” because men used to wear them in the buttonhole of their suit to indicate they were in love or ready for courting. As a result, they are now used as boutonnieres in weddings.
We also love what these flowers symbolize — positive hope for the future. During our live workshop, Meagan will show you how to recreate the wild, yet delicate look of these crepe paper cornflowers using new techniques. We hope you will join us in making these flowers, whether you come to the live workshop or watch the recording here later.
