Your August Collection is here! And we are starting it off with everything you need to get ready for this month’s live Member Make workshop. As always, Meagan has designed some gorgeous flowers for us. And I can’t wait to learn how to make these crepe paper hydrangeas along with the rest of you!
Ready to get started? We will be going live on August 14th to craft these crepe paper hydrangeas. Members can join us live at 11:00 a.m. PST or watch the video later. In the meantime, you can get prepared with our tools & materials list, flower pattern, and photo tutorial!
Hydrangeas are such sweet little blooms. Other than this free starter flower pattern we created for beginners, we have not made any crepe paper hydrangeas like this before! In the past, I have made my hydrangeas using frosted paper. So I’m excited to try something new and see how gorgeous they look when made out of extra-fine crepe paper.
One tip we have for these crepe paper hydrangeas is to use a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut your flower pieces. Before I got my Cricut, I used to hand-cut my hydrangeas, so it is definitely possible to cut this paper flower by hand! But it will be a lot easier and faster with a machine.
Another tip is to use the Designer Master Color Tool Spray on your crepe paper hydrangea flowers. While we love PanPastel pigments and use them on a lot of our paper flowers, it would take a lot of time to color each flower individually with PanPastel. The tool spray is much faster and will make your blooms look even more beautiful!
If you haven’t joined us for Member Make before, be sure to read the instructions on how to participate. Otherwise, scroll on down for the tools and materials list plus the flower pattern.
