Tips & Sources
A hot glue gun can be substituted for craft glue; however, if using craft glue, make sure to give extra time in the drying process. For our art markers, we used Copic Markers V09, RV69, and Y15. For crepe paper, we used our Sangria, Cypress, and White, but feel free to play around with other colors to give your petunias a personal touch!
