For our July Member Make workshop, Meagan will be showing us how to make this beautiful crepe paper purple ranunculus. This is a more full and fluffy ranunculus than we have done in the past. And it also includes buds and leaves to add to your arrangement.
To get prepared for our live workshop on July 16th, check out our tools and materials list below.
If you’ve made a ranunculus before, you know this flower has a lot of petals to layer. But we think it’s worth it! For this crepe paper purple ranunculus, you can cut the small petals by hand if you would like. However, we do recommend using a Maker or Cameo 4 for the leaves if you have one.
Don’t forget, you can always use another color of extra-fine crepe paper and experiment with how you color your petals. In our workshop, we will be showing you how to use PanPastel specifically to add more depth to your flower.
Skill level: Intermediate
Crafting tips: We will be using all white glue just like in the last Member Make, so applying all of the (many) petals may be difficult for beginners. You must be careful to use small amounts of glue and allow it to dry/tack up if the paper becomes too wet.
