Yes, we are still doing our monthly Member Make workshop in addition to our Spring Summit! This month Meagan will be showing us how to make these gorgeous crepe paper southern magnolias.
To get ready for our workshop, gather the tools and materials you need below. Then join us live on April 16th at 11 am PT.
We have made quite a few magnolias over the last few years. But as always, we are refining our techniques! Meagan designed a new pattern for us and will be showing us how to add more detail to our petals with PanPastel. We will also be using the Colortool spray to color our magnolia leaves and give them that gorgeous, rich shade of brown on the undersides.
Because the centers of this magnolia are more intricate, we recommend using a Maker or Cameo 4 for this flower. But you can always use our template to cut by hand. If you have not joined a Member Make workshop before, be sure to read the steps below.
Skill level: Intermediate
Crafting tip: Be gentle when stretching the petals. It is easy to over stretch double-sided crepe paper, and it will wrinkle if over stretched.
