- Lia Griffith Extra-Fine Crepe Paper – Blush, Chiffon, Cypress or Olive
- 18-Gauge Green Paper Covered Wire
- Floral Tape — Moss
- 10mm Cotton Spun Paper Balls or 10mm Wood Beads

- Gather the materials and tools listed above.
- Cut all pieces according to the pattern. NOTE: Match the grain of the paper to the marks on the patterns.
- With needle nose pliers, bend the tip of the wire and slide it onto a wooden bead so that the bend fits snugly in the hole.
- Stretch the oval pieces to form a cup and then place them over the wired balls. Twist at the base to form a snug fit, then glue the flaps to hold it in place.

For this paper wild rose, Lia used craft glue, however you can also use hot glue. If using craft glue, make sure to give your project plenty of time to dry along the way. We used our crepe paper in the colors Blush, Chiffon and Cypress, but feel free to play around with colors and get creative!
