frosted paper potted tulips

Tulip-git to quit

Tulip season is upon us! It always feels like it goes so fast, which is why we like to make these flowers out of paper and felt. This way you can enjoy them for much longer than one or two months.

Unlike the other tulips we have made, we decided to place our frosted paper tulips in a pot. If you’ve taken our Crepe Paper Flowers master class, you will know exactly how we do this! If you don’t want to pot your flowers, you could always place them in a vase or add them to a paper flower arrangement.

Skill level: Intermediate as it takes some work with the curling tool to get a good shape without wrinkling the paper.

Crafting tips: Be gentle when curling the petals so you don’t wrinkle or rip the paper. Also, make sure to apply the PanPastel shading after assembling and shaping the petals to avoid transferring the color to your fingers. If you want to be sure there is no color transfer, you could always use a spray fixative.
