For our April Member Make, we will be teaching you how to make crepe paper lisianthus flowers!
If you haven’t heard us talk about Member Make yet, here’s what you need to know. Every month we do a special live workshop for members of our crafting community. If you’re a member, you will get a special YouTube link each month to join us for our monthly creative challenge.
We are so excited to make these crepe paper lisianthus flowers today. And we hope you are too! For this month’s Member Make, we decided to do something a little different.
To make it a little easier on you, we have put all the crepe paper colors you’ll need to make these crepe paper lisianthus flowers into an April Member Make bundle in our online craft shop. This way, you don’t have to buy a bunch of different packs for just one or two colors! (UPDATE: The bundle has sold out! Visit our shop to buy each color– links listed below under Materials!)
Ready to join our April Member Make? Here’s how it works:
