Ready to see these gorgeous Crepe Paper Ornamental Cabbages in action? Then, join us in our live workshop on Friday, February 16th at 12 Noon PST. Don’t fret if you miss it – the video will be available here afterwards.
Forget your average cabbage from the grocery store! Ornamental cabbages are the flamboyant fashionistas of the garden, boasting vibrant rosettes in hues of pink, purple, red, and white, all nestled within ruffled skirts. Though measuring a foot wide and 15 inches tall, these edible beauties (with a slight caveat – they’re a tad bitter!) are best served as decorative delights, not dinner fare. Imagine them as the eye-catching accessory to your flower bed or a colorful garnish after a quick double-boil to temper the bitterness.
To achieve a lifelike quality for our crepe paper cabbages, we’ll be using colorful panpastels and colored pencils, transforming ordinary paper into miniature masterpieces. But, don’t be intimidated by the seemingly complex technique – our live workshop will unravel every step and trick you need to achieve similar results.
Once your paper cabbage blooms to life, its beauty will leave you in awe. Whether you perch it proudly on a sunlit windowsill or showcase it atop your mantle, this charming creation will infuse your home with the irresistible spirit of spring.
As always, we can’t wait to see your magnificent creations come to life! So, don’t forget to share your masterpiece with our vibrant crafting community or tag us on Instagram using #MemberMake. Get ready to unleash your boundless creativity and dive headfirst into spring with this delightful project!
