frosted and crepe paper starflowers

You’re a star

To give our paper starflowers a bit more shine, we chose to craft them using frosted text weight paper. This type of paper has a slight sheen to it, which will give your paper flowers some beautiful depth and dimension. And by using text weight instead of cardstock, they will be easier to shape. 

Along with the frosted paper, we added just a bit of gold crepe paper for the small stamen piece. You will also see in the tutorial how we drew on veins with a marker and curled our petals out. For the final touch, we added a bunch of paper leaves that stick straight up and then curled the rest out so they spill over the vase.
