How to make an Accordion Flower

8 Sep

Designer Sarah has this great tutorial to share with you guys…

This creates a 1 3/4″ inch flower.

The wider the flower, the longer the paper strips will need to be.

1. cut 2 strips of paper to 3/4″x4 1/2″

2. fold each strip like a accordian

3. adhere both strips together into one long strip

4. bend and curve the long strip so that you can adhere the two ends

5. adhere the flower to a paper circle so that it holds its shape and ad a center

Thanks for sharing this fabulous trick.

    I love the star you added to the middle-it makes these little “flowers” versatile enough even for boy projects! Great job, Sarah!
