    Fold the piece of crepe paper twice lengthwise; you now have four layers. Cut fringes along one length through all four layers as shown in the photo. Cut the fringes with an approx. 3 mm gap between each, 5 cm from the edge.

    Now roll up this piece of crepe paper tightly as shown in the photo. Roll it between your hands to thin out the fringes.

    Print and cut out the template which is available as a PDF file for this idea. Cut out all the parts for a flower from crepe paper. Remember to cut out following the stretch direction illustrated on each template. The PDF file includes templates for large and small petals. You will need five flowers for this wreath – large and small flowers. You will need to cut out the petals and the leaves from crepe paper. You will also need a piece of crepe paper for the stamen and a piece of 1 cm wide x 20 cm long green crepe paper to cover the stalk. You may use floral tape.
