Crêpe paper flowers
Flowers can be found at the local florists or in the wild – and if your fingers are more creative than green, you can also make them yourself. Crêpe paper flowers have become a hit everywhere – especially in the home, where they can be used to decorate vases, windowsills and wreaths. The flowers, which are sometimes called paper flowers as well as crêpe flowers, are just as beautiful and decorative as the real thing – and they're easier to make than you might think. Once you’ve mastered the techniques, you can create all the flowers you know and love – from lilies, poppies and peonies to tulips, daffodils and bluebells. Afterwards, you can use the flowers individually – or you can gather your favourite flowers together in a beautiful everlasting bouquet.
If you become as fascinated with crêpe flowers as we are, we have several craft kits that make it easy for you to get started with the technique. We also have a universe of ideas, where you can always find inspiration for your next crêpe flower.

The benefits of crêpe flowers
Fresh flowers directly from the garden are a lovely sight, but they rarely last long – unlike crêpe flowers. Flowers made from crêpe paper are known for being long-lasting – so long, in fact, that many call them eternity flowers.
In addition to their longevity, there are other reasons to go from hand-picked to hand-made. Paper flowers give you a much greater opportunity to be creative – because you're not bound by nature’s design. You can experiment freely with different colours, shapes and expressions when working with crêpe paper. In addition, our crêpe paper is incredibly flexible to work with – the paper has a stretch percentage of 180%, which makes it so elastic that you can stretch and shape it without it breaking.
It sounds almost too good to be true – but if you choose to ride the crêpe wave, we can promise you flowers that have all the advantages. You get flowers that never wilt, are completely pollen-free and do not require any care. Plus, the possibilities for creativity are almost endless.
