- Washi Tape or other paper tape
- 26 Gauge floral wire
- Flower stamens
- Floral tape
- Wire cutters/pliers
To make the flowers:
Trim a piece of tape a little over twice the height of your petal loop. Place loop onto lower half of tape and fold the remaining tape over. Press together firmly. Trim corners to create petal shapes.
For leaves, repeat the petal steps using only a 3-inch section of wire without loop and trimming to leaf shape. Turn wire and repeat at the other end. Fold double leaf wire in half. Make different sizes and shapes for different color and patterned flowers.
Place the folded wire leaves section against the flower stems and continue tightly wrapping with floral tape, wrapping to the end of your wires and just slightly beyond before tearing off the end of the tape to finish.
Adhere washi tape flowers to hair accessories, wrap stems with ribbon or contrasting washi tape and pin as buttoniers, or add blossoms to gift packaging. I gathered three flowers together and tucked them into my silver basket vase pin.
