flower inspiration

Hi my friends. Hope you are all fine.
Finally spring starts to settle for real here and flowers peek up everywhere.
I SO love this time of year! :)
I LOVE flowers, they always seems to make me happy. And after my post on how to made the bouquet I showed at the Hellerud scrapbooking and rubberstamp show Iwas SO, SO inspired by Wenche and her BEAUTIFUL flowers and by the flower challenge on the cocoa Daisy spring crop, to make this little spring bouquet.
My bouquet is pretty simple - most of the work is folding all the parts of the flowers.

I have made this little tutorial on how I made the flowers using my beautiful, colorful My Little Shoebox paper. This papers are perfect for flower-folding. Heavy, doublesided paper. I used hot glue to make sure the flowers don't fall apart.
I found the tutorial on how to fold the flowers here
So, let's just get started on the flower-folding.
For this project you'll need doublesided patterned paper. I used My Little Shoebox, but you can use 3ndypapir, CosmoCricket or any of your favourite heavy Weight doublesided patterned paper.
You'll also need hot glue, metal wire, oasis (green foam to use for flower-decorations) a little flower-pot or vase, scissor and paper-trimmer.
1. I started with 5 equaly sized 2x2inch squares.
2. fold the square in half
3. fold the corners of the triangle up to the top. The triangle ill now have a square shape.
4. fold the upper corners outwards.
5. open up the flaps and flatten, like this:

6. fold down the upper edge of each flap and fold the flap back in half.
7. fold 5 equal pieces

8. glue the folded triangles together.
9. you now have one petal of your flower. Do the same to all the 5 parts of the flower.
10. glue all the petals together. Now the flower is ready.

Make as many flowers as you like in your fvourite colors.
Mine are all in spring-colors. :)
11. attach the metal wire (stem) to the back of your flower using the hot glue.

When all the flowers have stems, grab the oasis and make it fit in to the vase you have chosen for this project. I used a little silver-vase.
Add the flowers and arrange them as you wish. Add green leaves to cover the top of the oasis and little stripes of green paper to make spirals like in this project.
And because these flowers are not in need of sunlight or water this is a perfect decoration for the dark corners of your house that needs to be brightened up a bit. ;)

Hope you feel inspired!
And thank you Wenche for this wonderful idea!

have a great week you all.
