Paper Spiky Flower Tutorial

 Here's another tutorial I created for Paper Studio.  A fun "spiky" paper flower that would work well on a wreath or in place of a bow on a present.

Let's get started.
Step 1: Gather you supplies.  I used the following:
Double sided paper 1 1/2" x 12"
Zips (clear adhesive lines)
Supplies for Spiky Flower
Step 2 : Score down the middle the full length of your paper strip. My paper piece was 1 1/2" so I scored at 3/4".

Step 3: Fold paper strip in half along score line.  Cut along the fold at a 45 degree angle 1/4" strips.  Leave at least an 1/8" along the bottom uncut.

Step 4:  Apply Zips adhesive to one side of your still folded and cut paper along that bottom 1/8".

Step 5: Start rolling round and round your cut paper strip while unrolling your zips backing.  (Here's a view of the backside while doing this.)

Step 6:  Finish going round and firmly press flower base.

Step 7:  Your flower will look a bit stiff and squat till you "fluff" the petals.  Do this by gently opening the petals along the score lines with your fingers.

There are lots of possibilities with all the different colors, thicknesses and lengths of paper choices available.   So happy flower making! - Misty
