Learn to Make Paper Flowers!

A demonstration of how to make flowers from tissue paper. Blogged at http://feelingfuzzy.blogspot.com. Come by and visit!
The paper size you need is: 35 x 25cm / 14 x 10 inches.
Or you can use any paper size in a similar ratio – basically a rectangle.
The tissue paper that we buy in Australia is at a standard size, and you can just fold it in quarters to get the perfect rectangle.
I used 7 rectangles, but for a fuller flower you can use more.

Robert’s Paper Flower Inspiration Pinterest Board: http://pinterest.com/robertm/paper-flora/

Materials:
Construction paper
Cardstock or lightweight cardboard for the templates

Tools:
Scissors
Multi-blade scissors (optional)
Pencil or pen
Bowls and/or plates to trace for templates
Ruler
Paper clips (optional)
Stapler
Hot glue gun with glue

Directions:
1. Begin by creating templates for your petals.  Trace a bowl or small plate onto cardstock or lightweight cardboard to create the upper portion of the petal.  Use a ruler to create the sides of the petal, tapering it slightly at the base.  Depending on how large you’d like to make your flower, create this same shape petal template in two to three sizes — the flower demonstrated in the video uses three (small, medium and large).  Once you’ve drawn your petal templates, cut them out.
2. Next trace your templates onto construction paper.  The flower demonstrated in the video requires five large petals, three medium and three small.  To avoid having to cut each petal out individually, stack two to three sheets of paper, trace the template on top sheet, clip the paper together and then cut.  The clips will prevent the paper from shifting while you cut.
3. When you’ve finished cutting out all of your petals, stack the respective sizes together , take your scissors and create a roughly 3″ vertical cut in the center of the tapered petal base.  Take the tab of paper one either side of the cut and overlap them — you’ll see this causes the paper cup creating a three dimensional petal.  Begin with the large petals first — as the exterior petals we want these to be fairly open — so overlap the two sides slightly and then staple them together.  Moving on to the medium sized petals — we want these to sit up higher than the large petals — so overlap the two sides even more and staple  together.  Finally the small petals — we want these to sit up almost vertically — so overlap the two sides even more and staple together.
4. Assemble the petals together to construct the flower, beginning with the large petals.  Overlap each large petal slightly at the base and secure them together using hot glue.  Connect all five large petals to create a cup-like form — this is the exterior ring of petals.  Then apply hot glue to the underside base of the three medium petals, pressing them into the interior of the cup-like form, position them so they overlap slightly — this creates the second ring of petals.  Repeat this process for the three small petals — this creates the inner ring of petals.
5. To create the interior or stamen of the flower, take a sheet of construction paper and cut in half lengthwise.  Take these two pieces and fold them in half lengthwise.  Using regular or multi-blade scissors create a series of cuts down the entire length of the folded edge.  Unfold these two sheets and refold them in the opposite direction — this will create extra dimension to the stamen.  Secure one end with a couple staples and then begin to wrap this piece around a pencil — when you get to the end of the strip secure it with some hot glue.  Glue the second strip and continuing wrapping around the first piece — finishing with additional glue.  The end result will look somewhat like a paper pom pom!  Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the underside and press down into the center of the flower.
6. Finish your flower with some foliage!  Create a leaf by folding a piece of construction paper in half lengthwise and then cut half of a tear drop shape.  To add dimension to the leaf, fold it accordion style on an angle.  Unfold the leaf, apply hot glue to the underside of the flower and position the leaf.

Helpful Tips:
• These flowers sit flat, making them perfect party decorations!  Consider using them as centerpieces or to decorate your mantle or coffee table.  You can also use temporary adhesive to mount them on your wall!
• Experiment with different petal shapes to create a variety of flower forms.
• These giant paper flowers can be created from almost any kind of sturdy paper — solid text weight or card stock, patterned scrapbooking paper or even heavier wrapping paper.

Diwali flower bouquet sales at Green Park Market, Delhi

Diwali (also spelled Devali in certain regions) or Deepavali, popularly known as the “festival of lights,” is a five day festival which starts on Dhanteras (Dhantrayodashi), celebrated on thirteenth lunar day of Krishna paksha (dark fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month Ashwin and ends on Bhaubeej, celebrated on second lunar day of Shukla paksha (bright fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month Kartik. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls between mid-October and mid-November. Diwali is an official holiday in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Mauritius, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Malaysia, Singapore and Fiji. For Hindus, Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes. For Jains, Diwali marks the attainment of moksha or nirvana by Mahavira in 527 BCE. Arya Samajists, celebrate this day as Death Anniversary of Swami Dayanand Saraswati. They also celebrate this day as Shardiya Nav-Shasyeshti.

The name “Diwali” or “Divali” is a contraction of “Deepavali”, which translates into “row of lamps”. Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. These lamps are kept on during the night and one’s house is cleaned, both done in order to make the goddess Lakshmi feel welcome.[6] Firecrackers are burst because it is believed that it drives away evil spirits. During Diwali, all the celebrants wear new clothes and share sweets and snacks with family members and friends. The festival starts with Dhanteras on which most Indian business communities begin their financial year. The second day of the festival is called the Naraka Chaturdasi. Amavasya, the third day of Diwali, marks the worship of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. The fourth day of Diwali is known as Kartika Shudda Padyami. The fifth day is referred to as Yama Dvitiya (also called Bhai Dooj), and on this day sisters invite their brothers to their homes.
