Paper Twine Flowers


                                                                                        

My Paper Twine Daisy :))

                                                                                     





                                                                                   


I  found a website and tutorial to make paper flowers and crafts using 
Paper Twine :)))Only from  Ann Martins recent post i realized they are 
Paper  Twines rather than 
paper threads :))

And found another lovely tutorial from this site Too

And Another German Web site ..http://papiergarn.blogspot.co.uk/


.
I think the twine i have is not thick like the ones i saw in paper phine shop 
                                                                                       

so when i untwisted the twine /opened i couldn't get a wide piece .
but i was able to make tiny petals and leaves.
this petal was white ..i just dabbed it with ink to give a pale pink color .
                                                                         

for the flower center i held several pieces of twine together cut the edges
and dabbed it with brown ink .


sorry about this picture ..it was too dark .
excuse !sorry about the messy table :))






i cut exactly 1 inch twine and opened it gently then one edge was squeezed for base of petal 
and other  tapering  edges were  gently folded to achieve the petal shape.
i am thinking of making a dragon fly with white paper twine ..

  6. Very beautiful, Angelin! These flowers make great decorative objects! I went through my craft supplies and I discovered I have something similar, but the paper thread is very wide. I'll see what I can do with it and come back to let you know. Thank you for the inspiring post!

    Hugs!
