Crepe or Duplex paper is so flexible that you can make any realistic looking flower quite easily. Rose flowers for a bridal bouquet can be made using the steps outlined here.
Glimpse of the Result:
Cut out a long strip of crepe or duplex paper. The length of the strip can be 15 inches and the width can be 2.5 to 3 inches.
Fold the strip in half along its width.
Now start gathering the strip to make uniform fan fold like creases. You can use a thread and needle to gather the strip.
Once the complete strip is folded as shown, start wrapping it around a metal string. Use some glue at the start.
Wrap the whole strip, make the wrap loose at times. As you go on you will get a neat rose with rich petals.
Now use floral tape or green crepe paper to wrap around the stem.
Make 20 to 30 roses to make a bridal bouquet.
Now hold these together and arrange them neatly. Secure the shapely rose bouquet using a string.
Cut the stem at the bottom to get even ends.
You’ve got a pretty bridal bouquet ready. Wrap a satin ribbon of a suitable color for a finishing touch.
These roses can be arranged in a glass vase to make any place colorful and charming.
