3 – Pop up the walnut from the wrapping, smooth walnut hard shell helps in doing the same. Yay ! your first petal is ready.

4 –  Repeat step 2 and 3 for rest of 4 piece of pink tissue. Scuff the yellow strip between your hands and create the stem pollen as seen in the picture.

On stem wire of length 45 cm I have arranged 2 five petal and 6 three petal flowers to create following flower stick. If you don’t have stem wire you can pick up any dried branch from your yard or use any wire available to you.

Where to use them

– Decoration
– Gift packaging
– Christmas tree decoration
– Paper flower bouquets
– Inexpensive hair band for kid’s birthday party (when decorated around wire !)

Be creative and share arranging these beautiful flowers in your ways.

Happy crafting !
