01

We need patterned paper, e.g. wrapping paper (the sturdier the paper is, the better), sturdy paper for the stencil, scissors, pencil, folding tool, paper stencil, tesa Powerstrips® small, and tesa® all purpose glue.

Cut a stencil from the sturdy paper according to the template.

Cut a stencil from the sturdy paper according to the template. Cut out 10 x 20 cm rectangles from the paper, 7 pieces per flower. Fold each rectangle in half horizontally with the pattern on the inside.

Use the stencil to trace the half-petal.
