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.
Flowers that Bloom on the Wall
Forget wall tattoos - now your favorite paper designs can have their big moment: We'll mix them up, fold them into big flowers and hang them on the wall like pictures.
How It Is Done:
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.
Cut out the petals and unfold them.
Apply tesa® all purpose glue about 5 mm along the edge of each petal, from the bottom up to the mark (see stencil).
Repeat this process until all of the petals are glued together. This will create a "flower cup" that is open on one side.
After drying, unfold the flower: Hold the flower on the closed side and use your other hand to carefully open it from back to front. Attach the flowers to the wall with tesa Powerstrips® small.
Enjoy your self-made floral wall decoration!
