Papercut Flowers

I made these flowers for a competition last year, which I didn’t win, but that’s alright, I had fun making the flowers anyway.

I made flowers similar to these earlier in the year for uni, and I’ll post about them at some point.

The middles of the flowers are actually corks, which I carved to have a rounded top, and then I covered them in tissue paper and paper with circles cut out of it. Then I glued all the petals to the cork. These flowers are either really fun or really frustrating to make depending on whether the petals will sit in the right positions, but I like a challenge, and in the end I managed to get most of them right.
