About This Class

This class focuses on a basic folded paper shape, that when glued together with others, creates a beautiful flower. The shape is straightforward and easy. You can use this technique with other types of papers, including ones you've cut yourself in order to create interesting arrangements for parties, gifts, weddings, or your own home. This class requires:

1. 5 or 6 squares of paper per flower

2. Glue

optionally:

- a bone folder or creasing instrument for folding

- chopsticks for the stem display
