Handmade Vellum Flowers

Sandy with a set of wedding gift tags today featuring handmade flowers. They were created using the teabag folding technique. Each flower require 16 squares of medium weight paper. If you start with 1.5"x1.5" squares, the completed flower will measure 3" in diameter. Our new vellum is great to use, as it's not as stiff as regular pattern paper, making it easy to fold. It's translucency shows off the petal layers beautifully.
