Camellia will show you 2 easy ways to make petals of Forget Me Not flower from Crepe paper.
Method 1: Cut crepe paper to size: then double and paste floral wire inside. Cut the strip into 5 section with 1/2 inch wide.
Put the two ends in the middle, twist the floral wire, then trim the petals as shown above.
Method 2: Fold along crepe paper and then fold in small size to cut petals shape. Then paste the floral wire inside and continue doing the same as the first method.
Step 2: Calyx of paper Myosotis scorpioides flower
Bend the head of the floral wire to form a small hook to hold the coton ball at the top then wrap the sepals (cut like the picture) around the coton ball to make the calyx.
Use a gun to glue the petals to the sepals and use watercolors to create the flower's characteristic colors
