Easy Crepe Paper Carnations Tutorial

crepe paper carnations

I was going through some boxes in my closet and found a few packages of streamers I had forgotten about.   I decided to get them out and see what I could do with them.  I'm always working with paper and fabric strips trying to make flowers so I thought these streamers may make a cute flower. I ended up putting a stitch down the edge, gathering them and rolling them up. They turned out really cute, just like carnations!  I also made some rolled flowers or cabbage roses, I think they call them, which turned out really cute too.  I decided to do a tutorial on how to make each of these.  There is a link to it at the end of this post.

Here are some more photos:
