Hello my dear friends, readers wish you all a wonderful 2015.. Hope it brings you lot of joy, and happiness!!
Pinterest is awesome place to explore creativity with paper. Creating paper reeds is a great way to recycle your old magazines. So many amazing things can be created from these paper reeds! Coasters, basket, frames.. the list is endless.
Most of DIY by me don't see the blogging world :)), because it would have turned out not so nice, or a total failure or sometimes I am simply lazy to post it. As a new resolution I am posting here reed flowers that I made from the paper reeds.
First you need to make lots of paper reeds. Doing paper straw or reed is pretty simple. Follow this tutorial here for making paper reeds
Flatten these straw like reeds by rolling them against a pen. This is bit tough if the reed is strong.
Start rolling the flattened reed around the same pen. Put a dot of glue/fevicol in the end to prevent it from unrolling.
Join these circles in a flower fashion using fevicol and later tie them with colorful threads for stability.
