As a fun diversion from crepe paper flowers, take a look at this DIY project brought to us by Yang Liu from Shanghai 1984. Here she shows us how to create striking and realistic looking Sheng Jian Bao... the street food bun native to her home. Thank you, Yang Liu!
Amity Beane has generously provided this DIY tutorial for her whimsical paper flower crown. Natural materials like birch and fir stems are utilized as well as DIY created crepe paper flowers!
This tutorial concentrates on the creation of the crown itself. You may of course use whatever paper flowers that you choose. The actual crepe paper flowers shown can be created from Amitys "Winter Whites" online course which can be found here!

Here is another great DIY project from Avanti Morocha. This time she has brought us a wonderful holiday centerpiece idea using our new collection of 60 gram crepe paper.

Arranged in a rustic box... add a few pinecones and ornaments and voila!... all ready to adorn the holiday table or mantle!
Holiday Greetings to All!!
Thanksgiving is pretty much right around the corner... time to prepare!
And "Thanks" to Roya, we have a lovely centerpiece DIY project that you can create to adorn the holiday table. Our wonderful paper artist has indicated specific colors in her tutorial but you may want to try your own variations using our new seasonal "Fall/Winter Collection" of Autumn colors.
Just in time for Halloween... Our local, talented paper artist, Roya has provided us a fun crepe paper project that can be used as a costume headpiece or even a decorative wreath!
We hope you try it!
We received this seasonal video tutorial from Inga Ilze Peterson (Instagram: @ingailzepeterson). Here she shows step by step instruction for creating a pumpkin with Italian 180g crepe paper from Carte Fini.

The pumpkin made in the video tutorial uses papers in Peach 17A/5 and Mint Green 565. Try making one with Candy Corn Nuance 576/9 or other color combinations for a stunning holiday pumpkin display!... enjoy.
