How To Make The Most Exquisite Paper Flowers


Unlike fresh-cut flowers, paper blooms last forever. And if you make them like floral stylist, crafter and creative director Livia Cetti, they might even be mistaken for the real thing. One of the top paper-flower artists in the U.S., Livia recently released her second book, The Exquisite Book Of Paper Flower Transformations. Below, we share a paper rose project from the tome. “I thought a lot about how to translate what I was literally seeing onto paper, and came up with the natural-looking Eden Rose” she says. “Instead of a stylized stamen, the Eden Rose doesn’t have a traditional center — you can’t see it on the bloom.” Find the step-by-step instructions below, and try playing around with different configurations as you make yours.
