SPRING, HERE WE GO[:]
Hello everyone, We’re back! Things have been crazy at the Lemonade Studio: the office’s major renovation has been going on for the past two weeks. Which will mean: more space, new colors, like a breath of fresh air for all of us, and a new start! I can’t wait to take some pictures and show you but like they say: “the devil’s in the details”. I want everything to be perfect before you take a look. So I’m back today with a little tutorial that you voted for on Instagram. I just love Insta stories! Last Friday, I showed the behind-the-scenes on Instagram since Pandora asked us to come up with a DIY in honor of spring time and their amazing new daisy collection and their new campaign “Do, panDOra”, “Do” as in “do” it yourself, got it? For this special occasion, I’m spending my allowance on this little ring, I just love flowery jewelry...
This was also the perfect occasion to make a sort of collection of all things flowery made out of paper that we’ve made and experimented with over the past months/years for our shoots or for Make My Lemonade. Here’s a sort of “abc’s” of all our flowers, it can go with anything! Here at the office, we cut everything out with our darn “Cameo Silhouette” machine that we’ve renamed Michel. Don’t ask- the story behind it is too long... All the templates that we’re going to give you can be cut out by hand no problem. It’ll take more time of course, but it’s doable.
Getting back to the stupid machine, it’s definitely an investment, but if you want to get into paper art, it really helps. It’ll be your best friend and will pay for itself!
You’ll find out how to make fluffy pompoms, mini daisies, curly flowers, tiny peonies, anemones and our life-like irises!
To make all these flowers, you’ll need:
- Thin white Canson paper
- White tissue paper
- White crepe paper (to make life-like irises)
- A felt marker
- Thick white wire
- Wooden beads
- Scotch glue, from a green tube
