Paper Flowers with the Taubman Museum of Art


FURNISHINGS ROOM, WE WILL BE BECAUSE IT’S VALENTINE’S DAY WE HAVE AN EASY AND INEXPENSIVE CRAFT YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE TO MAKE. WE WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE PAPER FLOWERS. THESE ARE REALLY GREAT. YOU HAVE THEM IN THE JAR, AND THEN, ARE YOU WEARING ONE? YES, I’M WEARING ONE. YOU CAN DRESS THEM UP, MAKE A BRIEF IF YOU WANT TO OR PUT THEM IN A VASE. YOU CAN ALSO DRESSED THEM UP WITH GARLAND IF YOU WANT OR MAKE A PEN. IT’S VERY INEXPENSIVE AND SUPER EASY. ALL YOU NEED IS TISSUE PAPER AND THAT COULD BE A PLANE OR PATTERNED. SO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS, YOU WANT TO CUT OUT YOUR TISSUE PAPER IN A SQUARE, BUT, NOT QUITE SQUARE BUT NOT QUITE A RECTANGLE. YOU WANT TO DO ABOUT OR TWEEP SIX SEATS OF TISSUE PAPER. AND, IF YOU WANT A YELLOW CENTER, AND THEN WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS, YOU WANT TO FOLD IT LIKE A FAN. THIS I CAN HANDLE. AND THIS IS GREAT FOR KIDS. VERY SIMPLE AND SIMPLE. . ONCE YOU HAVE IT FOLDED, YOU CUT LITTLE SLITS IN THE TOP AND THE BOTTOM. YOU I’M MAKING ME NERVOUS HERE. THEN WE CUT JUST A LITTLE BIT OF WIRE THERE. WHAT I GO IN THE SLIP? YOU WRAP IT AROUND. AND THEN YOU WANT TO COME DOWN AND TWIST ALONG THE BOTTOM. ACTUALLY THE YELLOW PART IS UP AT THE TOP. I MISSED — MESS THAT UP ALREADY. AND, THEN WE ARE GOING TO SEPARATE OUR LAYERS HERE. SO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS DO A LITTLE BIT OF A LAYER AT A TIME. SO I LIKE TO PULL UP MY YELLOW PART FIRST. AND IF YOU DO IT IN SECTIONS, IT’S LESS LIKELY TO RIP. SO THAT’S HELPFUL. LCI RIPPED MINE, THAT’S OKAY BECAUSE THESE ARE IMPERFECT. YOU CAN TAKE THE SISTERS TO IT LATER IF YOU WANT TO AS WELL AND CUT OUT SMALLER PETALS, OR, EVEN IF YOU WANT BEFORE YOU EVEN UNFOLDED, YOU CAN ROUND THE CORNERS. AND I SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT FIRST. THE REASON WHY WE ARE DOING FLOWERS TODAY IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN EVENT COMING UP? YES. WE HAVE AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM IN THE GARDEN, WHERE WE ARE SHARING THIS CRAFT TODAY. IT’S VERY EASY AND EACH INDIVIDUAL TISSUE IS LIKE ITS OWN PEDAL. SO THAT’S ALL ABOUT THE GARDEN. SO COME AND SEE THE EXHIBITION. YOU WILL SEE EVERYTHING FROM PDAS AND ROSES, AND OTHER FRENCH IMPRESSIONISTS. AND THAT’S GOING ON ON THE 19th? YES, AND BEFORE THAT WE HAVE A TALK ON THURSDAY NIGHT. AND SHE DOESN’T METAL SCULPTURES OF CUPCAKES AND WE
