Paper Orchids

Why hide away your orchids, while you wait for them to reebloom?

Make this easy paper flower, attach it to the plant - and it will still look beautiful, while you wait for the real flowers to come back.

Just follow this tutorial:

All you need is paper, sissors and a piece of wire.

Cut out the two pieces of the flower according to the template (at the end of this tutorial).

Pull the wire through the first part of the flower.
Bend the small leaves back around...
... and pull in front of the large petals.
Pull the wire through the back petals and twist.
Bend and shape the petals and attach to the stem or a stick with the wire.

All done!
