Comics Flowers with Tutorial!

Flower gifts: paper flower crafts
I’ve been playing with lots of comic book ideas lately and thought up this one, since I’ve made flowers with fabric before…  It’s fun and easy and a new take on recycling/upcycling!  You will need comics, cloth floral wire and clear drying glue (like Elmer’s or Weldbond).

1. Choose your images from comic books, and paint a coat of mod-podge over the area.

2. Take floral wire and bend around a round dowel or object, then pull slightly into a pear shape, wrapping ends together under flower petal.

3. Glue around petal shape and stick to image.  I like to make the wire petals stand up straight to dry correctly.

4. Let dry, and add another coat of mod-podge before assembling.

5. Take 5 petals and twist together, bending into the flower shape, until you are happy with the results.

6. Enjoy!
