Lei and Flowers

I have been a bit hooked into making these daisies lately after my previous big work. I decided to make some more for Johanna’s Hawaiian-themed birthday surprise. I also made a red lei for her, which she wore all night (I am proud to report)! The lei was a coup as I have not used crepe paper for a long time. I remember using them for flower-making for funerals, for some reason. A bit macabre, but the flowers I saw executed in crepe paper by very deft women were phenomenal. I think I was about thirteen when I first saw this kind of flower-making. The daisy here is a ‘stiff’ paper example, but some crepe paper ones probably would evoke a different feel. Mmmm. More ideas…
