This was a last minute project that I fell in love with. I had wrestled with creating a pom-pom type flower before, but I was never able to get a nice tight flower. With the Twist and Style Tool, I was able to make each flower in less than five minutes!
I cut a two inch strip from fine crepe and fringed the edges as shown. I used a silver paper from the new Lia Griffith Crepe Paper. It's a soft crepe that feels almost like fabric. I then doubled a piece of paddle wire (found at all local craft stores) and secured it with a brief manual twist. I attached the ends of the wire to my Twist and Style Craft Tool and Twisted until it made a nice stem. The branches were also twisted with the Twist and Style Craft Tool and then the tips were dipped in silver metallic paint.
I have arthritic hands and I never would've been able to make this without the Twist and Style Craft Tool. It's so easy to use that this entire project can be completed in minutes.
