Wax paper is a great material for crafting. I like using it to make flowers. I like how the material glistens. Here is how I made this flower using colored wax paper.
Using wax paper, cut out a bunch of pink hearts. These will be the petals.
Using green fabric, cut out some leaves and a long strand to cover the stem.
Using a stick or somethig similar for the stem, wrap it with green fabric.
Using glue, attach the petals to the tip of the stem.
Add as many layers as you like to achieve the full bloom you want.
Simple project and I think the stiffness of the wax paper helps create a nice bloom.
