Best Out of Waste : Flower Making Tutorial





Plastic bags that come home every time we shop, becomes a huge waste. 

Here is a way to use these plastic bags. Make some lovely flowers out of it!!

Step (1): Cut in the indicated areas to get a rectangular sheet .
Step (2):Cut the rectangular sheet into strips of equal width. Depending upon the width of the cover you can make different sizes of flowers. Make a minimum of 6 similar strips and stack them together

Step (3) Make pleats on them  (stacked together) of half inch width throughout

Step (4): Now tie a thread/ plastic strip/ in the middle. If you want the flower to have a stem tie with metal wire instead of plastic strip.

Step (5) Now cut petal shape on both sides

Step (6): This is how it will look

Step (7):  Now start pulling up the individual layers on both side of the tie

Step (8)  This is how it looks after pulling out one side completely. Continue pulling out the layers on both sides of the tie.

Step (9) Two flowers that I made in similar fashion

Step (10) Now add it to a bouquet or make one out of similar bunch of flowers 
Hope you all liked this tutorial.

Have a great day folks.
