How to make Easy Paper Flowers Orchid Phalaenopsis / Moth Orchid (flower # 91)


hi today I am going to make moth orchid a very pretty orchid, very simple to make materials required are crepe paper in any floral orchid color and green i’m using purplish pink, thin wire, a thick wire, pencil colors in yellow, white, red, some cotton wool, a green floral tape and some tissue paper all the stencils and measurements are given at the end of video take the piece for the center stretch it then with a white pencil just color the center portion very well like this now take some thin wire and measure out about six inches and cut that piece out now take this piece and fold it in half like this then take some cotton wool very little wool apply some glue on top of the wire and take some cotton wool a little piece put it on top and make it like a ear bud just roll it with your fingers like this and take the paper that we’ve colored and on the opposite side apply some glue my trusty glue is not coming out and stick this on top of the bud just fold out the paper and the white portion should come on top of the bud just roll it between your finger so that it sticks well like this now take the centerpieces the lip that we made and first with a yellow pencil I’ll take the smaller ones first so just color the center portion make it as dark as you can like this then with the red colored pencil just color the outside area of the yellow blend it a bit with the yellow so this is what it looks I have the other one also so both of them look like this now with this lip cut out again take the yellow pencil and color the center of the stem with yellow and a little above that line and then take the red, color the upper portion not the whole thing just this square area and then with a white pencil colour the lower portion so this is what it looks like now take a small piece apply glue on the base and stick this on this bigger piece just where the yellow portion is so this is what it looks like stick it well then again take another piece second piece apply glue and stick this also the same way right opposite the first so this is what you get now let it dry completely after it has dried now we have to curl it so first I’ll curl the sides so just hold it you know upside down and curl the like so and then curl the upper part also so this is what you what it looks like now apply glue behind you know behind this like this and stick it on the center that we had made earlier so stick it leaving about less than half a centimeter on the top press down the sides you may have to curl it back again if it straightens out just hold it for a few seconds now take the petal ‘B’ the one which is wide in size first curl it like this then the portion which is curled so push it out and fold it over on the other side in half and then give a very sharp crease at the center so you get a line in the center like this so I have made the other one also in the same way now apply glue on the stem first its better actually to fold it so just fold it like this and stick it on this on the stem on the center just below this lip so you have to push up the lip of it and stick the petal like this perpendicular to this press it hard so the sticks well then push it down a bit like so similarly take the other petal first fold the stem apply glue on it stick this on the other side to the first one just and see just there and under the lip a bit press it so it sticks well now take the petal ‘A’ first curl it then stretch it quite well it becomes wide like this cut, and fold it again in the same way and give it a crease also in the center a sharp crease this is what you get now I have done petal ‘C’ also in the same way so apply glue on petal ‘A’ first first you fold the stem outwards you know like this apply glue and stick this between the two petals ‘B’ between these two just position it at the back and stick it like so take petal ‘C’ and stick it just outside petal ‘A’ so it would be, you know, halfway behind petal ‘A’ and half exposed like this so just stick it this is what it looks like and we do the same for the second petal ‘C’ now take a piece of the green tape stretch it and wind this from the base of the orchid to the end of the stem take the piece for the bud and stretch it well now take a wire 8 inches long and fold it in half now take some tissue paper scrunch it up into a ball first apply some glue on the centerpiece put the tissue ball in the center and take the wire sort of hold it in the center of the ball and just wrap the paper gray paper on it and twist the ends for a nice ball now just shape the ball just press it on the top so it becomes slightly pointed and elongate it like so now take the piece for for the bud and stretch it and apply glue on it and on the stem of the bud piece and stick it on top of this ball covering half of it on the top and try to now conform it to the shape of the ball if you get a few folds on top like so doesn’t matter and then take another one I already cupped it so I’m just going to apply glue on it stick it right opposite to the first one so its going to look like this now again take some floral tape from the base of the bud till the end of the wire and already made other flowers in the same way you can make more buds if you like I am just making one now take a long piece of the floral tape stretch it so first we will take the bud hold it on top of the thick wire about, you know, leave about one to one and a half inch above the thick wire and then just start wrapping the tape on it then take a flower and just put it there on the stem you can position the flowers later give a few rolls and take another flower flowers of the orchid are slightly alternate, you know they go zigzag like that so just and they all face towards the same side just gonna put them like this take the third and the fourth this is what it looks like now just sort of bend the stem a bit and give that zigzag effect position your flowers so they should all be almost facing in the same direction here’s your stem of orchid I have made another one which has two buds on it so this is what they look like for the leaf first take the thin wire and measure it out on the leaf so just see how much and take about one and a half inch extra like so and cut it out now take some tape again stretch it and wrap it on this green tape green sorry on the wire, the thin wire like this and the whole wire should be covered like this now fold the leaf right side inside give it a sharp crease and on the wrong side apply glue on the crease and stick this tape covered wire if you have florist’s wire that’s also perfect use that stick it on top of the leaf this is what you get I have already made three more like this now when you want to arrange it just put the leaves in the bowl on the bowl or vase whatever like this and curve the leaf a bit over your vase and then put the flowers this is how it will look after you finished all the flowers in the arrangement all the measurements for the stencils are given in centimeter this is the stencil for the center this is 2.5 x 2.5 square cut one piece per flower this is of the lip a smaller piece this is 1.5 centimeter wide and 2.5 long cut 2 pieces per flower this is of the bigger lips size this is 4.5 centimeter long and 2.25 wide here the horns are about 1 centimeter long and the stem is 1.5 x 0.75 centimeter cut one piece per flower this is of petal ‘A’ this is 5.5 centimeter high and 2.5 centimeters wide the stem is one centimeter and one centimeter wide cut one piece per flower this is of petal ‘B’ this is six centimeter high and five centimeter wide the stem is one centimeter by one centimeter cut 2 pieces per flower then you have petal ‘C’ this is six centimeter high and 2.5 centimeters wide the stem is again 1 centimeter by one centimeter cut 2 pieces per flower this is for the bud this is 3.5 centimeter high and two centimeter wide stem is again one centimeter by one centimeter cut 2 pieces per bud this is of the bud this is four centimeter high and five centimeter wide cut one piece per bud this is the leaf now the leaf of orchids can be really big also so I have just taken an average size this is fourteen centimeter high and 4.5 centimeter wide stem is one centimeter by one centimeter cut as many as you like
