  1. These were awesome. I made gerbera daisies, roses, freesia and lilies from ur instructibles. They came out real nice. Only I dint have pips for the lilies, so I substituted with some matchsticks. lol. They pass off as lilies from a distance. 😛 Thank you so much for putting these up. I feel addicted to making these paper flowers.

  2. All flower you make is very realistic!! I hope you make many more like this one! Thank you so much for this beautiful tutorial! 😀 <3

  3. Thank you for this wonderful tutorial. I love your voice! Orange Gerbera Daisies were my sister-in-law's very favorite flower. She passed away 4 years ago, tragically and suddenly from a rare complication during childbirth. I think I'll try to make some of these lovely paper daisies – they always remind me of her!

  4. beautiful as usual. i had a tedious time trying this one. lol. you mentioned that you doubled the paper. can you please do a quick tutorial on that? thanks again fot sharing.

  5. I'm having trouble finding the deluxe crepe paper. I've looked for it at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Party City. No one sells it. Does anyone know where I can find it?
