Fraise & Basilic is a cooking blog… of course, but not only! Inspirations, decoration and DIY are also on the menu. Behind gourmet recipes and licked photos hides Sandrine, artistic director and in love with pretty things. Today, we find her for a poetic and spring tutorial, a bouquet of paper flowers, a perfect homemade gift for Mother's Day.


You will need: - a roll of white crepe paper - a roll of black crepe paper - floral scotch or classic scotch - skewers - scissors - 5 blade scissors for aromatic herbs (optional) - a piece of ribbon


1. Start by preparing the heart of the flower. To do this, make a small ball from a small square of cotton and cover it with black crepe paper. Tape the base with floral tape. 2. Then cut a strip of crepe, and using the 5-blade scissors (faster than a conventional scissor but which also works), make fringes all over the lower part. Wrap the result around the base of the flower. Secure with scotch tape.
3. Cut 8 rectangles of the same size from the white crêpe and cut them into a heart shape. To hold them securely while you cut them, you can staple them together. 4. Wrap the two tops of the heart (one at a time) around a small pen to give a little movement to each petal. Then wrap the petals, one by one, around the base, taping well between each step. Keep in mind that it does not matter if each petal is a little different. After all, on a flower, none is really the same.
5. Organize the flowers into a bouquet and secure it with a piece of ribbon.


And There you go ! A poetic and airy bouquet perfect to decorate a table or to offer to a mom.
