To create: Cut out a 9-by-1-inch rectangle from the yellow crepe paper. With fringing scissors, fringe 1/4-inch from the bottom. Wrap the fringe piece around floral wire and add a dab of hot glue to secure. Cut out nine coral crepe paper petals roughly 1.25-by-1.75-inches. Shape the petals by pulling the center with both thumbs. Once you have a desired cup shape, stretch out the top to create a ripple effect. Attach the petals around the fringed stem with hot glue. Cut out a small 1/2-inch strip of coral paper to hot glue around the base for a clean finish. Repeat to create 6-8 flowers then attach all on a string and hang on a wall to display.
