Paper Flower Bouquets - April 23, 2018
There’s been a long tradition in Mexico of constructing things, such as flowers, out of colored tissue paper. It’s a tradition that started more than 200 years ago in Mexico. Paper flowers are used to decorate fair booths, altars and graves. In some regions of Mexico, people decorate cakes with paper flowers. Tourists in Mexico can find the handcrafted paper flowers in hotel rooms or hung up on bamboo poles and sold on the streets.
You will be given all material and instruction to make a vibrant bouquet of paper flowers that can adorn your table, be given as gifts, or worn in your hair.
