Chocolate Bouquet with Crepe Paper Flowers

How to make a Chocolate Bouquet with Crepe Paper Flowers

The flowers of this bouquet are made up of crepe paper purchased from an Art and Craft Store. Crepe paper is available in a variety of colours. These flowers are very easy to make.

For the chocolate, we have used the assorted variety which comes individually wrapped. The chocolates form the centre of the flowers.

What you need:

A basket / vase

Chocolates individually wrapped.

Floral foam

Crepe paper

Wooden Skewers

Curling Ribbon or any other decorative items to decorate your basket, in case you are using a basket and not a vase.

Method:

1. Cut the crepe paper so as to form squares. Each side of the square should be 2.5~3 inches.

2. Fold the square in half. Then fold the longer side in half. You will now get a smaller square.

3. Cut the open edges to form a curved edge as shown below.

10.  Cut the floral foam so that it fits snugly into the bouquet. Cover the foam with cling wrap/crepe paper/coloured tissue paper. This is for the base to look good. Now arrange the flowers to form a lovely bouquet.
