I believe I was the first person to create this paper baby’s breath technique, as my tutorial was published in May 2017. Since then, I have seen many similar tutorials appear.
I still remember the day I finished lunch and started playing with a tissue. I wondered if it would be possible to make mini paper flowers from such a soft and textured material. I thought about it for weeks, and eventually I had an idea: facial tissue would be perfect for making paper baby’s breath flowers! A year later, I had created paper apple flowers, paper cherry blossoms, and paper cosmos flowers, all from facial tissue.
I believe that this process is essential for creating realistic and beautiful paper flowers. By observing real flowers, I am able to capture their natural beauty. By asking questions and experimenting, I am able to find new and innovative ways to create paper flowers.
