Cut strips of crepe paper of about 5 inches in length and 1.5 inches in width. Six strips of paper are required for one tulip flower. Fold the strip in half gently making a crease
Twist along this crease at the center as shown. Make a few such twists (3-4 twists). After twisting, fold and place one half of the paper on the other, press them together and shape it a bit. The paper used here is one-sided – so when you place one half on the other ensure that colored side faces up. Cut along the open side of the piece to get it shaped like a petal and twist the paper to secure the end
Repeat the steps above to make a total of six petals. Now for the flower stamen, take a piece of metal string and glue on a small cotton ball at the top shaping it (like an oval). Hold a petal together with the stamen as shown.
Holding the metal string with the petal, start tying petals around it using a sewing thread. Keep trying more petals together in the same fashion. Here is the flower after all the six petals have been tied together. Secure the knots well and cut off any excess thread. Now wrap the green duplex paper around the stem starting from the top. Here is the completed tulip flower.
To make some leaves cut out a piece of green crepe paper in the shape of a leaf and place a piece of metal string on top. Cut out another piece and glue it on top. This makes the leaf thicker and can be shaped as needed.
