paper flower

Decorative paper flowers like this one are woven using a cotton warp and a paper yarn weft. I buy paper yarn from Finland which is a coloured tape twisted to look like string. Grasping a cut end of a piece of this and untwisting gives it the appearance of an opening flower bud. I especially enjoy working with yarns which have been dyed after twisting as they reveal a flash of another colour or shade when unfurled.

I like to work on the flower buds with a group of enthusiasts. They are an ideal ‘friendship’ flower, it takes a while to transform them into ‘flowers’, a task which can be shared and enjoyed. I wrote about making these in an article published in the Spring 2012 issue of the Journal for Weavers Spinners and Dyers.
