colorado-butterfly-plant-paper-flower-tutorial-title

The Colorado butterfly plant’s Flowerets are as entrancing as they are elegant. Each delicate component; velum stamen, folded petals, and a red to green gradient stem, come together to make this paper flower. And, with 27 steps, this isn’t a craft project for the impatient, but I think that the product is well worth it!
