Accordian Flower & Masking Tape Flower Tutorial

My friends Deanna and Phyllis have been asking me to show them how to do a couple of flowers, so I finally made a video for them tonight. Hope y'all don't mind that I combined it into one tutorial!

(This image is from the Creating Keepsakes facebook page; these giant blooms were spotted at Creative Escape.)

(This image is from a tutorial on adhesives that I did for Noelmignon.com. I'm demonstrating in the video how to make the flower on the far right out of masking tape. I got the idea from fellow design team member, Britt, and her video on how to do them with decorative tape. )

I used the Girls' Paperie "Paper Girl" line for my samples in the video. Hope y'all enjoy! Please ignore my raspy voice; normally I don't sound like I'm a chain smoker... I've just had bad allergies this week! :)


  1. A huge THANK YOU Virginia! You're so sweet & those flowers are gorgeous! I'm inspired! :) Phyllis

  2. Virginia,
    I love these flowers. I had read that you made masking tape flowers but did not know what they were.

    Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us.
