Colorful Paper Wreath

Inspired by THE paper wizard, Manufacta, yesterday I made a paper wreath of my own, using some crepe paper that I've bought a few years ago and never used.
I'll also try another one on brown-white-gold tones, to put my wrapping paper leftovers to a good use.

  
  

For the round base, I've used some decorative Easter sisal grass.
I've made sandwiches from different color papers, and wrinkled them to make the flower shapes.

  

It was a very fun experience as it is basically a trial and no-error-possible process. It came out pretty quickly too! I've sewn my flowers to the base, as my stapler is momentarily unavailable (it was the victim of another experiment of mine, poor thing...)
