Products mentioned above are recommened, as used in Zoe’s tutorial. However, you can swap out where you see approprate with different colourings and powder colours etc.


Step 1
Mix the flexique as per the instructions on the tub. Then, add drops of Rose Colour Mill into the mix.

Step 2
Paint on one side of the wafer paper and allow to dry for 5 minutes.

Step 3
Turn over and repeat the process on the other side of the wafer paper.

Step 4
Dust the wafer paper with Rainbow Dust’s edible powder colour.

Step 5
The wafer paper will now have the hand feel of fabric – it can be draped and folded just like the real thing.

Step 6
Using a circle cutter, cut out 8-10 circles.

Step 7
Start by folding your circles in half, then half again.

Step 8
Thread a florist wire through the centre corner of the folded circle.

Step 9
Repeat steps 7 and 8 until all circles have been used.
