When decorating with real flowers is not an option, make your own with recycled materials commonly found at home! Fort Bend County Libraries’ Sugar Land Branch Library will present “Making Cut-Paper Flowers” on Tuesday, October 22, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 550 Eldridge.
Hayley Kyle, a member of the library’s Adult Services staff, will demonstrate how to make different types of cut-paper flowers from recycled materials such as newspapers, magazines, crepe paper, and other items. These unique creations can be used to make flower bouquets, to adorn packages, or for many other decorative uses.
Kyle learned how to make the flowers from watching online tutorials and from reading how-to craft books in the library. Her background is in fine art – painting and printmaking – so when she discovered cut-paper flowers, her creativity and imagination took the basic concepts and led her to making flowers of many different colors, shapes, and styles.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2140 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
