Phormium Fun! (Phormium tenax (New Zealand flax))

Stuck in doors? Bored? Looking for something fun to do? Fold a Phormium leaf! Easy to do and a great effect, and they last for weeks in a bowl of water with a bit of bear grass or steel grass! Try it today, go on!!

Love this! Is it folded the same as a ribbon rose?

I'm really not sure Gillian as I don't know how to fold a ribbon rose. However, you fold the Phormium Leaf from the base upwards to the tip of the stem folding and turning the leaf as you go to form the 'rose' shape. Quite hard to explain but however you fold it and turn it you tend to end up with a flower like shape .... so that will do really! You can either turn the tip of the leaf in to the design or pin it with a pearl pin or something else a bit more funky! Good luck .... Gloriosa!
