Springtime in Paris

Hello everyone! I am so sorry I could not make any images for the weekly Friday Freebie. I was trying to finish my entry for Michael’s Springtime in Paris contest. First place wins a trip for two to Paris!

Ashley's Michael's Entry

The theme of the contest is “Springtime in Paris” so I made this 3d model of the Eiffel Tower out of paper. It is covered in handmade paper flowers. In these two tutorials on my site, you can find out how I made most of the flowers: Flower 1, Other Variations. I also made some spiral roses, for which I will put up a tutorial for some time next week.

      Thank you so much! Darn, I wish I posted this before sending in my entry! I forgot what I titled it, but it was probably something boring like Flower Eiffel Tower heh.

    This is awesome. My daughter would love this for her room. I am not crafty at all. You should consider making these to sell. If u do let me know bc I would definitely buy one!!
