from stretched out crepe-paper with the aid of a near one end of a strip of stretched out crepe pa

blossoms and have handles to them. Its appli

process is carried out. The execution of this in
_ vention is not only simple and the making mate
lo'rial of little cost; vpaper and adhesivebeing the
chief component parts, but the manner of making
the ?ower is simpli?ed by its attachment to the
ovary, in a. way which constitutes an important
technical improvement.

is folded over the wad as indicated at 1 in Fig. 2. 5
This folded over end is then pressed and twisted
aboutthewad to form a ball-like protuberance
8, constituting the ovary pad of the completed
?ower. The paper below this pad is then tightly
twisted to form a paper stem 9 for the ?ower.
The formation of the ball or pad 8 -may be
facilitated by wetting the thumb and fore?nger in
twisting the folded over end of the paper snugly
and tightly therearound, preparatory to contin
uing the twisting to form the stem 9. Thus it 15

blanks Ill to suitable form, these blanks compris- 20
mg the central portion, surrounded by radial pro
jections Illa,‘ of suitable shape. Small paper disks
or leaves ll, successively diminishing in size (see
Fig. 11) are then placed upon the blank l0.
These disks may vary in number and are prefer- 25
ably of different colors.
Further, I preferably
use two or more layers of the petal blanks l0
and stick them lightly together with adhesive,
because this gives the paper more body and con
sistency. The leaves or. disks H are also touched 30
lightly with adhesive to hold them in place.
With any suitable pointed tool, indicated in a
general way at l2, a hole I3 is formed in the
center of the ovary pad 8. A small amount of
adhesive is placed in this hole and the petal as- 35
sembly is placed centrally over the top of the hole.
A small piece of paper, indicated at M in Figs.
7 and 12, is supplied with a small amount of ad.
hesive and is placed centrally over the petal
assembly. The tool point l2 (Fig. 7) is then used 40
to thrust this piece of paper or equivalent mate
rial and petal assembly into the preformed hole
in the pad 8. This brings this piece of material
M to the form of a paper tack, having a central
opening therein.
This piece of material I4 forms the calyx of
the flower while at the same time it unites, in
the most simple and natural way, stem, pad,
petals and calyx into a flower and ?xes them ?rm
ly together. This constitutes an essential feature 50
of my new and simpli?ed process, without which
the production of these flowers would not be feasi
ble. The application of the adhesive to the ma
terial I4 unites the paper tack to the petal. as
sembly, while the insertion of the adhesive into 55
the pre-formed hole in the pad 8 unites the petal
assembly to the pad.
For some kinds of ?owers, the process so far
described is su?icient. However, for other kinds
of ?owers, such for example as those of the bell
or trumpet-shaped type, it becomes desirable to
bring the edges of the petals into overlapping
relation and to unite them with each other.
When that is to be done, the former of Fig. 13,
of arti?cial ?owers from crepe paper, comprising
the steps of folding an end of a strip of such
paper about a ball of wadding and then twisting
the strip of paper tightly into stem formation,
so that said paper and wadding ball form a stem
and ovary pad, preparing the petals by shaping a
paper disk to form a plurality of radial projec
