How to make paper Hawaii lei? - DIY

Some weeks ago I was a decorator of my friend's bridal shower. I wanted to create a special and spectacular necklace that showed we're in the same celebrating group. So I searched on the internet to find out how to make paper Hawaii necklace, called lei. I found some instructions but I created my own version.

As the decorating colors were pink and green I bought different shades of pink crepe papers. However the bride-to-be had white floral necklace.

Here is my first and documented #DIY project :)

First, I decided to make 9 flowers so I cut out 9 pieces of 7cm x 7cm squares of each colors. After I put them on-top of each other - light top and dark bottom.

After that, I put my finger in the middle, folded up the layers and I strongly twisted the bottom. If you want, you can put some sallotape of the bottom of the flower but it's not necessary. Then I slightly pull down and lifted the edges of the papers, until I was satisfied with the look of the flower.
