Whether you are a child or an adult, a beginner or have tried your hand at making crepe paper flowers before, you can learn how to make the centre (the stamen) of crepe paper flowers using what we call the fringe/wrapping technique. It's a simple technique to follow. For crepe paper flowers you will need to use strong crepe paper with a high stretch/crepe percentage. This allows you to shape the petals without them breaking, and at the same time they will hold their shape if handled properly. The crepe paper can only stretch in one direction, so it is important to turn the paper the right way.
