One of my big DIY Projects is making paper flower boquets for the tables in the reception. I want to make 3-4 per table which means making 75-100 paper flowers. I’m really excited about this project though!
Here are some awesome tutorials for making paper flowers:
My favorite though, is this one from Hello Leelo! or when I originally discovered it, Brickabrack.
I started the process tonight. My plan is to fold and cut the flowers starting now and then make them 3-D starting about 3 weeks before the wedding.
Step 1: Cut double-sided 12″ x 12″ paper into squares.
Step 2: Fold paper according to the tutorial.
Step 3: I like the petals to be symmetrical so I made myself a stencil petal that I then traced onto the folded piece.
Step 4: Cut out and open up!
Now I’ll store these pieces until I’m ready to start making them actual flowers and attaching them to their pipe cleaner stems! : )
