DIY Paper Flowers from www.paper-source.com

Recommended Posts

Back in November, Sarah (sassygirl) and I ordered these paper flower kits with the grand delusions of making them for centerpieces. I got mine in the mail like 3 weeks ago, and finally got around to making them today.

Sarah- where are yours? We want to see!!!!

Anyway, the large flower is like 16" in diameter. The small flower is probably 4 inches in diameter. I did the small one first with just plain white copy paper and then got brave with the big one and used some metallic cardstock I had laying around the house. I wanted to save the nice paper that came with the kits until I got better at making them. But, here are the pics of my first attempt:

I think I will experiment with some different papers and see what different results I can get. I think they might be cool with some tasteful embellishment, maybe some glittery stuff or something, so they would sparkle with candles around...I also am not quite sure about how to transport. I could make all the petals and bring them flat and assemble the flowers there, but that would be time-consuming. You can squish the big flower down quite a bit, maybe they could fill a couple boxes. Any ideas? I think a big bundle of them would be cool- if not for the actual table centerpieces, maybe just for the cake table or guest book table? Not sure, just thinking out loud at this point. I just think they are really fun! I'll post more pics after I make some more...

If anyone is interested in ordering, here's the link:

I'm still worried about that too Natalie. I'm still not sure if I'm actually going to use these as centerpieces or not. Jeff actually thinks we should do HUGE arrangements of the little ones, but again- how to get them there! There is NO way I would have time to put them together on site because they are so time consuming.

Maybe they wouldn't be super expensive to ship though because they are so light...hmmm... have to think about that one.

shipping them would probably be the way to go! They are super light and you wouldn't have to worry about them in the box! Just getting there!! You could ship them way early and if they never arrive have a back up plan!
