Learn to Make Paper Flowers!






Yumi and I started making these paper flowers about a year ago. We taught ourselves from a book (Yumi, do you remember the name??).
My friend Phoebe reminded me that I was going to put up a little guide to share the flower love.
This is my very first movie so I'm a bit proud!
Enjoy...

This is stunning! I was so excited about this post that I ran to our stationary shop in my lunch brak and made 1! I was looking for alternatives to bridesmaids bouquets as I dont want flowers at my wedding (I am making a bouquet for myself out of brooches) I am going to use different colour tissue paper as well as add a few thinks, like stick on a butterfly clip????? Awesome Blog!

Special thanks for this post from Holland. I'm trying to be creative for my weddingday. But sometimes theres no inspiration. This is the best post I've found in months! The paper flowers will look great on my weddingday and weddingcards!

hi this i found your video nice and easy and I have tried this with a little colour to it I have used lighter shades of pink inside and growing darker outer layers and a green sheet as the last layer so that it makes it look more natural
