The One with the Paper Flower Wedding Bouquet


Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Check out the paper flower wedding bouquet I made for the American Crafts Blog:

For my blog assignment this month I was asked to make a project - so anything except a layout - using the new I Do line. I thought a paper flower bouquet would be fun so I googled "paper flower bouquet" and found some great and simple instructions here:

It took me a few tries to get the roses looking how I wanted them to, but practice makes perfect! I recommend sitting in front of a good movie (I watched The Guardian and 500 Days of Summer) or listening to your favorite tunes while making this project because it takes awhile to cut out all of the patterns and assemble the flowers together - but it's so worth it in the end!
