Giant Paper Rose Flower

She was inspired by a template created by Morgan Levine on Martha Stewart (as was I in the flowers I created for this styled shoot). I just love that this basic idea has inspired different brides to create their own version of giant paper flowers – you might remember these equally awesome giant paper flowers from this wedding I shared last year. :) Thanks so much Nata for sharing how you created your giant pink paper rose + special thanks to Studio Castillero for the photos of the DIY + her wedding!

Her huge paper blooms made such a splash that she started selling them in her shop, and just recently Brittany wrote a great article for Brooklyn Bride about the paper flower trend.

They decided to make these giant fantasy flowers for their spring lookbook, which is aptly titled “Enchantment.” Read below for the story of how this project came to be, and find the full tutorial after the jump.

Each of these projects are my adaptation of something I’ve seen elsewhere. 2. 3. Okay, so let’s begin. Crepe Paper Roses.

Hence my foray into French Beaded Flowers (fun…but takes FOREVER and expensive). A quicker, much less expensive, and very gratifying craft is making Crepe Paper Flowers (CPF.) Making crepe flowers is a classic craft that was popular in the 1950′s. There are two primary methods for making CPF: single petal and continuous petal.

We are only told what supplies to bring and it is always exciting to see what the person in charge has in mind to do.
