Giant Paper Rose Flower

Giant Paper Rose Flower
If you loved the beautiful DIY wedding this morning and Nata’s gorgeous paper flower bouquets, you are in luck as Nata is sharing how she crafted them with us! 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! Step 1: Cut the petals Cut 5-6 teardrop petals and 15-6 heart-shaped petals from the petal colored crepe paper. VERY IMPORTANT: Crepe paper is directional so it matters which way you’re cutting the paper. Stack 2 pieces of crepe paper on top of each other then place 1 copy of template over the crepe paper and staple. And there you go!

Soon, the idea for some sort of pom pom flower started bouncing around in my head, and this is what I came up with. How to make pom poms? I googled around and found a number of tutorials, including several that use the cardboard donut method, which can be found here, here, and here.

The Bugbytes: Twine Flowers Hi, this is Michelle from Lady of Leisure Ink - thank you Pam for letting me come and play at your blog. Last year I did a twine exchange with a group of crafty friends here in Colorado, and ended up with some beautiful twine. We all chose a colour and dyed our own twine and enough for everyone else. So now I have lots of very pretty twine and wanted to come up with a different way of using it - this is my idea, Twine Flowers. You really don't need any special equipment to do this, if you have twine then I pretty sure you can find the rest of the items in your stash.
