Autumn Flower Wreath Today I have a tutorial of sorts to share. It is not a full tutorial because 1. I learned to make the flowers from an already pretty amazing tutorial and 2. I left my camera in Ryan’s truck and was too impatient to wait to put it together until he came home so I don’t have photos of the actual attaching to the wreath phase of the project. Sometimes you just have to go with it when the crafting bug gets you. This wreath is a combination of a regular grape vine wreath you can purchase at the craft store, lots of coffee filter flowers and a few acorn and berry sprigs.

Flower Tea Bags Flower Tea Bags painted with tea! Flower Topped Tea Bags make a perfect gift. We started experimenting with tea for Mother's Day and loved the results. Can you believe this color is actually tea? Tissue Paper Carnations Today is the start of Flower Week on Folding Trees. Every weekday, I will be showcasing different types of paper flowers. You may be surprised at the variety of flowers you can make using different paper craft techniques! If you know of any amazing flower tutorials I should include in my round-up, let me know! When I had the idea for Flower Week, I thought I would kick off the week with some flowers that I made myself. I wanted to try some tissue paper flowers, but when I followed various tutorials I found online, the flowers I made weren’t realistic enough for me.

Pomander Balls: Peony Design These peony pomander balls (also known as wedding kissing balls) are very elegant and easy to make. And if you are on a tight budget and need some cheap wedding flower ideas, then these pomanders would be the perfect choice. These pomander balls could be used to decorate the pews, or your reception or even as a bridal bouquet design if you are planning on making your own bouquet. DIY Paper Poppy Another one of my favorite paper flowers that I created last year is this orange paper poppy. I made two dozen of them to decorate my daughter’s 18th birthday party last year mixing it with a black and white French theme. As one of my favorites and loving the happy orange color, I have since used these poppies for paper brooches, to wear in my hair and of course to add that special touch on top of gifts. This PDF includes the watercolor print for both the front and back of this flower. I find this style works best with a laser printer and am delighted to find that FedEx Office can print this for you for around $1 a flower. Have them print it onto their regular printer paper, text weight.

Coffee Filter Flowers Hello lovely readers, Apologies for the delayed post today.

Butterflies Are Free... so, in my usual wanderings i happened upon this butterfly wreath... very cute with all those little butterflies made of beautiful calligraphy and and vintage ads! but $25? nope...not going to spend $25 on something that i'm not quite sure i will adore... but i had a plan!

50 Ways to Package Holiday Cookies: Ideas & Inspiration for Wrapping Cookie Gifts I have been on a little cookie kick since baking a couple batches a few weeks ago for Thanksgiving. See, I have not made homemade cookies for quite a long time {mainly due to my little guys allergies and the fact he can not eat any of them}.

So with cookies on my mind and the holidays right around the corner,this weeks inspiration and ideas post is packed with fifty ways to package holiday cookies.
