Welcome to my creative place...
Making paper flowers is one of my favorite projects. Although, they usually end up on albums or tags. It never occurred to me to actually make a floral bouquet. Well, until now...


Start by selecting a vase. Use hot glue and place a Styrofoam block in the center of the vase and cover with moss.

TO MAKE LIGHT PURPLE FLOWERS:
Use Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die and mulberry paper to cut out flowers. Spray cut outs with Carpathian Bluebells by Lindy's Stamp Gang. Allow to dry and layer petals on top of each other. I used a small white flower, from I am Roses , for the center of each flower. Use floral tape and wire to create each flower stem.

TO MAKE DARK PURPLE FLOWERS:
You will need about 2-3ft of crepe paper, from a roll, for each flower. Pinch the end of the paper and continue to roll and twist until you form a flower. Add a pearl bead to 12" of floral wire and place through the center of flower. Use Deep Plum Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels and spray each flower. Allow for the flowers to dry and wrap remaining wire with floral tape. You are now ready to begin arranging your bouquet.
