Paper Flowers for Missa's and Sean's Wedding Reception
Pinterst. I love the fullness of these flowers. I love the variety in this arch of paper flowers. And then I saw these. I knew that I needed to make some paper peonies. I pulled out my paper flower book that I had been given for Christmas, and consulted this website before getting started. Then I ran into a snag. I could only find a few colors in the heavy weight crepe paper that I needed, so I bought some white crepe paper and a few cans of spray paint. I was worried that the paint would cancel out the best qualities of the crepe, but it did not. So, I was in business. I spent two evenings making paper flowers while I watched the last two Harry Potter movies and then some other randon and interesting videos. I really got into making the flowers. I am hoping to find time to make more of them.
My only real challenge is trying to figure out how many I should actually make. Ellie likes them all and will use as many as I create.
I'm happy to be part of making a dream come true.
