Weekend DIY: Paper Flowers

Amidst the January darkness I am dreaming of flowers, don't you? And since I don't like plastic flowers I'd rather make paper ones. In the size and colors of my choice. A girl can dream, can't she?

Here are three amazing projects for paper flowers, which are on my to do list this weekend.

I like the casual look of the first flower. It is seemingly humble but carries the power of the written word because it is made out of old dictionary sheets. I just love the symbolic nature of the flower. And look at that vase, gorgeous, isn't it? Head on to ocasiocasa for the instructions.

The second one is a romantic Ranunculus flower bouquet that I fell in love with the minute I saw. Although there is no free tutorial for it, the Sunny And Stumpy etsy shop is offering the supplies and the tutorial for $115. That is one precious bouquet, isn't it!

The third one is a stunningly enormous rose that can be made out of creep paper. Drop by to the Green Wedding Shoes for detailed instructions.

What are you making today?
