DIY Paper Flowers

This weeks blogging challenge was kind of fun.  Make it.  Simple right?!  Pick a pin or project that you have been meaning to do and make it!

I have boards and boards full of ideas and projects on Pinterest just waiting for me to “make them”!

This time around I was looking for something simple and something that I could put my own mark on.  And so I started out with this idea via Martha Stewart that I have had on my DIY Paper Crafts pin boardfor some time now!

Martha used cupcake liners to make her paper flowers, but I used one of my all time favorite crafting mediums my vintage encyclopedia book pages instead.

They are simple looking and they were simple to make.

So simple that I made two little bouquets for my house on this rainy snowy day in Wisconsin!

And since I did not follow the tutorial exactly I thought I would share a few details of what I did specifically!

I cut circles with scrapbook scissors and then threaded them onto floral wire I had around my house… must have been from a different project!

I then used just a bit of the floral tape to secure my flower in place.  I did this with 3 flowers and then secured them all together to make one large flower.

And finally I secured the wire around a branch.

A simple look and a fun little project right?!
