One of my favorite people is graduating with her Ph.D in English Lit in a few weeks, so I wanted to make something special for her. I was flipping through my new Do It Yourself magazine and saw a basic tutorial for turning old book pages into paper flowers and I decided I'd give it a shot. There are lots of little steps, so it's time-consuming, but really fun (and the results are great)!
I'm planning to make her a dozen or so, but here's what I've got done to start.
A couple of the first flowers I made:
I found another tutorial for tiny flowers. I'm thinking about making a few more of the little ones to mix into the bouquet, since they are so cute:
Here they are with some greenery added:
And here's one completely finished:
I'll update this post as I get more done!
If you have any tips for making paper flowers, or links to tutorials for other types of paper flowers, please share! I'd love to make a mixed bouquet!
Thanks for looking, and for your feedback!
