For our wedding a few weeks ago I slaved over hundred of origami flowers from scrapbook paper to make these centerpieces.


I used tree branches that I glued into the flowers for the stems then wrapped them in brown floral tape. The flowers were then arranged in Mason jars. To add some decoration to the mason jars I hot glued a picture of use around it which helped to make it more personal. I designed and printed out the table number hearts and added them in among the flowers. Then they were filled with sand to keep them from tipping over.


All in all I do love how they turned out but I don't think I want to see another origami flower again for some time  Smiley




Thanks for looking!

Congratulations.

The flowers/jars look lovely. What did you do with them all afterward?
