@Pixienickie:  I have made the Kusudama origami for bouts & cocktail hour decor.  I used 12″x12″ paper, not cardstock –lighter, to make these (1st & 3rd pic)

 

I have also made these using just regular white copy paper that I paint before assembling (the painting part is easy).  The oversized ones are for centerpieces, but I also did much smaller versions for corsage pins. (2nd pic).

 

i have the tutorials here if interested: http://craftywedding.wordpress.com.  There are several tutorials on here,  when I’m on my regular computer I can send you the direct tutorials if you like.

My are still in work, so no pictures.  I started cutting out roses and quickly realized how much work I had created.  So I bought a Sillhoutte Cameo and have bought some of the paper flower patterns from the website.  Its going great so far!

Yes ma’am! I did exactly what you did: I made my bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages for the grandmas. And then I hired a florist to do centerpieces.

I wanted them to look a bit more realistic than the felt flowers I usually see online, so I didn’t use any buttons or embroider my flowers. I used felt, and I love them.

I followed basic online tutorials for making felt roses and chrysanthemums, then played around and designed my own daisies and other flowers. When it was time to attach the stems I couldn’t find any tutorials that worked for me, so I made up my own method and posted a tutorial on my blog:

Hope this helps, and good luck!!
