GIAAAAAAANT PICTUUUUUUUURE!

These were the paper bouquets my bridesmaids and I carried. My husband really wanted paper flowers as opposed to live florals, so I spent a gazillion hours on these. Each petal had to be traced, hand cut, glued to a wire, shaped, and wrapped to another wire with floral tape to form a flower. Each flower took about an hour. So… yeah. They took a while.

The groom’s party and our dads wore paper bouts that looked like mini calla lilies. They were pretty rad.

I did a combination of paper flowers and silk. Then for the guys it’s all paper with some beaded decoration.The bouquet photos are before I wrapped the stems with ribbon.

These aren’t bouquets, but I made paper flowers for our escort cards!

@bakeapple:  Another NS Bee, I’m so excited! 😀 I’m not making my own bouquet because I am terrible at crafts, but I really love the look of them. I actually think the first one is nicer than the more complicated one!

@bakeapple:  Oh, definitely a punch! Each flower was made up of five or six flower shaped punches. It still took a while, but I would have passed out if I had to cut the petals by hand! Lol
