How about you just calculate how many you need, and commit to making a certain number every day or every week?

Honestly, I think you might go crazy. You should enlist the help for a day or two from a few friends. Offer them wine and make a fun day out of it!

Ooh, i love paper flowers- I’d love to see some of your inspiration pictures. I think the trick is to make one centerpiece (or whatever you plan on using them for), get it exactly right, and then figure out how many of everything you’re going to need for the wedding, and go from there.

A hint (having done something similar for my sister’s wedding)- go big. Don’t make a million tiny pieces when you can make 3 big ones for the same effect. If you still have time and energy at the end, that’s when you make the little extra details.

ooh, I would say that it becomes a pain around the 75% mark. Well, at least for me it did. I’m someone who really loves figuring out how to make it work, but by the time I’m trying to finish the project, I’m just so over it.  I would say, start early though, when you still have the motivation!

I made all my flowers. See my Diy post. I used my cricut machine-a die cut machine. I started them shortly after getting engaged-a year and a half before the wedding. I would do them on my off days and do them by steps. It does get annoying after a while but I would just take a couple of weeks off and everything would be fine.

 

hopefully this helps!
