@SouthernGirl:  Umm I think that you might want to try cutting your pages into a spiral shape with those fancy cutting scissors and roll and glue the flowers much tighter. That will make them look much more like the inspiration flowers. You may even need to use two pages together. If you want I can look for a tutorial that is easy peasy. These flowers are not to flowery (not at all trying to hurt your feelings, some tutorials are just flops.) I do love your plan though! 😀

I would try finding different sized jars (recycle bins!) and wrapping them in twine around the middle and hot glueing some of your flowers to it, putting the led candle inside. I think alternating that with the lace will be dreamy.

Please keep me updated on your progress. I think you have a great plan!

@SouthernGirl:  I think you show promise as a crafting goddess! I would cut thinner spirals and use hot glue. I seriously love that stuff! Fiance says with hot glue and duct tape I could rebuild the world! :p

 they don’t really look like flowers to me to be honest.  

Here’s an easy tutorial for felt flowers, you can probably do the same with paper.

This tutorial for roses looks like what they did to make the paper flowers in your inspiration pic

@secondchances:  Looks better then what I could pull off, no ounce of craftyness in my body! But I think the other bee’s had really good suggestions. Good luck, come back and show us when you are done 🙂

I love these, wish they matched my theme. The pearl pins in the middle are beautiful 🙂

Love the idea of putting paper flowers on books: it”s something really unique and shows off your personaility!!

I think if you want to add a little pop of color, old color glass vases would be pretty and add a little to the vintage look of your flowers.  Might be a good summer to start tag sailing!
