Did a trial run on the paper flowers I posted about yesterday. Please give feed back because when I sent a pic to the Fiance (currently out of town) his only response was “aren’t they a little tall” AHHHHHH! Anywho, I painted them a light yellow because the white was too bland for my taste. I would obviously need to fill it up a little more but I was trying to get an idea of how it would look before making more. Any feedback or suggestions would be very appreciated at this time before I give up and elope. HAHA!

Oh those are cool! I would love to see them a little more close up! I think they would be great as just a few in a vase or as a large bunch! Are you using them as centerpieces?

I like them! They look like pretty… poppys I think?
I don’t think they are too tall. It’s just a little bare, which you already know. 🙂
Do you have any ideas for what else you will be adding?
Oh… and are planning on painting all of them? Or…. just buying yellow paper later.

@MissMedic: I’m planning as using them as part of our centerpiece. We are having a rustic theme and I have sliced up a tree which will be the base, then this will go on it along with a metal lanter tea light holder, & a small jar with some glass stones at the bottom and a floating candle. I have a wedding room set up at my maid of honors house so I’ll have to go over there and put everything together and take a picture.
@Tunacupcakes I am going to paint them so that I can do a good variety of colors. I will probably do a little more detailed coloring on these if I decide to use them so they don’t look bland.

I admire your DIY dedication! 🙂
I think they look very sweet and sound like they will match perfectly.

For those who didn’t read your other post, here is the inspiration pic.
Because they are small, I do think there needs to be lots of them or else use a filler flower like baby’s breath etc.

Those turned out great, so pretty. Something that I have not seen before. Great Job.

Very, very cute! Just curious, how much time does it take to make 1 flower?

Very cute so far. But as said before I think you need a lot of them to really pack a punch. They look bare with just the few. Keep on going, it will look adorable.

Very nice, they look just like the picture!
If you wanted to do a bunch at a time, you could tea-stain the paper with a big brush.

Thank you all for your wonderful feedback. I’ve actually started to get really excited about these! They are so inexpensive and easy to make. Will post when I get a full set together. Trying to finish up the last of my invitations right now so this is on hold for a couple of days.
@pink.sequins For one flower (if I paint it) it probably only takes 2-3 mins to make. I started doing everything in bulk one step at a time. But once you do one it’s a breeze past that. Very easy to pick up on.
