    Those are cute. 

    What color dresses are your girls wearing?

    I made paper bouquets too! My flowers were different than yours, but I still had trouble getting them all together.

    I found that it helped to bunch them into sets of three and tape them together, and then bunch the threes with 2 other bunches of three and tape those together, and then put all those bunches together ectect until I had a bouquet!

    Here are some pics of mine:

    If you look on youtube at how a florist arranges real flowers there are some good tips and they work well for paper.

    @DeathByDesign:  Oh I love your flowers?  Sorry for thread-jacking, but would you mind sharing where (if you can) you learned how to make them?  

    OP I love your flowers, they’re so cute and fun!!  I would make the white ones a little smaller if possible, because they kind of overwhelm the others…but if you want them to stand out more then nevermind.  How did you make them??

    It’s cute but I don’t absolutely love it.  Maybe making the handle thicker and tying a nice ribbon on it will help for looks.  I think I’d like it more if there were more flowers in the bunch, but I don’t know if that would make it harder or not.

    @tbskelly     Love your bouquet ๐Ÿ™‚


    I was having the same problem with those flowers.  I ended up adding tissue paper flowers and using this floral foam ball cage thingy to add shape and a handle.

    @tbskelly:  Yours look great!!  I couldn’t find gems big enough to cover the ‘hole’ in mine…hence the little rosettes.
