These are my pretties. (I managed to fix my uploading problems…Sorta.) Don’t mind the shlumpiness of the bouquet; it’s just a quick mock up. These babies are definitely a labor of love, but I adore how each one is unique. =)

I’m really new to paper flower craft, but am totally obsessed with it now. The best part about paper flowers: you can make them ridiculously large. I’m really into the graphic appeal of oversized flowers. Here’s a peony I recently hand dyed using double sided crepe paper. I still need to figure out what type of leaf goes with it…

These are some giant crepe paper roses…they’re HUGE…think large mixing bowl huge. This is made with florist 160g crepe paper:

@renatastone: Those are awesome! I’ve been making coffee filter flowers in normal sizes but this just looks too fun not to try. I’m thinking a giant rose in a jar on side table… as if my tiny crowded apartment needs more decorating.

@renatastone: Love these. Maybe you could do a tutorial, pretty please?

Mine are clay, but I’m adding them anyway.

these are the ones i have so far…  they look better in person, i promise.  the bigger “pomish” ones will be to hang…  the brown one will be the type used to decorate the palm tree trunks, so i dont take  away from the beauty of it all.  and the smaller white and yellow ones are for center pieces and garlands and stuff:)  I still have ALOT to make, but its cheap and i am happy with the result so far.  budgeting to the best of my ability!

@Ronneykay:Did you just make the big ones with whole sheets of tissue paper?

@chasesgirl:  no, actually I made them with just big napkins (not beverage, but luncheon size)

i did the accordian fold on 5 of them (so i get 5 per package)  then i tie them in the middle with the wire, or ribbon, or whatever i have on hand…

then I just move them all towards the middle on one side, then if needed, I just tie around the base of it too and spread them back out again to make a pretty shape.  Thats how the larger ones, and that ivory one is made, but hte ivory one is made using a beverage size napkins and you get 6 per package because there are 30 in there and i use 5 napkins per flower.

i hope that helps.

@Lida – Your bouquet is amazing! One of the reasons I love doing oversized flowers is that I don’t have the steady hand to pull off what you just did! Huge flowers are surprsingly forgiving…lol

@TheFutureMcBride – Clay is super hard to work with…impressive! Once I perfect the hand dying and petal cutting, I would love to do the peony tutorial. However, the giant crepe paper rose tutorial is actually on Martha Stewart and has a nifty video:
