I am just amazed at how talented you all are. The pictures are gorgeous. I suddenly have inspiration and motivation to try to do the large crepe paper flower.

Um – I LOVE this. I am not a fan of real flowers, so the more creative and un-traditional bouquets I’m seeing is great! I’m so excited to try and make my own DIY bouquet. I think I’m gonna use paper flowers… maybe some beads too, not sure yet 🙂

These are the fabric flowers I made for each of my Bridesmaids to wear in their hair on my wedding day.

@choolove – it would probably only take you a few weeks if you worked on them every night. I’ve churned out about 20 fabric flowers in a few months but I didn’t work on them every evening. The nights I did work on them I could make 3-4 flowers in a few hours while watching TV.

These are my first few attempts at fabric flower making, not sure if these are going to make it to my bouquet, or in some other area of the wedding.  It only takes me about 10-15 mins on each one so I hope to have a lot to choose from when it comes time to make the bouquet!!

@renatastone:  I love how your flowers turned out!  I want to make the giant paper roses for centerpieces for my wedding next summer.  I have calculated that these roses will cost more than $20 per flower with the doublette crepe paper.  I noticed that you used florist crepe paper which is less expensive and your flowers look great.  Did you think the paper was stiff enough?  I did a trial flower with single sided crepe and it turned out ok but thicker paper would be best!  If you think the floral paper is thick enough where did you purchase yours.  Also I LOVE the bleached flower that you made, do you have instructions for that one?

Thanks!!!
