I've been wanting to try my hand at making some giant paper flowers, ever since I saw the gorgeous giant paper poppies, here. Fortunately for me, we are in the midst of preparing for a family wedding, and a chance to satisfy some of my crafting desires! I thought I'd share a little sneak peek at some of the very large paper flowers I've been working on, and my eight year old was gracious enough to put on her flower girl dress to give the photos just a bit of wedding flavor. I should add, my flowers are just a bit different from the ones that inspired me, and I hope to provide a tutorial for you in the next few days, or at the very least a photo of the templates I used with some size guides.
In the mean time, collect your supplies, namely very large sheets of paper, some wooden dowels and some green paper for stem details. To make two large flowers and two smaller flowers I used four sheets of Canson art paper— you know the size that has to be rolled up to take home.....or maybe like me you have some paper hanging out waiting for the perfect project? If so, take my word for it, this is the perfect project!
I've just posted a tutorial for this project, take a look here.
I'm sharing this project over at Carolyn's Homework with her new linky party here.
