As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. At least that’s what we are hoping for here in the Chicago area where rain has been beyond plentiful. But why wait for nature when you can make your own beautiful paper blossoms?
In his new book, Paper Blooms: 25 Extraordinary Flowers to Make for Weddings, Celebrations, & More, Jeffery Rudell brings us a colorful variety of flowers to DIY. These modern and stylish flowers are crafted from a variety of papers from tissue paper and vellum to coffee filters and cardboard. Using readily available materials, tools, and simple techniques, you can create your own bouquet in no time.
The book begins with a brief introduction and explanation of the tools and techniques you will need. Each gorgeous project is accompanied by easy-to-follow photographs and detailed instructions on how to construct the bloom, stem, and foliage. I’m really loving these calla lilies.
Check the back of the book for inspiration on how to use your blooms – as cupcake toppers, on gifts and place cards, and more.
This hanging decoration is stunning.
