My Creative Space - Giant Paper Flower Wedding Bouquets



I made these giant paper flower bouquets for a local bride who found me through a friend of a friend! They were fun to make and I love the colours the bride chose. The girls were wearing a dusty pink dress and I think the grey would have looked stunning!



The tissue paper held it's shape well, I just hope it didn't rain - the wedding was on the Gold Coast! The brides flower was made from a crinkly tissue paper which was a lot firmer and I think I preferred the shape and look. I used gum tree sticks and lightly sanded the bumps and lumps off!! My brides dream wedding flowers were inspired by this bride!



Grab a cuppa and wander on over to Kirsty's for a creative feast!

They are beautiful! So striking.
How funny I've spent the last few days with fabric flowers on my mind and brushing up techniques and finding new tutorials on the web. I keep stumbling across paper flower tutorials and am just loving them more and more. Thanks for another link!! x
