DIY Paper Flowers You Can Make

[REPOST/EDITED]Sometimes the easiest way to add your own personal stamp on your home without spending a lot of cash is to make something crafty. For me and Steve, that means being really picky about what kind of crafty projects we use, because we like a clean, sophisticated look with a touch of warm, family friendly personality! While we always enjoy fresh flowers in our home, these DIY paper flowers are elegant, beautiful and yet still creative. (Oh, and they are paper, so they are affordable.) Paper wedding flowers are also really popular. You get all the floral gratification, with none of the sticker shock! You can also use these projects for parties and events. Try thinking of traditional crafts in new ways…these aren’t your typical tissue paper flowers! (Yes, all those gorgeous flowers below, are PAPER!) Try your favorite of these DIY paper flowers!
