This is Part 3 in a series on Paper Flowers. You can read Part 1 and
Part 2 here.
In Part 1, I showed you different ways paper flowers could be used. Special events and home decor are great places to incorporate them. But, I bet you can think of others. How about as the topping on a beautifully wrapped gift?
Part 2 was all about tissue paper flowers. You probably remember them from when you were growing up. They've gotten a lot more sophisticated though.
This final, post in the series, is about making paper flowers yourself.
You won't find tutorials on every flower you've seen. But you'll find more than enough to keep you busy.
You'll find a wonderful tutorial on making a tissue paper flower into a minimalist flower arrangement on 36th Street Events blog. You can do something simlar with many of the paper flowers you've seen in this series.
At tipnut.com you will find over 45 free tutorials for making various types of paper flowers. You can learn how to make flowers out of plain, recycled, crepe, magazine, tissue, origami, boiled, construction, decorative and parchment paper.
Happy flower making! Don't forget to sweep up the scraps!
