Paper? Did You Say Paper?

These flowers from template from this Etsy site, Sunny and Stumpy.

Paper flowers? Did You Say Paper? Don't want to rush last minute floral arranging? Why not make your wedding bouquet and wedding centerpieces out of paper flowers.  Yes, I said PAPER FLOWERS. 

You may remember making a less complex version of these in scouts or camp as a child, but these DIY paper flowers are not a craft for an eight year old! Tutorials on Knuckle Salad and Green Wedding Shoes if you prefer those to the Etsy options. 

Paper flowers make perfect centerpieces or bouquets, and I particularly love them as boutonnieres or to use as napkin rings.  One of the links above is for a beautiful paper flower wreath! So unique! Your guests will be oohing and aahing all night!  Use smaller paper flowers to decorate place cards.  There's literally no end to what you can do with paper flowers. 

This bouquet is from Robot in Bloom on Etsy.com

Whether you choose to have an Etsy artisan make the whole bouquet for you, like Robot in Bloom, or purchase a template from Sunny and Stumpy, paper flowers make paper flowers a great option for your wedding.
