My friend Riv is getting married in October. Her whole wedding has a literary theme, with a special emphasis on Jane Austen.
This past weekend I hosted a bachelorette weekend for her. We spent much of the weekend crafting a fabulous paper flower bouquet for her. The flowers were made from pages of Jane Austen's novels. Take a peek at the process (and try to ignore the fact that I'm in my pajamas):
We mixed the paper flowers with faux greenery from the craft store and voila:
Riv couldn't be happier with her huge, fabulous, personalized, hand crafted wedding bouquet! It took four of us two long nights to create this bouquet, but I think it was absolutely worth the effort! It turned out gorgeous!
A year or two ago I did a tutorial on making paper flowers like these -- without the stems or pistil & stamens. You can find that video below:
Do you get the idea or do you need to see how these book page flowers were constructed? Let me know!
Thanks for stopping by!
