I tried my hand at paper flowers last weekend. After a very sweaty walk to the Paper Place on Queen, and then a quick pop-in to the Dufferin Mall Dollarstore + Wal-Mart, I attempted to craft some paper flowers.
While at the Paper Place, i easily spent an hour looking at all the neat stuff they had in there… also cooling down, it was a billion degrees outside and i was in no hurry to head back out. I picked up a few bits and pieces, but most importantly i picked out some Japanese Watermark Tissue to be able to try my hand at these neat roses i saw on a vlog that the Paper Place had posted… for your viewing pleasure, here it is: Wedding Bells + The Paper Place Make Paper Roses.
Since i was in the crafting mood (the mood don’t last long) i thought i’d also give this little tutorial on paper roses a shot. For these i used pages from the billions of wedding magazines i’ve acqured over the last two years.
And friends. Here is the result. (you can see i gave up rather quickly.. this is what happens when drinking red wine while crafting… you get sleepy!)
I have a bit of a ways to go… but i think they look cute!
