Paper Flower Arrangement Tutorial

How about this Mother's Day you switch things up from the "traditional" bouquet of flowers to this:

Paper Flower Arrangement Tutorial




This project is so quick and easy, even the craft-challenged can do this one.  Shall we get started...



Here's what you need:
One jar or vase {with a narrow neck if possible}
Small branches from your yard
Paper scrap booking flowers {available at Michael's on scrapbook isle}
Glue gun and glue
Buttons in fun colors to coordinate with your flowers
Scissors


STEP ONE:
Trim the stems to your liking. I find that the fewer the branches the better the finished product looks.  Notice that I left a few leaves on the branches for a natural look.


STEP TWO:
Put together a few sets of your favorite flower combinations with a coordinating button for the middle.  Here is one of mine:


Now glue the layers of flowers on top of each other. 




Then glue the button down in the center.


STEP THREE:
Glue the paper flowers to the ends of your stems.


Now, make some more flowers and glue them to the ends of the other stems.


Last, arrange your flowers like so:


You can even add a simple ribbon/bow to your vase for a little extra somethin-somethin:


Then present your lucky Momma with your adorable and immortal creation!

Happy Crafting!

I will be linking this project up to these super duper cool link parties.
