Paper Flower Arrangement

I was so excited about having made this beautiful paper flower arrangement, and then I forgot to show it to you during Christmas.  But I got to thinking that it would be beautiful any time of the year by just changing a few things.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful for Valentine’s Day?  This is another project from our demonstrator-only magazine Stampin’ Success.  I pretty much copied the beautiful bouquet that the Stampin’ Up! home office showed in that publication.  Everything except the gold ornaments and the pine cones were made with just card stock and some Big Shot Dies!

The first flower I started with were the roses.  Using Real Red card stock, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Island Floral Die.  The center is just a small piece of card stock wadded up into a ball.  The glue gun was definitely my friend with this project!  Just use a bone folder to shape the petals and glue everything together.

Next are the lilies.  This is actually my favorite flower in the bouquet – I love real-life lilies, too.  I cut Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot and the Island Floral Die.  The center is Old Olive Stampin’ Pastels sponged lightly along with Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool to make the speckles. 

These are the chrysanthemums – actually the most fun to make!  Just die cut a bunch of Real Red card stock from the Flower Daisies #2 and shape them into flower petals with the bone folder.  So pretty!  This picture also might be better of the tiny little filler flowers in the lower right corner than the next picture I took.

These little flowers were so quick to make!  Just die cut Old Olive card stock with the small flower from the Island Floral Die, snip one petal off then fold them so that two petals overlap.  Punch Whisper White card stock with the Boho Blossom Punch then wad it up and adhere it with hot glue to the center.  I made lots and lots of these to fill in the gaps.  Also a good filler is the green “grass” card stock sliced really thin with the Tabletop Paper Cutter. You can check Artificial Grass Vancouver cost for grass we usually use for all our needs.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my bouquet – I had so much fun making it!
