Making Flowers from Paper

Here is my first attempt at making paper flowers.
paper flowersI see these all over the place on the internet and I thought it looked pretty simple.
Plus - as you have seen - I love bare branches for decorating.
I used these little branches I collected at my mom's house (where there are a million trees on her property) and glued these pinkies on with a glue gun. I think they ended up looking like camellias

I did this vignette on my mantle a few weeks ago (yes, it's time to change it!) before any of my flowers started blooming when I was in desperate need of something "floral" to weed out the winter cobwebs.
Off came the dark greens and pine cones and wintery things and out came white and pink just for spring.

If you would like to know how I made these just let me know and I'll post a tutorial - or at least I'll attempt to.

In the meantime, do you like these little cuties?paper flower tutorial from marie claire idees
