/r/PaperFlowers is a subreddit for crafting flowers and foliage from paper.

Not only is it a fun way to transform something as simple and rather boring as paper into something beautiful it's also something that quite a few brides are considering for their wedding as it's much less expensive than live flowers or even fake plastic flowers.

Plus these handmade works of art will not die. Which, to be honest, is one major drawback to having a fresh flowers.

Learn to make paper Flowers. Hone your skills, show off a little, and help those in need.

This is the place to show off what you've made, how it's made, suggestions, and questions about the art of paper flowers.

Hi there, anyone still left here?

Hey y'all, I started making crepe flowers in April after my older cat passed away and I decided I needed something to keep my mind off it. Happened to see an article about Tiffanie Turner, picked up her book and apart from a brief break to adjust my life around a new puppy, haven't looked back.

Most of the community interaction seems to be on Faccebook and I'm not really a FB fan or user so it'd be awesome if there were some more activity here... be the change time I guess!

I cannot find a deckle edged scissor/tool that will cut medium/heavy crepe paper. Does anyone have a product suggestion? Thanks!

Question about paper flowers with stems

Do you have any YouTube videos or instructions for how to make paper flowers with wire stems so they can be put in vases? I have the stiffer floral wire and have tried to make some before but they just looked messy and a bit flimsy.

I've got dies for the actual flower part-just need to know the best way to "stem" them 🌻

Because your handmade design adds value. Then you too can make a beautiful bouquet.

Tips and tricks please!

Hi, I am making paper flower arrangements for my wedding soon, using both colored printer paper and crepe paper, mainly roses, wisteria, and maybe some other small buds.

Does this cool community have any advice or helpful strategies? I got a hot glue gun to use and will follow youtube videos/pinterest pins that I like.

I hope this doesn’t awaken something in me

My youngest made me a paper flower for Mother’s Day and here we are now as I am ordering coffee filters ( which my spouse is being very smug about when I got the metal one and how I need them now...) and food coloring. What are y’all’s favorite flowers to make? How meditative this looks.

I'm not crafty! Hanging flowers?!

We bought some beautiful paper flowers off of Etsy for our daughter's nursery. Because we may be moving within the year, we are using command strips to make sure we don't damage walls when removing them. We are following the directions for the command strips, but we are having trouble pressing the flowers hard enough to stick to the velcro strips on the wall because we are afraid to mess up the flowers! Any suggestions for pressing the two strips of velcro together solidly without damaging the flowers?!

Thanks!

Which dies for making flowers

I've tried free hand cutting them but I'm a bit OCD and like the neatness of using dies ☺

Which would be your recommendations for decent sized realistic-ish flowers? X

Prairie Fire/Indian Paintbrush?

Has anyone ever made Indian Paintbrush flowers? I love wildflowers and those are one of my favorites, but I can't find silk ones for sale anywhere.

First paper rose. Found a love for this new hobby

First Paper Roses https://imgur.com/gallery/pz6UTe0

I just started making paper flowers and was amazed at how these turned out. I made daffodils first so these roses are only the 2nd variety of flower but definitely feel they will continue to be my favorite. The first took well over an hour to make.

New here, wanted to share my wedding arrangements.

Hello r/paperflowers! Just found this sub & wanted to share my wedding flower decorations and bouquets. I've made everything from scratch except for the dried wheat and leaves. I've crafted around 20 table decorations with glass jars and yarn and assorted crepe paper flowers, two bunches for the civil ceremony table, and my bouquet. I've also decorated a cork board to use as a tableau de mariage and made matching thumbnails for the seating chart cards. I've also made a tiny lapel decoration for the groom. The wedding is less than 3 weeks away and I'm happy that I actually finished everything on time. I live in Italy and a florist would have asked over 1000€ for real flowers, I've managed to cut significant costs, we wanted to pay for everything ourselves and I'm also an avid crafter. Thanks for reading, have a nice day everyone! http://imgur.com/a/vZFOHCo

Using a laser cutter?

I see that a lot of projects suggest using a cricut machine, which I don't have. But I do have access to a laser cutter. Has anyone used one to cut paper for flowers?

Recommendation on how to best make flowers from book pages?

Dying to implement paper flowers into my wedding day (my bouquet hopefully, at least partial) plus other touches at the reception. Was curious about making flowers from pages of books since I'm an avid reader. I didn't know if there was a certain quality of book paper I should keep an eye out for. At one point, I thought it'd be nice to do books in the romantic / love / storybook realm but don't know how realistic that's going to be.

If anyone has any tutorials, I'm all ears!

Newbie here!

Hey everyone. Im a newbie to paper flower making. I've been just casually making flowers with streamer crepe paper while waiting for my rolls to come in. My biggest question so far is, after I'm done making my flower/stem, the stem is majorly sticky from the floral tape. Am I using it wrong or is there a step I'm missing at the end.

Thanks!

US supplier of blush colored paper?

my wife started making paper flowers recently. She bought most of her paper at a local Staples, but they did not have any very light pink / blush colored paper.

Could someone recommend a supplier I could order from online in the US?
