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 somethinsomethin:
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.

    This is a great tutorial. I didn’t actually make a flower arrangement (which I plan to do soon) but I used this idea to make a card for a friend. It was quick and it turned out great

    Thanks for sharing!

    the best car wax and polish

    Now you noticed that the chain has stretched so far that you
    can’t adjust the chain slack anymore. Either wax the car yourself afterwards or have it done professionally,
    and it will look nearly as good as it did when it came off tthe showroom floor.
    Make sure to brush out the air vents aas these attract
    dust like a magnet.
