I thought I had dyed and gone to heaven when I watched a segment of the Martha Stewart show where a guest demonstrated how to make paper flowers. She demo'd small flowers but it was the large ones she had on display that took my breath away!!
I knew I had to make them as fast as I could get my hands on large enough sheets of crepe paper. There in lied the problem. I could not find crepe paper large enough anywhere! All I could find was small crepe paper streamers, that were in no way large enough for the size flower I had in mind. In fact I ended up purchasing a large roll of heavy duty crepe paper from papermart.com . They had a crazy amount of colors to choose from and was very reasonably priced.
I stuck my flowers in an old antique iron pitcher, and I love them to pieces! If you are interested in the tutorial see this link on Martha Stewart's website. These flowers would be great made big or small, as center pieces or boutonnieres for a wedding!
