I’m blogging about paper flowers today because I came across these stunning flowers shown on the wreath above by Bo Bunny design team member Tonya Dirk. Aren’t they gorgeous?? She hasn’t posted the wreath on her blog as of yet, but you can find it on the Bo Bunny blog.
I asked Bo Bunny if Tonya might have a tutorial for making these flowers and was directed to Juliana Michaels’ (also a Bo Bunny design team member) blog where she made similar flowers in a smaller size. Juliana, in turn, refers to yet another blog with a tutorial (its number 9 below).
So that got me scouring the web for other paper flowers. You’ll see that I found quite a few!
All of the flowers shown below are made out of paper and come with tutorials on how to make them.
