Vintage Paper Flower Ideas

So, 2013 has finally arrived and we have got lots of DIY tips and tutorials to pass on this year, and so without further a do, this weeks DIY Thursday is all about paper. Back in October I filmed a wedding At Somerford Hall and all the decorations were made by Jay (The Bride) . Well I was amazed by her talent, check out her video here and spot,if you can, the  confetti cones, flower hearts, paper flowers. So I’m hoping Jay will send a tutorial of one of the paper decorations she made. But in the mean time, here some ideas to inspire you.

The following extract and work is taken from Weddings By Lilly

The great thing about paper flower crafts, is that with a little bit of resourcefulness and creativity, you can incorporate them into your wedding day for free, using newspaper, vintage books, paper bags, and scrap paper. You can also use things like buttons or pieces from old jewelry to add a little pizzaz.
I’ve never been a huge fan of paper flower centerpieces, but after being inspired by some of these paper flower patterns, I’ve taken a liking to them! You can even mix them in with your fresh flowers to add a splash of color and texture. I especially like the large, dramatic paper flower balls. They look stunning hanging over this dessert table.
