- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
I made these DIY paper flower boutonnieres to match the paper flowers I am making for the whole wedding.
I started with the following…
3 different colors of cardstock cut to size
Beaded wheat spray in purple & green
Hot glue gun
Cut out the shape of my leaves.
Cut out, rolled, and glues my paper flower.
Twisted together my two colors of beaded spray.
Glued the leaves together, then glued on the beaded spray, then the rose. On the back of boutonniere I glued the ribbon, then wrapped it around the remaining wire from my beaded spray – which I had bent in half and twisted together to make it work better. Then I glued the end of the ribbon back to the underside of the boutonniere and let a little extra peak out of the side. To seal the ends of the ribbon I held it near a lighter to melt the ends together (polyester ribbon).
