Thank you for this! I will be using crochet flowers for our bouquets (I can’t crochet/knit but have enlisted crafty friends), but they are too time-consuming to make for the centerpieces.  I love this idea, because I can do it myself! Could you post some pics? Thanks Bee!

I love this!! I would love to see the pictures from your wedding and how you used these when it comes time.  Also.  Do you think if i crumpled them all and left them in a ball that could work and then uncrumple them the week of the wedding? I am about 11 months out but I would love to start working on this to kill some time.

I absolutely LOVE these! I live in Fairbanks, Alaska but my wedding will be in Milwaukee.  I think I could make them, leave them in the ball until they are shipped to Milwaukee and open them up prior to the wedding.  Thank you so much for this great DIY idea!

That’s awesome! I think you can also spray coloured water for different effects. Or dip them in coloured water and hang them upside down (clothes line?) for the color to seep to the edge of the petals. You could cut pattern in the circles BEFORE crumpling too!! oh the possibilities are endless. I’m gonna try that!

Thank you so much for this detailed tutorial. I had also planned to do some paper flowers lining the aisle, but I wasn’t so sure I loved the tissue paper ones I had made (I could never find the right color). I have been playing around with coffee filter flowers, but I think these are better because they are more flat on the bottom than the other tutorial I used. I’m so excited to try these in deep red!

I love this! I have been making tissue paper flowers and making poms with them, but I need a LOT of poms, so maybe I will incorporate these too for a different look. Thanks so much for taking the time to put this tutorial together! Much appreciated!
