April Showers Bring Paper Flowers?

Ok, fine. Its not april yet but paper flowers are a great way to enjoy a few blooms before your bulbs poke their little heads up. I don't know about you, but I am ready for the MN winter be over. I am itching for spring, sunshine, and most of all, flowers!  and the best part about paper flowers is you don't need a green thumb to make them!

I found this site that has a ton of tutorials to make any paper flower you can think of out of crap paper to origami paper and everything in between. Get creative!

These are so beautiful, its hard to believe they're made out of paper!

Big tissue paper poms are a cheep and chic' addition to a decor. You can theme them for a party like the photos above, or incorporate them into a child's room or office to add an eliminate of whimsy to the space.

In the shop, I incorporated these simple tissue paper flowers into the 4 birch trees that line the store window. It certainly helps it feel more like spring around here! 

Another twist on the paper flower concept are these little sweet things! I used a flower punch that I bought at the craft store and started punching out of an old cool! I did a few out of the pink and layering them adds dimension and texture. I haven't decided what i'm making out of these yet but they would be great party confeti, detail on a homemade card or in your scrapbook. I'm working up to a mix-media piece...but you'll have to stay tuned for that :)
