I decided to go with a soft peachy pinks, nudes and pops of black and gold for the color scheme.

I used my Ruby rose template to make the roses and anemones. I also used my latest flower the Diana style rose, which can be designed 2 different ways using the same template! (view Diana Rose tutorial here) and I used my favorite peony template as well.

I loved creating these bouquets for brides, bridesmaids and as centerpieces for wedding and events. I want to share with all the tips I’ve learned over 5 years of paper crafting.
While it is not included in this bouquet the Dahlia template also makes for a great bouquet addition too.
Supplies you will need
  • Paper flower templates (I recommend a cutting machine for some of these flowers I am using in this particular bouquet, but you can always hand cut if you are brave!)
  • 174 gram weighted card stock in assorted shades. I usually tell people to pick 2-3 colors that work well together and then 2 different shades of those colors plus maybe 1 bold color for contrast like I did with the black in my bouquet. This makes it look more natural and not so perfect since nature isn’t perfect!
  • Corsage floral tape
  • 18 gauge wire
  • Leaf greenery templates (most my flower templates come with leaves included)
  • Ribbon of choice
  • Any rhinestone embellishments you wish to add either to the flower centers or the bouquet handle as shown above.
  • Patience!

Remember to be kind to yourself! This takes patience and practice. I’ve been at it for over 5 years and even I still make mistakes a lot!
