Paper flowers are such a practical alternative for any special event or wedding! Luckily, keeping a close eye on your budget doesn’t mean you have to turn your dream bouquet into a “I wish…” on your wedding day. With the right folds and snips of your scissors, paper can be transformed into a stunning bouquet!

To create this paper flower bouquet, follow the recipe below using the paper flowers below – you can find the Paper Flower Guides right here!
- (5) Garden Roses in Vanilla Crepe Paper
- (4) Anemones in White & Black Crepe Paper
- (4) Anemones in Sweet Pea & Black Crepe Paper
- (3) Anemones in Baby Pink & Twilight Mauve Crepe Paper
- (3) Anemones in Bubble Gum & Black Crepe Paper
Step 1. Begin with four paper Garden Roses. Using floral tape combine the stems and create a cross pattern.
Step 2. Add in the Sweet Pea Anemones, alternating within the Garden Roses and securing the stems at the base with floral tape. Secure another Garden Rose in the center of your bouquet using floral tape.
Step 3. Around the center Garden Rose, alternate two baby pink and white anemones and secure the stems with floral tape. Place three Bubble Gum Anemones around the center Garden Rose and secure the stems with floral tape. Add in the remaining Two White and Two Baby Pink anemones at the bottom of your bouquet. Secure the stems with floral tape.
Step 4. Trim the stems with wire cutters for a clean finish at the bottom of the bouquet. Add in fresh foliage from your garden or local florist – or add in silk greens for less maintenance. Simply secure the foliage with floral tape at the base of your bouquet and add fabric and/or silk ribbon for the finishing touch!
