Paper Crafting Week - Part 3: Paper Flower Decorations

I hope you are loving all the paper crafting ideas this week. There are so many great photos and tutorials, I could actually keep going longer than a week. I get such a thrill from discovering these talented women and their amazing creations. On day three, I'm focusing on paper flowers and how versatile they are as decorations on favors and gifts to stunning party garlands.

We've all seen the tissue paper poms hanging over gorgeous party tables. A simple idea brought back from those 70's style paper flowers I couldn't wait to win at the county fair (yes, I was the goofy kid walking around the fair with an enormous colored flower on a stick!), paper poms have made a comeback in quite a stylish way. They seem to be everywhere on the party scene these days.

The popularity of those poms have led lots of ladies to come up with some really creative ways to use tissue paper and crepe paper to make some truly special party embellishments. Just take a look at one of my favorites.....

Aren't these divine? Pinky Lou Lou Party Girl makes "party blooms" party favors from crepe paper, glitter and a few small accessories.

Aren't they so original and adorable?
What little girl wouldn't love hand these out at her birthday celebration!

Another version of the crepe paper rosette is pictured here from Once Wed.
These were actually place cards for wedding tables, but wouldn't they be a special treat
for a birthday girl with a glittered number of her age in the center?
Or what about making these for prize ribbons to give out to winners of party games?
Love this idea!

Icing Designs shares a tutorial on these super easy tissue paper rosettes
using a single sheet of tissue paper twisted and molded into a large rose. They show us how to make everything from gift toppers to wall hangings to garlands using their simple technique.

Dana Made It makes these divine magnolia blooms from paper napkins.
Pretty realistic, I think. Be sure to check out her website for a full tutorial.

Look how beautiful they are as a garland. These would be lovely for a baby shower
or wedding shower, or even to decorate a little girl's bedroom.

This idea from Today's Fabulous Finds is actually a Valentine's box
for a child to hold her Valentine's cards in, but I just love her idea of
making the flowers from gathered crepe paper streamers.

This sweet flower favor box is made from stamped tissue paper and button embellishments. My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence has a video on their
website of the step-by-step process.

Zakka Life shows us how to make miniature versions of paper flowers which are wonderful to use in bouquets or to decorate gift boxes and favor boxes such as the one below.

Martha Stewart crafts makes a very sweet favor box with a miniature tissue flower.
You can find a great tutorial on creating these flowers at 36th Street Events.

Made by Nicole shares a tutorial on how to make these adorable crepe paper ornaments,
but I'm thinking they would make perfect party accessories as well.

And a similar idea is shared by Little Shabby Shack.

And Obsessed with Cupcakes has an easy tutorial on making these
decorative flower cupcake wraps with crepe paper.

Isn't it sweet with a cupcake inside and a ribbon to dress it up a bit?
These would be so adorable at a little girl's garden or fairy birthday party or even
filled with candy or other goodies and given as a party favor.

I hope you all enjoyed these inspiring ideas --
I've got some awesome ideas for crepe paper garlands tomorrow so stay tuned!
