DID YOU KNOW?

Using a combination of textures when making paper flowers, like with these Encyclopedia DIY Flowers, makes your paper flowers even more aesthetically-pleasing. Encyclopedias, books, sheet music, newspapers, and magazines all look fantastic mixed with tissue, crepe, or any other solid-colored paper. If it's old and yellowed, it will give your bouquet a vintage feel as well. Besides bouquets and table centerpieces, DIY paper flowers can be used as hanging or wall decorations in your home (some paper flower designs are perfect party decorations), as photobooth or photoshoot props, or as any other sort of backdrop. Because paper flowers can be made with nearly any type of paper you can imagine, certain styles of paper flowers can also be formed into wreaths, strung into garlands, or formed together as gorgeous gift toppers. When you are making paper flowers, even when following a tutorial, you can use the colors that complement your tastes so that you get the ideal look every time. And, unlike real flowers, paper flowers can't wither and die. This is one paper craft every crafter should learn to make based on the practicality alone.
