When learning how to make paper flowers like these, there are a few extra ideas to consider. If you'd like to go for a more monochromatic look, you can forgo the tissue paper and make these flowers solely out of book pages. The look of these flowers, with layers made using two different materials, makes the possibilities limitless. You can change the color of the tissue paper, use new book pages, old book pages, or even sheet music. You could even swap out one of the materials for newspaper if you wanted something different. Speaking of different, another cute idea is to write up your own copy and then print it out and use that paper instead of the book pages. This could be anything from inspirational quotes to a poem or a song. Obviously, you won't be able to read it as a whole, but it would be fun to inspect the random words that get folded into the petals. The way you display your bouquet will also give it a different feel.
