DIY: Paper Flower Bouquets

On our first date, B surprised me with a sweet, origami flower and since then, I've loved the look of paper flowers.  What's better than receiving a lovingly handcrafted paper flower? Making your own of course and Paper Platypus offers kits to do just that!

The DIY kits cost $24 and includes everything you need to make 12 paper flowers in a variety of different color choices.  What a fun idea for a project with your little one or to make you own paper flowers for a party, wedding, or to cheer up a dull office.  If you'd rather not make them yourself, Paper Platypus offers pre-assembled flowers that are ready to ship.  I'd like this kit to use on a rainy day...

I love paper flowers, we made quite a few for some wreaths for our wedding. The kits make it easy! :)

that kit's my favorite too. I just love mums, and the colors in that one are amazing.

This is a great idea and the paper flowers in the pictures look awesome! I love the look of flowers in a room. I'm setting up my classroom and wanted to have some flowers, but wasn't going to because of allergies. But this is a great alternative.

Oh how pretty they are, and the best part is you never have to throw them out. Thanks for sharing this idea.
