Giant Paper Flowers Trend For Summer Events

Happy Friday!  The weather is so perfect now for outdoor events and weddings.  It is almost summer and with mother nature in full bloom in gardens everywhere this time of year, I want to revisit the popularity of paper flowers as one of the biggest event and party trends of this year.

Giant paper flowers are popping up at all kinds of celebrations and events and the paper flower backgrounds are so easy to create on your own from my Etsy shop flower kits available – HERE

All my flower kits come entirely cut for you!  No need to buy digital templates, print them, cut templates, trace and then cut your actual flowers and finally assemble them – that is way too many steps!! My kits are already cut for you and come with full visual step-by-step instructions! Super easy!

The ideas are endless for where to add paper flowers as decorations at a celebration. While they are trending at weddings for photo backdrops – they are now popping up at baby showers, birthday parties, fundraising events, bridal showers and even has home decor.

I offer numerous options in my Etsy craft shop for the smaller flowers too, available – HERE

The smaller three dimensional layered and rolled flowers or rolled roses can be added to just about anything.  Top off favor boxes or guest gift boxes with flowers in your event or wedding color scheme.  Create flower garlands and hang them in rows for backdrop streamer or drape them horizontally as bunting across the front of a party table or behind your table.

 

Add some rolled flowers around electric string lights to make a big statement at your next evening or low lighted event.  Lighting is always a great way to create a mood and ambiance at a wedding reception.

I will be adding many more styles of paper flowers, including crepe paper flowers over the next few weeks in the shop for more summer options too.  Be sure to stop by the shop – Ready Set Craft Kits and favorite my shop (click the heart under my shop name) to get new updates in your Etsy feed recommendations!

 

Each of the smaller flower kits also come with visual instructions as well.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and today I have some stunning gift ideas that you can easily make yourself with paper flowers.  A few weeks ago, I shared some inspiring large scale flower backdrops and if you love these giant paper flowers, you can see that post – HERE

To make smaller paper flowers, you can use paper punches or metal dies to cut them in a cutting machine, such as a Sizzix Big Shot or a Cricut Cuttlebug.

However, if you don’t have a cutting machine and all the metal dies, paper and equipment – you can absolutely short cut some paper flower gifts by visiting my craft shop and order already cut flowers that you can easily assemble and add them to anything.

Stop by my shop for a variety of paper flowers here – READY SET CRAFT KITS

Below are several creative gift ideas you can make with paper flowers for your mother for Mother’s Day.

A beautiful handmade Mother’s Day card with 3-D flowers added on the front.

A paper flower wreath to hang on a door or wall inside the home.

A flower decorated birdhouse.

A flower monogram letter.

Instead of paper flowers, how about paper succulents as a table centerpiece.

A simple flower notebook and pin – perfect for a grocery list pad or a to do list notebook.

Framed wall art featuring handmade paper flowers will make your mother smile every day.

A flower bouquet that will never wilt would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift too!

Easy & Fast Easter Garland Tutorial

EASTER RIBBON GARLAND TUTORIAL

Decorate your Easter celebration or your next party or event with a cheerful,  easy and fast ribbon garland to match your theme.  It will only take you about 20 to 30 minutes at the most to cut all your ribbon and tie them up since minimal assembly is needed, this garland is made from simple loop knots — no glue or sewing needed!  Let’s get started-

Here’s What You’ll Need:

– Twine or Jute String (length depends on how long you want your garland)

30-35 ft. of Ribbon (different designs/several rolls)

– Scissors

How to Step-by-Step Directions:

Step 1. – Measure a strand of twine to the desired length of your garland.

Step 2. – Cut each piece of ribbon to measure 16-20″ depending on your desired length. Use different color ribbons to match the décor of your event or space.

Step 3. – Fold each piece of ribbon in half, lay it around the twine, and pull the cut strands through the loop to create a loose knot (see image #1 and #2).

Step 4.- Repeat step three for all remaining ribbons, alternating colors to create a pattern (see image #3).

Step 5. – Once all ribbons are tied, trim the ends if needed with scissors. Hang the garland to decorate a party table or kid’s room!

You can even keep this garland and reuse it for future parties or room décor.   If you make one in plain pastel colors with no Easter text printed on your ribbon, these would look stunning in a nursery, hanging across the front of a baby’s crib or in a little girls room hanging across her bed headboard. If you want to get your home ready for spring or need some favor boxes, a banner or anything for your Easter celebration- stop by any of my shops by clicking the links below.

The last day to order with first class shipping for receipt by Easter is Wednesday, April 5th and with priority shipping the last day to order is next Tuesday, April 11th.
