Paper Bouquet Design Process
Considering a paper bouquet? Not sure what the paper flower design process is?
Then I’ll share it with you my lovely!
If you’d like to find out more, read on to discover all about the paper flower design process.
Flipside bouquets will still be looking glorious long after your final guest has collapsed into their pit. In fact, they’ll last a lifetime, and will be a highly personal reminder of your joyous occasion. Handcrafting them is a labour of love, taking several weeks and many glasses of wine. But I love it (the bouquets, not the wine. Ok, the wine too.)
Let me walk you through the creative journey of a paper bouquet. This is the story of you – the route you’ll take on way to holding the bouquet of your dreams.
Do you like ’em big n bold or ickle and cute?
I state sizes rather than the number of flowers, as that will depend on what size flower you pick. For example, a medium bouquet with large star blooms will only have 7 flowers (stems). However, if you choose to have a small swirl roses, your medium bouquet may include 12 or more flowers (stems.)
The paper flower design journey is an evolutionary one – each bouquet grows with it’s own style and beauty.
Colour me freakin happy
Some Brides prefer solid block colours – they’re bold, dramatic and definitely a statement. Others prefer floral patterns, classic polka dots or stripes. The possibilities are endless. I don’t carry stock papers, as each piece it utterly unique. I wouldn’t want to drag you down a design path that isn’t right, just because I have a shizzle load of hot pink polka dots (I do by the way. Damn you Google!)
Instead, I’ll listen to the colours you like, get a feel for the type of wedding you’re having (vintage, urban, disco……err…yeah, that’s a thing) and source papers specifically FOR YOU. I can create blooms from sheet music, comics, football programs, include your vows or first dance lyrics too.
The flower centres are finished off with buttons, which we can select together, or you can leave the choice to me. You can also include mini sparkle gems, which look really sweet for flowergirls. If you like the idea of a felt and charm bouquet, but prefer the paper flowers, I can add charms to the middle of 5 and 3 point star flowers.
Finishing Magical Touches
The bouquets in the images below are an example of how your bespoke piece will look. Yours will be totally unique and therefore will differ. Don’t forget I can adjust the colour scheme to suit your wedding.
ERMAGERD!! How do I get one of these?!?!
