A few people asked how I made the paper flowers for my bedroom. I actually used the directions from here but tweaked them a bit. What I did differently is that I used 2-3 layers of butcher paper instead of one. Just put one square of paper on top of the other and proceed as described - no need to glue them together or something. This way, the flowers will be nicely layered and have more texture. Also, because I did several layers of paper, it makes sense to cut in the center of the layered paper (picture 2). It will be easier to "fan out" the flowers this way. (I hope I´m making myself clear here, my English is clearly at a limit when giving craft directions!).
As for the paper, I used what we call "Butterbrotpapier" here in Germany - basically the paper German moms use for wrapping sandwiches. It´s cheap and did the job. When I look at the pictures from Ruche I´m not sure whether it´s the equivalent of American butcher paper though - their paper looks much softer. However, I guess you can use whatever paper you like as long as it is not too sturdy.
So here you go, paper flowers! Happy crafting!
