Mother's Day Paper Flower Bouquet

What do you get when you take 12 X 12 Cardstock Shop cardstock and add a beautiful file from Dreaming Tree? The most beautiful paper flower bouquet for Mother's Day!  

Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility.  Excited to bring a fun flower bouquet I made.

Supplies Used:

I made this gorgeous floral bouquet from the Alluring Florals Bundle from Dreaming Tree.  You can find a wonderful tutorial by Leo on YouTube, just follow the link I provided.

I made this for my mother for Mother's day so I stuck with the purple family of cardstock as it's her favorite.  I added a bit of peach for an accent color.

I started with the Fantasy Flower that was a made up flower by Dreaming Tree.  I think it is absolutely a gorgeous flower and I used Bazzill Fourz Pixie Dust  and  Bazzill Mono Nixon, for the stamen of this flower.

Next up is a stunning rose made with the American Crafts Peach.  I also used this color as the base /background to my pot that holds my flowers.  I think it gives the purple just the right "pop" that it needed.

The third flower I made was a simple, but pretty, mum in Bazzill Mono Heather with the American Crafts Peach for the stamen.  This helped tie it in with the rest of the flowers.

Last, but not least, I made this gorgeous Iris with Bazzill Fourz Fairytale and American Crafts Lemon for the inside.  I then used Bazzill Mono Apen for the leaves.

 For the panels on the peach container, I had one piece of Bazzill Dotted Swiss Grape Jelly that I thought went perfect with my theme.  I think it looks stunning .   I then topped it with some purple and peach rhinestones, I had in my stash, around the bottom rim.

Using some baby's breath I had in my stash, I stuck some in and about the arrangement to finish it off.

One last look at the finished project.  I can say, this is one of my all time favorites.  You can never go wrong with Bazzill, American Crafts and a file from Dreaming Tree!  

Till Next time!

  • I made the same thing 2 years ago for my mom for Mother’s Day. She has it under glass in her living room and her guests can’t believe it’s really paper. Beautiful work Christi!
