Apparently paper flowers have come a long way since the tissue paper carnations of our grade school years! These are lovely enough to serve as a centerpiece for dinner or a decoration for a buffet table. Take a look!

Here are a few different ideas for flowers that we've come across recently. All of them look easy to duplicate in whatever color or combination of colors you might be going for. We're also eying our recycling box and thinking some of those the junk mail glossy ads might look nice re-purposed in flower form!

And last but not least, PaperSource has several different paper flower kits that mimic poppies, daffodils, magnolias, and others. The kits include paper for the flowers, templates, and wire and colored tape for the stems. The template can then obviously be re-used with whatever paper you might want.
