Paper Flowers

I'm late, I know... we went skiing.   This is what I did, I should say we did because it was a joint effort between my daughter-in-law Jamie and I.  Paper flowers.  She had done some for their apartment out of construction paper and was explaining the project to me.  I had some paper, a brown paper bag that I had coated with acrylic paints which we decided might work.  It did and the result is the copper colored flowers you see in the jar.  Armed with that knowledge we decided to add more color so we coated another brown paper bag and finished the bouquet.  The process is relatively easy though I haven't tried writing them out.  I may because it's a project my Creativity Class can do... thinking about that... definately.... they can do that tomorrow night.  Better go coat some paper!

I like the way the flowers came out. What did you use for the centers?

Looks like you two had some fun making these......and they look good too. Great use for paper bags. Will keep that in mind for my young grand daughter in future!!.

Thank you guys... it was fun and I have since made some of the paper towels that I use to soak up paint. I save them because of the wonderful color and discovered they make great flowers.

This is gorgeous. It feels like having flowers and butterflies right on your indoor table.
