Sitting in work making paper flowers has turned into something of a revolution as so many people have been asking how to make them or telling me how pretty they are. I'm in awe of their simplicity and beauty and can't wait to get them all together and see what they look like as a group.
Here's a few quick pictures taken on my phone and camera of the small flowers

I've made quite a few card flowers now too, there's still some to finish off but I've made some giant tissue paper flowers whilst these have been drying out.

Here's the giant tissue paper flowers...it's getting a bit floral around here isn't it? Sorry about that...

I have promised a certain someone, Medha, a 'how to' on the ruffle flowers and I will do soon but my arms are hurting now as I've been making things all day, sorry! If anyone wants me to show you how to make any of the other flowers let me know and I'll get photos done as I go along to show you all. Hope I haven't bored you all too much with wedding talk, I'm getting really really excited now whenever I look at the flowers!
