Paper Wedding Bouquets! Check out my Etsy

So here is a new venture I am going on!  I have already told you all about the Etsy Shop, LoriBoeDesign, where I share and sell my new creations that are wedding related, and the newest addition is my paper, silk, and cotton flower bouquets.  Below is my all paper bouquet titled 'Mustard and Gray" and is composed of handmade (by me!) origami and rolled textured paper flowers.  I abolutely love this color combo and have been seeing alot of it lately.  The center of the Origami flowers are adorned with a button, for a little extra home made style.
The papers I am using are very high quality, heavy cardstock, and this particular bouquet uses several different shades of mustard yellow, which I think adds to the texture and interest quite a bit.  The stems have been wrapped in a chocolate brown, and have a twine knotting going all the up to the base of the bouquet.  Also, what a great keepsake these make from your wedding!! Plop it in a cool vintage vase and you now have a beautiful bouquet that will never wilt!

Let me know your feedback on these too, it is a new idea I had, I have seen them around and thought "I can make those! and they are so adorable!" Also the single flowers by themselves could be used for all kinds of wedding decor.  One at each placesetting, or maybe strands of them hanging from a ceiling or tree would be amazing!
 Above is another I made of a combination of printed papers in a mixture of antique blue, chocolate and mocha browns, taupe and cream colors.  I tied the stems with a vintage inspired ribbon for a fun added texture, and something fun to hang as you walk down the aisle.  The above right is the bouquet on display in a vintage milk jug that I have, love it on my mantle! 

All of these bouquets can be found at my etsy shop,
And of course if you are looking for items for your full bridal party, or items for other areas of your wedding, just ask!  I am always happy to create custom orders for my gals!

 So all of the above are made of paper, and below I will show you a mixture of the silks and handmade cotton and burlap!  These are just stunning, and can be made in any color scheme you can think of. 

At the top of the bouquet is a handmade cotton fringed layered flower with black rhinestones at  the center.  The larger flowers are silk peonies and ranunuculas, in creamy ivory and blush pinks.  These are all filled with fuzzy dusty miller leaves and hand rolled burlap rosettes.  I can get enough of it!!  Very elegant, but still rustic and chic, perfect for a barn or outdoor wedding.  Again, these can all be made to custom order, or quantity, simply check out the Etsy Shop!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my new creations, of course, my favorites will always be fresh flowers!  But these are some fun and unique options to think outside the box, I also plan on making a few samples of combining the two, this would be a great way to incorporate new textures and match specific wedding color schemes!  So keep checking in to see what I can think up next!

Much Love, Lori :)
