Handmade Paper Flowers that Will Wow Your Guests

One of my favorite times of year is when the Martha Stewart Weddings DIY Issues comes out. It's always filled with the most amazing handmade loveliness. This year I'm completely over the moon for these modern paper flower arrangements that look almost real. And unlike real flowers, these paper flower can last for ever. In fact, I made Martha Stewart paper flowers for our ceremony decor and, five years later, they brighten up the guest room and serve a a daily reminder of our wedding day.MSW-large-arrangement-paper-flowers-opt
