Today I am going to show you how to make the paper mums that I used for the mixed bouquet in yesterday’s post. These mums are so simple and colorful that you can make several dozen to use throughout the summer and fall for your party decoration, gift toppers or for wedding flowers. In the photo above you can see how beautiful a bridesmaid bouquet can look made from metallic paper mums.

Below is an example of a centerpiece using the mums and a simple terra cotta pot. Making a paper flower hair clip or corsage is an easy added touch and these flowers work so well as gift toppers or napkin rings. The sky is the limit. For these blooms I used metallic letter weight paper that I found at paper-papers.com. The colors are, Mandarin, Mars, Bloom, Punch & Violette and the leaf is made from Botanic. You can find all of the tools and materials needed listed on the right hand side at the top of this post – including links to our top-match paper picks from our shop for this project.
There is something about the metallic paper that adds a luxe look to the flowers that I just love so investing an a few packs of your favorite colors could be a great addition to your craft supplies. Members can download the template and step-by-step photo tutorial below, and you will have a handful of blooms in no time. Enjoy! ~ Lia & Team
