Our DIY wedding decorations are such fun to make. We want to help make your wedding day a unique and personal one, and the best way to achieve that is to make it yourself! Todays project is this paper cut boxwood that can be used as part of your wedding decor to create a luscious, ‘fresh from the garden‘ look. We used two different shades of metallic papers from Paper-Papers (shop this project below), and glued each piece in layers along a length of twine for a natural look. Our fave uses for this sweet paper boxwood garland are to drape it around a simple wedding cake, string it to the backs of your chairs or hang longer lengths of it as a backdrop to the ceremony itself. You can also add it to some of our paper flower designs to make stunning wedding centerpieces. We think it would look just divine with our paper flower anemone, or our sweet paper succulents.
To make this paper boxwood garland, simply click on the SVG file below and print and cut on your cutting machine. If you want to cut by hand, download the PDF and use a sharp craft knife to trim the pattern. We like to score and gently fold the center of each leaf to give the foliage depth and dimension – it also helps the light bounce from that gorgeous metallic paper! Using a low temperature glue gun, attach the paper boxwood to a length of natural twine in layers -simple!
