I have been designing paper flowers for four years now and have made quite a few garlands and paper flower back drops. But I have yet to design and make a pure, white paper flower garland for a wedding, bridal shower or baby shower. Or just for a special place in your home – I’ll be using this one over a studio window to add some interest. I was given this incredible vellum paper from paper-papers.com recently. This metallic vellum has a pretty sheen which adds to the luxe feel of these paper flowers. We decided to create this show-stopping backdrop from simple paper flowers inspired by the white jasmine flowers in my garden. You will find the PDF templates and the SVG cutting machine file over on Paper-Papers. To keep the translucent look we used clear fishing line to string the flowers into long garlands then tied each strand onto a dowel. You can see them below against the jasmine bush as a second backdrop. A happy accident happened when I was photographing this paper flower garland in my yard – the sprinkler came on and the paper got slightly wet – the result was beautiful – it crinkled the paper slightly which added a little extra interest to the piece – try it at home using a spray bottle filled with water. The vellum is a bit stronger than regular paper and works well with the added step. This paper flower garland makes the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs or can be made using different colors of paper for a summer BBQ party or children’s birthday party. If you don’t want to use the vellum paper, you can use any text weight paper – I might try it in a metallic paper next!
