  • How to make a bouquet. T Shirt Flower Wedding Bouquet - Step 1
    Step 1

    For Each Flower:

    Cut 3 strips approximately 2” wide by 18” long or however big you’d like your flowers. See other technique below for thicker flowers.

    Step 10

    Cut kraft paper using a decorative edge scissor or scallop scissor. Wrap paper around flower bouquet. Tie with twine, lace or ribbon to match your wedding colors.

    Now you have a beautiful DIY wedding bouquet for the bride or bridesmaids! You can also use these flowers as corsages by simply attaching a pin to the back instead of a stem. You may also cut leaves and attach to the flowers as I’ve done in the finished bouquet.

    Another technique is to cut the material 4 inches wide and fold in half, sewing the cut edge together with your sewing machine. Then use your scissors to cut down the folded half and then cut the ¼” strips. Follow the instructions by rolling the flower as described above. This produces a thicker flower.

    Have fun crafting and enjoy!

Whoops, I meant to ask if this was the version in the tutorial or the one you mentioned at the end for the thicker flower. >.<

Hm. Just thought of this: Are the flowers in the picture the single or double-layer version?
