Week 3: Cone Flowers

Welcome back to Week 3 of 52 Weeks of Paper/Fabric Flowers. This week let's try some Cone Flowers. I call these Cone Flowers b/c they are made up of a bunch of tiny little cones. These were a big hit in my husband's and my wedding flowers. These gold ones here would be very elegant as single flowers in a black and gold wedding or you could make festive pink and white for a bridal shower.

What I love about these is that they work as accents. You don't have to make a ton for them to be effective. Let's say you have a live flower bouquet and you need to add an accent of a chartreuse or a pink (or whatever.) Make some of these out of card stock, hit them with appropriately colored spray paint and there you go. Done and done.

This week comes with a video! After the jump:
