Paper Flower In Colors Bouquet {Tutorial}

Well, as you know, the new 2011 - 2012 Ideas Book and Catologue was released on July 1st.  The gorgeous cover shows that paper flowers are hot, hot, hot right now.  I used the cover as my inspiration to recreate the beautiful Paper Flower Bouquet that I first introducted you to here.  These bouquets are made completely out of paper using various Stampin' Up! punches and dies. 

Several In Colors are featured in this bouquet.  I used Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, and Peach Parfait, So Saffron as the main colours. Wouldn't you love to make this beautiful bouquet  for someone special?  Now you can!  Due to an overwhelming demand, I have put together a detailed tutorial on how make each of these stunning flowers and how to replicate the bouquet.  The tutorial is in four parts.  Each tutorial gives clear step-by-step instructions with tons of gorgeous photos on how to make the roses, leaves, ranunculus, and white hydrangea to make this bouquet. The complete tutorial is 22 pages in length and has 57 photos.  The flowers are not difficult to make, but a lot of photos are required to give complete step-by-step instruction.   It also gives lots of instruction on how to create the subtle effects that really make the flowers look real and come to life.  Click here for more pics. 

The complete  four part tutorial on how to make this project is available for purchase for only  $6.95 

UPDATE:  (added June 1, 2012):  You are purchasing a tutorial from 2011.  Some of the items used in the tutorial have been discontinued from Stampin' Up!  This tutorial is still easily re-created.  Simple substitutions are noted here.  As of June 1, 2012, the card stock colours Peach Parfait, and Poppy Parade are no longer available.  Also, Stampin' Pastels, the 5-Petal Punch, and the Mat Pack are  no longer available for ordering through Stampin' Up!  The Stampin' Pastels can easily be substituted for other pastels, or with the corresponding classic ink sponged on with a cotton tipped applicator.  The 5-petal punch was used to create the tiny green leaves amongst the white hydrangea flowers.  This punch can easily be substituted for the Blossom Petals Builder punch or or the 5-petal shaped flower from the Island Floral die.  Any piece of thin foam can be substituted for the foam mat from the Mat Pack.  The card stock colours Peach Parfait and Poppy parade can be substituted for many different colour combinations.  Please see the original colour combinations for this bouquet here.

Here is a testimonial from one of my customers: 

"The tutorial looks fabulous!  You've done such a wonderful job of explaining each flower and leaf, and I can hardly wait to give the paper flowers a try.  A couple of times recently I've been disappointed with for-fee tutorials, but certainly not with yours.  I know it was a lot of work for you, and it was worth every penny to me!  Thanks so much for sharing your creativity and for putting together a thorough and well-illustrated tutorial."
