When I got married, I made myself a crepe paper flower bouquet. I'm so happy that almost 11 years later I still have it—and it looks quite fresh! This paper bouquet, made from cupcake liners and flower stickers, is fast, easy, and so pretty. It is one of the ideas in our new party crafting booklets, which you can find at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Check the gallery for how-to shots and instructions below.
