DIY Wedding - Flower Peek

There's one thing to say about making your own flowers for your wedding....
It's a relaxing, sit-down, bond with your daughter type of time.  I really enjoy it.  And it's a good thing, because these flowers take a ton of time to make! 

I posted some flower ideas here when I was still undecided on the direction I wanted to go.  Can you tell what one won my heart? :))

All the colored flowers are being done by hand.  I found that watering down acrylic paint and painting the paper before making the flower works great.  And with the vast variety of acrylic paints out there, I was able to find the exact colors for our wedding! Score!
