I'm kind of obsessed with mums right now. Not all types, mostly the really delicate, thin-petaled ones. This was brought on by the absolutely beautiful mum in the bouquet my mom brought to our house from a dinner they went to. It's been sitting on our dining room table for the last couple of weeks, and I absolutely love it.
I couldn't find a single tutorial for a paper mum, no matter how long I looked. So I decided it was time to just wing it, using several techniques from various other paper flower tutorials I've followed in the past. After posting a picture of my first finished product on Facebook, it was recommended that I write my own tutorial...so here we go! I'll be using book pages from the hardback book I made into a purse a few days ago, because, honestly, who doesn't love book pages?!
