DIY Paper Flowers From Recycled Maps

DIY Paper Flowers From Recycled Maps

A friend of mine "pinned" the above image on Pinterest and I instantly fell in love with the idea. So, I tracked down a tutorial on how to make them...which basically involves old maps (or books or any paper that has otherwise outlived its original useful life).

Amber at Fancy Pants Weddings was wonderful enough to post this easy tutorial for creating lovely paper flowers. Don't limit yourself just to weddings though, these could be great for any party, a child's room or to spruce up a gift (instead of using a bow).

If you don't feel like making them yourself, Green Cycle Designs on Etsy (where I finally discovered the original image came from), makes a plethora of wonderful items out of recycled paper products. And her prices are very reasonable.
