I have been designing paper flowers for three years now and have made quite a few cute garlands and paper flower back drops. But I have yet to design and make a pure, white paper flower garland for a wedding, bridal shower or baby shower. Or just for a special place in your home – I’ll be using this one over a window in my home to give me some privacy. I really like the idea of the translucent vellum but you can certainly change the paper to a colored paper depending on your decor. Metallic vellum is a thin, transparent type of paper with an even surface. We decided to create this show-stopping backdrop from simple paper flowers inspired by the pretty white jasmine flowers in my garden. You will find the templates below or you can download the SVG and cut on your cutting machine to whip this up super quickly. String the flowers together using a white cotton and needle then hang them vertically from a branch, dowel or ribbon. A happy accident happened when I was photographing this paper flower garland in my yard – the sprinkler came on and the paper got slightly wet – the result was beautiful – it crinkled the paper slightly which added a little extra interest to the piece – try it at home using a spray bottle filled with water. You can find the tutorial on my site Thanks! ~Lia
