Discover how to make paper roses for your wedding day

One sure fire way of making certain your wedding day is unique and personal to you is by creating much of the decoration yourself.

Using DIY wedding ideas also has the advantage of making your budget stretch that bit further, so you can do more and possibly invite more of your friends and family to join in the celebrations at your reception.

I love paper flowers. They are so versatile. You can use them to decorate your wedding tables, as favours, create floral hairbands and bouquets.

Match the colours up to the wedding theme you've chosen and if you want something rather more unusual, use old sheet music paper or books to show the text.

You'll find a guide to making these paper flowers on the Ellinee blog, which is full of some amazing craft ideas for you. Very little equipment is necessary, just some time and concentration.

Enjoy!
