Paper Boutonniere Instructions


To create the Paper Boutonniere, follow the steps below:

1. Use a digital or manual die cut machine to cut a variety of leaves from green paper. Try using different leaf styles and different colors of paper to get a good variety. Also vary the length and width of the leaves.

2. Use a digital or manual die cut machine to cut THIS flower die from Silhouette. I chose an Anemone and added a blue brad to the center.

3. Thread wire around the bottom of the flower and add leaves to the back of the boutonniere.

Here's another look at the boutonniere. I added a bit of blue with another die cut to finish the boutonniere before I placed it on the suit lapel.
